Last week, I was browsing through my recipe collection when I realized I had never posted on hard boiling eggs. I have posted recipes for egg salad, potato salad that has hard boiled eggs in it, etc. but never explained how to boil an egg. Oops!!
Well, here you go! Step by step directions on how to hard boil eggs!
Whether you are enjoying these by themselves as a healthy, low carb snack…..or using in egg salad, potato salad, etc.; hard boiled eggs are easy to make and have lots of uses!!
