So here is the first way I will share !
Hard Boiled Eggs Tender-Creamy But Cooked Yolks
♥ Why do hard boiled eggs crack ? The bigger, rounded end of the egg contains an air bubble...So when the egg heats up the air inside that bubble expands and pushes out against the shell and causes the cracking.
♥ Do NOT cook your hard boiled eggs with other foods you are boiling like your macaroni or potatoes
♥ When tested cooking the eggs with cold water right from the start gave a more consistent, controlled cooking and outcome.
♥ Hard boiled eggs are a great grab and go food so keep some made up for those busy times in your life.
♥ Let eggs stand at room temperature for about 20 minutes before cooking to eliminate the chill to heat shock.
♥ Always have just a single layer of eggs with room around them in the pan so they can cook evenly. And cooking 1 dozen or less at a time to help with even cooking.
♥ Fresh eggs are harder to peel.
♥ Hard boiled eggs can be stored in an airtight container for up to 5-7 days.
♥ If you like your egg a little runny in the middle instead of firm the you will need to cook it a few minutes less.
♥ When eggs are exposed to high heat for to long they turn green and smelly lol
♥ Hard boiled eggs are a good source of protein, quick to make and great to have on hand to soothe that hungry belly ! And pretty affordable.
♥ You want to bring your water to a boil BUT you do NOT want it to stay boiling
♥ You really do not keep boiling the eggs ...You just will boil the water and then remove and let the heat cook the eggs. (There are a few instances that some choose to continue to boil)
♥ The size of the egg can make a difference in minutes when cooking and their doneness ( bigger more, smaller less)
♥ When I am going to peel the eggs I crack the egg shells a little before putting them in the cold water to help them peel much easier.
♥ What You Will Need:
Depending on how many you need for your meal or occasion just adjust the amount !
♥ 6-10 Cold Eggs
♥ Cold Water
♥ A Pinch Of Baking Soda
♥ Place all eggs in the bottom of a pan that will accommodate the amount of eggs you are cooking in one single later.
♥ Add enough cold water to cover eggs about 1-2 inches above eggs.
♥ Bring it to a rolling boil...shut off heat immediately, remove from burner and let pan sit covered for 12 minutes covered.
♥ Just before the 12 minutes is up prepare a large bowl of ice water that you will put the eggs in when done
♥ 12 minutes are up ! Now spoon each egg into the ice water bath.
This will keep them from cooking more and make them easier to peel...wait about 4-5 minutes they will still feel somewhat warm.
♥ When eggs are completely cooled they are ready to peel !
Tap eggs gently on the countertop cracking the shell. Then roll gently on the countertop...Run under cool-cold water peeling egg from the larger end where the air pocket is
♥ Make sure you completely remove all eggs shell before using them.
♥ Now you can eat them ! ENJOY !
♥♥♥ Did you know that it is almost impossible to hard boil eggs above the high altitude of 10,000 feet ?
