How to peel a hard-boiled egg. http://youtu.be/ETgWdRfRY2U
This eleven second video will teach you how to do this, and enjoy the segment from this morning as the anchors give it a try!
So now what do I DO with all the hard boiled eggs from Easter? Here are some suggestions:
Place the tomato stem side down and make parallel cuts in the tomato. Slide the sliced hard-boiled egg into each cut, and pour a rainbow of dressing over it.
Asparagus with Egg
Prepare roasted or steamed asparagus. Drizzle a whisked combination of 3 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil, 1 Tbsp. lemon juice, 1/2 tsp. Dijon-style mustard and a dash of black pepper over the asparagus. Finely chop an entire hard-boiled egg, and sprinkle over the dressing.
Green Eggs with Ham
Slice in half to prepare deviled eggs, but set aside the yolk. Blend together cooked, drained, chopped spinach with minced garlic, low fat mayonnaise, and a dash of wasabi powder. Fill eggs and top with a few pieces of ham sandwich meat cut into less than 1/4" pieces. (Alternately, you could use bacon bits)
Making the elusive 'perfect' hard-boiled egg
6 large eggs, 2 quarts water, 1 Tablespoon salt. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Remove immediately when large bubbles appear. Remove from heat, cover, and let sit for ten minutes. Transfer the eggs to a bowl of ice and water. Let cool here for 5 minutes. They are ready!
AND how long can I keep those eggs? Storage time: In the shell, hard-cooked eggs can be refrigerated safely up to one week. Refrigerate in their original carton to prevent odor absorption. Once peeled, eggs should be eaten that day.
