Boiling Eggs for Easter! (Avoiding an Easter Eggtastrophy!)

Don’t laugh…I am serious. There IS a trick to boiling eggs!

Has this ever happened to you? Your water is boiling, you drop the eggs in, then…..crack….tiny bubbles come up from the eggs, then egg whites slowly rise to the top of the boiling water. Now, instead of hard boiled you have accidental poached eggs. Or, an Easter Eggtastrophy if you will… Bummer.

(This is what I have been told happens anyways…hehe)

Here is the trick on how to boil hard boiled eggs…drum roll please….

Start off by placing eggs in COOL water in a large pot on the stove.
Then, turn the burner on high heat to boiling. As soon as the water boils, you know this is the time to …
take the pot off of burner and cover. Then, allow the eggs to steam for 15 mins.
Pour half of the hot water out of the pot and add some cool water. Let sit for 5 mins. Then, take eggs out of pot and place on a paper towel lined plate.
Now you are ready to decorate!

Whala! I pray this helps your avoid an Easter Eggtastropy in your home! He is Risen!
