Hard boiled eggs

hard boiled eggs
Hard boiled eggs are great for lunch. I have two shown in the picture. Two eggs is usually the right amount for each person, but I sometimes have just one. They are very easy to make. Fill a small pot with cold water. Make sure the tops of the eggs are covered with water. You don't need any more water in the pot than that. Boil them on high on the stove until the water starts bubbling. Then put them on low heat for about 20 minutes. I use #3 on my stove. Twenty minutes is the approximate time. If you like them harder, then you can cook them longer. It is important you cook them enough though. If you take them off sooner, the eggs will be too soft, making it hard to peal the shells off later on. Be sure to run the eggs a little under cold water before you peel them, because the shells are very hot. I have them here already cut. You can add a little salt to them when they are done. You can also make egg salad from hard boiled eggs.
