The incredible edible egg.

I've been cooking for over 30 years and have been hard boiling my eggs wrong the entire time! Here is the correct way to hard boil your eggs.

I've also included three different ingredients to add to scrambled eggs to for a different taste and texture along with an easy way to make egg sandwich.

Perfect Hardboiled Egg

Add eggs to the bottom of pan.

Add water to an inch above eggs

Boil for ten minutes

Remove eggs from pan

Place into ice water

Crack eggs under water

Peel eggs under water, this will ensure that your peel will come off easily.

Perfect hardboiled egg.

Scrambled eggs with Orange Juice

The OJ adds a unique flavor to the eggs.

Scrambled eggs with Yogurt

The yogurt makes the eggs light and fluffy.

Scrambled eggs with Seltzer

The seltzer adds more water to the eggs

Egg Sandwich

Easy sandwich made right in the pan

      As if the author had control over what ads her host site showed??? Why on earth would you find it necessary to be snarky about her recipes/add-ins/methods because the webhost contracted with advertisers to which you objected? Comments should be on the merit of the content of the author. Meanness, for the sake of simply being mean, is not welcome on these forums, which foster discussion and positive/constructive feedback.

    Cook the eggs as above for hard boiled eggs. Cool in cold water and immediately remove eggshell with a teaspoon. Crack and insert the spoon into the top oval shape and the shell will come away cleanly. Wait more than one minute and this method does not work as the white adheres again to the shell. Hope this is helpful.
