Hard-boiled eggs are a fantastic and extremely versatile food, but it can be difficult to make perfect hard-boiled eggs. No worries though we’ll show you how to make perfect hard-boiled eggs in about 20 minutes!
- Place eggs in a pot, not stacked on top of one another, cover with water to about an inch over top of eggs.
- Bring the pot to a boil over medium-high heat.
- Once boiling, cover, remove from heat.
- Let stand 10-15 minutes.
- Peel and eat!
- I peel my hard-boiled eggs under a very small stream of cold running water. This helps loosen the shell from the egg.
What all can hard-boiled eggs be used for?
The first, and most obvious answer is just plain eating them! A hard-boiled egg with a little salt or pepper, or maybe some tabasco sauce, is awesome!
Hard-boiled eggs are also used to make deviled eggs (or our Spicy Deviled Eggs), which are extremely delicious. Deviled eggs make a great snack or a side dish to barbecue. We love a good deviled egg, as do our kids.
Hard-boiled eggs also go really well in salads. We sometimes add egg to our chicken salads or just a plain salad to get a little extra protein in. They’re great in a tossed green salad with tomatoes, red onions, and shaved carrots!
