I've never been a super fan of hard boiled eggs. I love egg salad, but those stinking eggs are SO hard to peel!
Sometimes the peel just slides off, and I feel victorious! Other times, most of the time, I must admit, the shell peels off in bits and pieces and I'm missing chunks of the white (my favorite part!!)
But, hooray! I found a new way to "hard boil" eggs!! It's not, technically, hard "boiling" because I'm actually steaming the eggs.
- - a large pot
- - a steamer basket
- - a dozen eggs (or however many you choose;))
- Place steamer basket in pot and fill pot with water just to level with the bottom of the steamer basket
- Place eggs in steamer basket
- Cover and steam for 20-22 minutes
Note: as my sons will attest to, I'm not very good about remembering stuff on the stove! I know this is horrible and could be dangerous (if I were left at home alone! Hahaha 😜)-- I walk away and get involved in something else and forget there's something on the stove!
SO,...I found the best solution! The Instant Pot!! It is my favorite appliance! I like it so much that I now have two of them! It steams, slow cooks (kinda fast slow cooking), pressure cooks, sautes, makes yogurt (I haven't tried this yet) and is a fantastic rice cooker!
