Hard Boiled Eggs

Hard Boiled Eggs


Last week, I showed how to make an easy omelette….. Now it is time to go the hard way.

Let me introduce the hard boiled eggs which I think is the easiest egg recipe because it only requires you to add the eggs in a pot of boiling water and the deed is done within few minutes.

Some people prefer soft boiled eggs but I usually go for the hard ones and the only difference is that the later is usually cooked for a longer period of time than the initial.

Moreover, it is ideal to cook your eggs longer so that it will be properly done thereby minimizing your risk of consuming salmonella bacteria present in the eggs.

Remember that these bacterias are disease causing organism which are potentially harmful to our health. So I believe it will cause you no harm to  ensure that your eggs are properly cooked before consumption.

Let me share this tip with you!

Once you are done boiling your eggs, I recommend you dip them in cold water for few minutes before peeling. This method facilitates easy removal of the shell from the egg white (albumen) in order words, easily separates the egg white from the shell.
