Hard Boiled Eggs-How to and recipes
This is an easy sandwich to make, and it sure is good. Sometimes the simplest things often are. Don’t you think?
I often have hard boiled eggs in the fridge as my family loves them, well some of them like the whites only, I think they are crazy. I like the yolks just as much.
It’s great having hard boiled eggs in the fridge when you are hungry, just peel, slice and place the egg on a piece of crusty bread with some salt and pepper and a few leaves of spinach. Makes a great quick lunch as I’m heading out the door!
To make hard boiled eggs, place eggs (beginning with room temperature eggs they say prevents cracking) onto a saucepan and cover the eggs with an inch of water, two tablespoons of white vinegar and a teaspoon salt. bring it to boil, cover the pan with and remove from the hot burner for 17-20 minutes depending the size eggs I use. Pour off hot water and fill pan with cold water, leave eggs in cold water until they are completely cooled. Peel them under cool running water, or refrigerate to use later.
I don’t make deviled eggs often. When I do, I make them with nonfat yogurt instead of mayonnaise. I substitute nonfat yogurt for mayo in lots of recipes.
By replacing the mayo with nonfat yogurt, I feel I’m able to eat more sweet treats that way.
I make potato salad without mayo as well as tunafish.
I also make deviled eggs with nonfat yogurt.
Cut the hard boiled eggs in half length wise and scoop out the yolks.
With a fork and crumble the yolks before adding the yogurt so there won’t be lumps
For six hard boiled eggs I add 1/4 cup nonfat yogurt, 2-3 tablespoons brown mustard, salt and pepper. Mix it until it’s smooth and creamy. Fill a piping Bag with egg mixture. I used a 2d tip.
Pipe onto eggs white halves and sprinkle with paprika.
Okay….now get those eggs boiled 🙂
Love the egg recipe! But I’m wondering if you have any tips for peeling the eggs so they don’t pull or break the whites once boiled? I tried making ilex eggs last week and it was a disaster! help!!!
I dint typically have any trouble when I follow the directions I gave, fresher eggs are harder to peel, so if tpuou purchase eggs often, use the oldest ones for hard boiling. The vinegar is supposed to help keep them in tact as well as prevent them from turning green. Start with room temp. eggs also. If you peel them after they have been in the fridge sometimes that is easier too. Hope those tips help.
Thanks for the vinegar tip, and for peeling them after the fridge!
Really tried to say ‘deviled eggs’ above – but my iPad changed the word and I missed it – sorry!!

I love hard boiled eggs, especially the yolks! All of the above looks delicious!
I love hard boiled eggs these look delish Diane. Hugs!
My husband is addicted to deviled eggs (or Rooster Eggs as we call them) but mine aren’t nearly as pretty as yours. I’ve gotta invest in one of them new-fangled pastry bags!
