The hard boiled egg is where fast food meets healthy food! A quick and easy source of protein, with approximately 6 grams of protein and 60 calories per egg. Perfect addition to any meal, or even on it’s own as a snack.
Here is my quick and easy recipe to help you make the perfect hard boiled eggs every time!
6 large, cage free organic eggs
Bowl with ice cold water
Place all 6 eggs in a large saucepan with water, allow water to cover eggs by approximately 1 inch.
Cover your pan with lid and bring water to a boil over high heat.
Once your water is boiling, set a timer for 7 minutes (or longer depending on your perfect egg - see below) and turn the heat down to medium-high heat.
After your desired time transfer the eggs to your large bowl of ice cold water.
Let the eggs cool for about 4 minutes, or until they are cool to the touch, then peel and serve!
