IMG_CBA44F2A4775-1 2.jpeg

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!

Ingredients

  • 6 large, cage free organic eggs

  • Bowl with ice cold water

Directions

  1. Place all 6 eggs in a large saucepan with water, allow water to cover eggs by approximately 1 inch.

  2. Cover your pan with lid and bring water to a boil over high heat.

  3. 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.

  4. After your desired time transfer the eggs to your large bowl of ice cold water.

  5. Let the eggs cool for about 4 minutes, or until they are cool to the touch, then peel and serve!

Unsure how long to boil your eggs for? Here’s a quick and easy guide!

  • 4 minutes: soft boiled eggs
