The Incredible Egg

For a healthy, filling, and inexpensive snack, I love to eat hard boiled eggs.  To dress ’em up, sometimes I turn them into egg salad which is fun to eat plain, on top of a bed of fresh spinach leaves, or nestled in wholesome bread for a hearty sandwich.

Hard boiled egg snack:

1-2 hard boiled, peeled eggs

add sea salt and cracked black pepper to taste

Egg salad:

slice and cube 4 hard boiled eggs

add 2T of mayonnaise (made from scratch, or purchased from the store)

pinch of sea salt and dash of cracked pepper to taste

1/2 to 1 tsp of dried tarragon

optional: for added color and crunch, add chopped green onions or diced pickles

My entire family loves egg salad.  However, I must admit, I’m not a big fan of the egg cracking/peeling process.  For years, I’ve done the hot water boil, immediately followed by an ice water bath to cool them down enough that I don’t scald my fingers while peeling.  Sometimes I just put them in the fridge and let them cool for a few hours before I work on them.

Well, I just saw a freakingly cool vid by Tim Ferriss on how to de-shell hard boiled eggs without peeling them, and I have to share it with you.  I’m intrigued enough that I’m going to try this technique this weekend, and I’ll let you know how it pans out.
