Yesterday I decided to cook some hard boiled eggs. I hadn't eaten one in years. I ate one, followed by another and another. Ack! My lunch and snack yesterday ended up being a total of four hard boiled eggs. I don't know if I was that hungry or the eggs were that good. Maybe a lot of both but I couldn't stop eating them.

A lot of people overcook the eggs. They get that green ring around them and they are yucko!

Here's how you cook a proper hard boiled egg:
1) Put eggs in pan
2) Fill the pan with cold water in until it is about an inch above the eggs
3) Cover the pan and bring to a rolling boil
4) Once boil is achieved, turn the heat to simmer and set the timer for 12 minutes
5) After 12 minutes, stop the cooking process by running the eggs in cold water

A few tips about eggs:
Fresh eggs are harder to peel than older eggs
Wondering if an egg went bad? Put the egg in a bowl of water. If it stands up or floats toss it! A good egg will lay on it's side on the bottom.

Nutrition facts:
Think eggs are unhealthy and contribute to high cholesterol and heart disease? Think again! Foods such as eggs and shrimp that contain a lot of cholesterol actually correct your cholesterol levels.
One egg contains just 75 calories and tons of nutrition. Click here for more info
