Hard Boiling Tips:

Hard boiling eggs can get pretty time consuming, and having to watch that boiling pot gets old. Want to know our trick to getting the perfect hard boiled egg with hardly ANY prep? Baking them!

After Easter, we would eat egg salad for days with all of our dyed Easter eggs. I finally convinced my dad to give me the “secret ingredient” and he finally let us share it here on the blog: Worstechire sauce. Don’t trust us? Try it for yourself!

This is what we consider to be perfect egg salad! The best part about it? Only 4 ingredients!
