Hard Boiling tips

A lot of people think that hard boiling eggs is a tricky and complicated process.

It’s not hard at all, and we want to share our easy method that will simplify your life.

We have a trick to getting the perfect hard boiled egg: BAKING them. Yes, you can bake your eggs in the oven to hard boil them!

Here’s how: preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Place eggs in a muffin tin (one per space) and bake for 30 minutes.

Remove them from the oven and plunge them in ice water until cooled, or 10 minutes.

That’s it! You just made 12 perfect hard boiled eggs.

egg salad secret ingredient

Growing up our dad always made us egg salad. We loved it on a slice of wheat bread (try it on our Homemade French Bread!).

I absolutely loved Dad’s egg salad and could never seem to get mine to taste as good as his.

I finally convinced my dad to give me the “secret ingredient” and he finally let us share it here on the blog: a dash of Worcestershire sauce.

Don’t believe us? Try it for yourself. One bite and you’ll be hooked!

After you have cooked your eggs to the hard boiled stage, let cool.

Peel the eggs and dice them up. Place them in a bowl and set aside.

In another bowl combine the mayonnaise, pickle relish, and Worcestershire sauce and stir together well.

Gently fold in the chopped eggs to the mayonnaise mixture. You can add in more mayo or relish to get your egg salad to the desired consistency.

We love to serve it on bread with lettuce and a thick tomato slice.

best type of bread for your egg salad

We have had our classic egg salad on so many different types of bread, but our favorite is any bread with grains.

Classic egg salad is also good in a pita.

And if you want to take it to a whole new level, then toast your bread. It’s so delicious.

how long is egg salad good for in the fridge?

If you store your classic egg salad in an airtight container in the fridge, it should last for up to 3 to 5 days.

It may start to get a little watery after a few days, but it’s safe to drain off any excess liquid and still eat the egg salad.

You don’t want to leave your egg salad setting out at room temperature for more than 2 hours. Bacteria can grow rapidly, so pay attention on how long it is out of the fridge.

Also try to avoid having it in the hot sun for very long at all.
