Hard boiled eggs should be two colors and two colors only, yellow and white….not grey, not green, not black….yellow and white. Perfect for egg salad, making salad into dinner, or just to eat as a snack or fast breakfast. The secret to perfection?–use a timer:
Place eggs in a pot covering them with cold water by about an inch. Bring to a boil over high heat. Right when they reach a boil, remove the pot from the heat and cover. Let them sit in the hot water for 17 minutes. Run under cold water, crack and peel.
