Egg Salad

 

Salad - Egg Salad (7) 

 

This is a staple salad that everyone (who likes eggs) should be able to make.

It is an easy and versatile salad that you can change up however you want, for instance, I put olives in my egg salad but you don’t have to. 

 

The thing to remember when you are making an egg, potato, ham, or whatever wet salad is that you mix the dressing first so that all the ingredients are evenly distributed when you mix the dressing and the solid ingredients.

My Foolproof (almost) Method for Boiling Eggs

( Nothing is Foolproof for a talented Fool)

I’ve tried other methods as well but this one keeps being the one.  I’ve been boiling eggs like this for many years and seldom have a mishap.

 

What You Need:

Large pot of boiling water

Eggs

 

What you do:

1.  Take eggs out of fridge for at least 30 min.

2.  Boil 2-3 quarts of water

3.  WHEN THE WATER IS BOILING,  gently place the eggs in the

            water with a slotted spoon.

4.  Set your timer for 12 minutes after you’ve put them in.

5.  When timer goes off run them under cold water for 5-10 min.

 

You now have perfectly cooked eggs but more importantly, you have perfectly peelable eggs.
