How and how much to boil hard boiled eggs


The finished dish can be used for salads and snacks, just eat it for breakfast or take it with you on a picnic as a snack.

How to prepare eggs

Take the eggs out of the fridge for about an hour before boiling to allow them to come to room temperature. If this is not done, the shell may crack during cooking.

Be sure to rinse the eggs under running water so that no contaminants remain on the surface.

You can also pierce the egg with a pin or needle on the blunt side to make the finished product easier to clean. This must be done carefully so that the tip only enters a few millimeters and does not damage the inner protective film. If a crack has gone through the shell, it is better to refuse cooking.
