Easter Eggs... Boiling the perfect Egg!

The best way to insure beautiful boiled eggs (without that ugly green film on the yolk) is to start off with the eggs in cold water. Bring the water to a boil, and boil for 3 minutes. Then, turn the heat off, cover the pot and let them sit for ten minutes.

To dye the boiled eggs, use small juice glasses or coffee cups. I like the glasses because you/the kids can see the egg. Add water and a tablespoon of vinegar to the glasses. (about half way full) Then add a few drops of food coloring. Let the eggs sit for a minute.* Remove the eggs and let them drain and dry on paper towels. Don't try to wipe them dry.

* Tip... The longer you let the egg sit in the dye, the darker it will get.

 Easter Eggs ready to hide! :-)

I like to make deviled eggs, potato salad, chicken salad, tuna salad and egg salad with my left over Easter Eggs! These have bacon added to them!
