Hard Boiled Heaven

egg cookery part 2


My mom used to pack a hard boiled egg in a wax-paper bag with salt & pepper at the bottom for my school lunch. I'd peel the egg and dip it in the seasoning. It was a way of doing things she'd picked up from European train stations while backpacking after college. I still love to eat eggs this way. These are my criteria for a great hard boiled egg:

1. easy to peel

2. yolk doesn't turn grey-green

3. white not rubbery
