Eggs are a nutritional powerhouse, which makes them a great keto food. Like most ketonians, they are a huge staple in my keto diet, but after spending quite a lot of time frying them, scrambling them, poaching them, etc., I was eventually ready to embark on something different: deviled eggs. Those pesky eggs, however, can be a bit temperamental when it comes to cooking and peeling them. Several failed attempts to get my eggs peeled without losing large chunks of it at a time later, I found a method that is fool proof, and works every time, regardless of age or starting temperature.
The perfect, hard-boiled egg:
Step 1: Place the eggs in a pot, and cover with cold water to about one inch above the eggs.
Step 2: Place the eggs on high heat until they come to a rolling boil.
Step 3: Remove from heat, and cover the pot of eggs for 11-12 minutes.
Step 4: Pour the water off the eggs, and fill the pot with ice.
Step 5: When the eggs are cool, place one egg in a mason jar. Fill the jar until it covers the egg halfway.
Step 6: Slosh the egg around in the jar vigorously.
Step 7: Peel the egg under running water and voila! Perfection!
Step 8: Repeat steps five through seven with the remaining eggs.
I know it sounds like a bunch of steps and a lot of work, but if you've ever struggled to get eggs that don't look like they've been mangled (especially right enforce a gathering!), the results are worth it!
