Bible Studies! The Perfect Hard Boiled Egg.

Our church started a Beth Moore study this week. I contemplated whether I should do it since I am already involved in BSF, but I decided that it is a good place to meet people at church and make some friends. I haven't ever done a Beth Moore study before, but I have heard they are wonderful. This study is called Living Beyond Yourself. I started the homework today and it is definitely more than my daily BSF homework, but I think I can manage it. Now have two days of the week to look forward to, Tuesdays and Thursdays!

Lately fried eggs have made me feel sick to my stomach! I like boiled eggs better and they make a for a nice healthy snack (I don't eat the yokes). I found this recipe for the perfect boiled egg a few years ago. It seems like a lot of steps, but it actually works. Even though I don't eat the yokes, I like them to look pretty!

The Perfect Boiled Egg

Take the eggs out of the refrigerator and let them come to room temperature.

Put eggs in a large enough pot to cover the bottom in one layer. (Depending on how many eggs you make is how big a pot you will need.)

Fill pot with enough water to cover and be one inch above eggs.

Bring water to a boil and as soon as it comes to a rapid boil turn off the heat and cover with a lid and let sit for 17 minutes.

Stop the cooking process by draining the hot water and putting the eggs into cold ice water for 10 minutes. The cold water will also seperate the egg from the shell making it easier to peel.

Drain and store in the refrigerator.
See the pretty yoke! I love to eat the whites with a little bit of salt.

UPDATE! I found the original recipe for boiled eggs the other day. I knew I was missing a step! After letting the eggs cool in an ice bath (do this only 2 mins). Bring the water back to a boil and put in the boiling water for 10 seconds, then back to the ice bath for 15 more mins. This step is what makes it easier to peel.
