Making perfect hard boiled eggs is easier than I thought. What is a perfect hard boiled egg anyway?
A perfect hard boiled egg has the yolk cooked all the way through, but not overcooked and has no dark ring around the yellow. It has to be easy to peel so you can make deviled eggs.
I love hard boiled in chopped in a salad or just as a snack with salt and pepper. I love this special egg salad from child hood.
These pimento cheese deviled eggs are always a hit at any gathering.
