Perfect Hardboiled Eggs

Have you been avoiding eggs because of concerns about cholesterol? If so, fear no more and start adding these nutrition powerhouses back into your diet. The latest nutrition research finds that the cholesterol that we eat in foods such as eggs and shrimp actually have very little effect on blood cholesterol levels. In fact, eggs are an inexpensive source of high-quality protein as well as choline and Vitamin D. Hard boiled eggs are a super-easy breakfast or snack when you make them ahead of time. Here’s how to make the perfect hard boiled egg:

Place eggs in saucepan, cover with water. Bring to a boil. As soon as water starts to boil, remove pan from heat, cover with a lid and let the eggs sit in the water for exactly 15 minutes. At the end of 15 minutes, drain the eggs and put them in a bowl of ice water. Done!
