Perfectly Hard Boiled Eggs

Fun fact: The number of folds in that tall, pleated Chef’s toque you see in a lot of professional kitchens, and every stereotyped cartoon, are supposed to represent all the different ways you can cook an egg- that’s right… it is said that there are roughly ONE HUNDRED different way’s to cook an egg. I bet after reading that you will have a new found appreciation for that one breakfast cook at your favorite brunch spot who is scrambling the ten orders of eggs, frying seven, and poaching nearly a dozen that are on order all at the same time. From this point on let’s try to tackle and master at least one a week, eh? To start: The perfectly hard boiled egg… because let’s face it- no body likes a gray yolk. (Side note: Gray or Grey?)

Deviled Avocado Eggs & Radish Frisee Salad with Lemon Dijon Dressing & Shaved Pistachio

I can’t always wait for the next pot luck, or celebration shower to indulge in the one or two bites of the all loving, decadence of the deviled egg. I think it’s safe to say that everyone, internationally, has enjoyed the amuse bouche at least once in their lives. With the number of varieties of preparation, differing slightly by region, they all share something in common- one is never enough. A lovely appetizer, the perfect lunch, or even just a quick snack… my lighter version is not only delicious, loaded with potassium and heart healthy monosaturated fatty acids, but one of the most guilt-free variants of the recipe you may ever try.
