Be Hardcore, Eat Hard Boiled Eggs Any Time of the Day
It is common knowledge that eggs were our ancestors’ first source of protein. In fact, one large hard boiled egg comes with 6 grams of protein, and that’s 12 % of the daily recommended value.
So, if you recently started hitting the gym, one item that should be on your menu is eggs. And let’s face it, eggs, especially hard boiled eggs are not only protein-packed but also incredibly delicious. There is though, one downside when it comes to preparing eggs this way. It is almost impossible to peel them without having the white come out together with the shell.

So, don’t bother visiting hundreds of pages if you want to know everything about perfectly boiled eggs. I did that, only to come across a blog post on How to Make the Perfect Hard Boiled Eggs. This post had every trick in the book! Anything from boiling the eggs in cold or warm water, to even baking them. And hear this!

The Perfect Hard Boiled Egg Recipes
The best way to eat hard boiled eggs is shell them, cut them in half and stuff them with a paste of your choice.
Of course, don’t let the yolks go to waste, incorporate them in the paste as well. So, didn’t you get it by now? It is the recipe for deviled eggs. Only the most delicious side dish (or in my case, breakfast, lunch and dinner favorite).
Preparation of the paste
Below you will see a variety of different creams you can make. But the uniting thing they all have is the method of preparation. Get a large bowl and whisk vigorously until the filling is creamy and thick. Grab a Ziploc bag and fill it with the paste. Snip the corner off the bag and squeeze the filling into the halved egg whites.
The classic recipe for deviled eggs will require mayonnaise, mustard, vinegar, and some Worcestershire and hot sauce. And yes, salt and pepper too.
Besides the egg yolks, for the guacamole version, you will need 2 ripe avocados, a tablespoon of lemon juice, the same amount of sour cream and chopped cilantro (although you will need several more leaves to garnish the eggs). Add minced half a jalapeno pepper, and include or leave out the seeds depending on how hot you want your food to be. Don’t forget a pinch of salt!
Yup, you’ve read it right. Here’s more to the nutrition compartment: almonds come to the fore in this paste. Four teaspoons of them, to be more precise. Make sure they are slivered and toasted, mix them together with the yolks, a tablespoon of sour cream, 2 teaspoons of sweet pickle juice, a tablespoon of chopped green onions and chopped pimiento and there you have it: the best hard boiled eggs ever!
Go ahead and prepare yourselves some hard boiled eggs to get the much-desired protein.
