Hard-boiled eggs are a common way to prepare eggs for a nice breakfast dish, as well as being a key ingredient in egg salad, deviled eggs and Cobb salads. While boiling eggs has been the longtime method to prepare eggs in this fashion, it turns out that steaming eggs can yield the same result as a soft or hard boil. In fact, steaming eggs makes it easier to peel the egg after cooking, as water causes the egg membrane to stick to the egg white. On top of that, steaming allows you to cook the eggs evenly, and there's less risk of the egg breaking than if you just drop an egg in a boiling pot. It's worth trying out at least -- read below to see how it's done!
Hard-boiled eggs are commonly eaten at breakfast, but they have found their way in many other types of cuisine. Cobb salads, egg salad sandwiches, deviled eggs, deep fried eggs and sliced hard-boiled eggs over toast are all common ways to make a delicious treat out of this simple item.
