These perfectly easy hard boiled eggs are exactly that: easy and perfect!! We added boiled eggs to our weekly meal prep a couple years ago when my husband and I started making cobb salads for lunch every day. We found that having all of our ingredients prepared in advance for the coming week made healthy eating so much more doable! Thus, meal prep Sunday became a family tradition! 🙂
If you’ve ever made hard boiled eggs, you probably know that timing is everything! Boil too long, you’ll have tough and discolored eggs. Boil too short, you’ll have soft yolks not fully cooked.
We make a dozen hard boiled eggs at the start of each week, while prepping our other salad and dinner ingredients. Our method of perfectly easy hard boiled eggs is very hands-off and perfect for multitasking in the kitchen! I usually start food prep Sunday’s using these steps to cook eggs, proceeding to prep other ingredients while waiting for the water to boil.
Pro tip: Hard boiled eggs also make a great protein rich snack to grab on the go! Whether you’re adding them to a delicious cobb salad or eating them by themselves, having some perfectly easy (to make, peel, and eat!) hard boiled eggs prepared ahead is super convenient!
