Super Cute Hard Boiled Eggs

Eggs are one of the most versatile ingredients in the universe. And I don't know about your house, but eggs are a total workhorse at mine. Breakfast, lunch, dinner, whatever. If I can't think of what I want to eat or cook - eggs it is! [caption id="attachment_3649" align="aligncenter" width="426" caption="Eggs, glorious eggs!"] [/caption] And I'm a total sucker for hard boiled eggs. In salads, on their own with buttery toast, in sandwiches, stirred into curry, on top of rice...you get the idea! That's why when I found these egg molds in my local Asian grocery store, they had to be mine. Sure, they are designed for kids (and mine loves them!) but I'm also tickled about how adorable they are. And I love how they  transform a plain old hard boiled egg into something super cute! [caption id="attachment_3650" align="aligncenter" width="400" caption="So adorable! "] [/caption] Here's how: Boil your eggs (large work best) to desired yolk consistency. This can range from 3 to 8 minutes. Then peel while still hot. This is the trickiest part. When I can't stand to hold them any longer because they're too hot I give them a quick run under cold water. Then, open the mold. [caption id="attachment_3654" align="aligncenter" width="400" caption="Open sesame."] [/caption] Insert egg.

[caption id="attachment_3652" align="aligncenter" width="400" caption="Closing time"] [/caption] Let stand in cold water for 5 minutes to set the pattern and cool the egg enough to eat. Open, and sigh at how darned cute it is. Then eat it, of course!
