How to perfectly cook hard boiled eggs…
If eggs are boiled too long then they get that ugly green-gray ring around the yolk. That is the sulfuric acid in the eggs that increases it’s stench when exposed to heat. We want to avoid the rotten egg smell as much as possible and we want to have easy peeling eggs too! My go-to gal for perfection is Ms. Martha Stewart! She suggests starting with eggs that are a bit old. Super fresh eggs will not peel as easily.
- Place a dozen eggs in a pot and cover with one inch of cold water.
- I add a teaspoon of salt to the water.
- Bring up to a rolling boil on high, remove from heat, cover, and allow to sit for 15 minutes.
- After the 15 minutes is up, remove eggs and place them in ice cold water. Allow the eggs to cool.
- Gently tap eggs on a counter to break up the shells and peel. The peels should come off easily and you shouldn’t have a dark ring around your yolks! Perfection!
How to make your eggs look like brown footballs-
TIP: I recommend making these the same day you plan on serving them. The color of the footballs will fade as time goes on. In a bowl or pot, add 1/2 teaspoon of brown icing color to 2 inches of hot water. Mix to dissolve. Gently add the peeled eggs to the brown colored water an shake the pot to coat the eggs. Allow them to sit for at least 5 minutes, shaking a few times.
Drain the eggs and you are left with the most amazing brown eggs you’ve ever seen! They are beautiful and look like chocolate! Slice each egg in half and keep the top and bottom close to each other (you’ll need to put them back together in a bit). With a spoon, gently scoop out each yolk into a bowl. Look at those perfectly cooked eggs! Woo-hoo!!!
To make the Bacon & Cheese Super Bowl Egg Filling:
6 hard boiled egg yolks (You’ll only need 6 of your 12 yolks)
1/4 cup mayo
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
1 dash of hot sauce
1/8 teaspoon onion powder
1/3 cup crispy crumbled bacon
1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
2 Tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
salt & pepper to taste
Combine all ingredients until well combined.
To assemble your football eggs, scoop one heaping teaspoon of bacon and cheese mixture into one half of an egg and place the matching egg half of top. Repeat, stuffing all the eggs. To make the white laces on top of each football egg, place some sour cream into a plastic baggie. Snip a very small amount off one corner and pipe the sour cream laces on the footballs.
Serve in a egg dish or on a plate lined with greens.
Bacon and Cheese Stuffed Super Bowl Eggs will be the hit of the party, so be sure to make enough!
Are you ready for some football?!?!
