STUFFED EGGS AND A COOL WAY TO MAKE HARD BOILED EGGS



HARD-BOILED EGGS AND STUFFED EGGS

   You can pipe the mixture into the egg whites to get a better presentation. For the roast pork recipe, Go Here.

6 large eggs
hot water 

Place eggs in a large saucepan. Cover them with cool water by 1 inch. Cover with a lid and bring water to a boil over high heat; when the water has reached a boil, set the timer for the desired time. Boil for 6 - 7 minutes over medium-high heat for perfect hard-boiled eggs.
Variation:  Stuffed Eggs:  Cut hard-boiled eggs in half and remove yolks. In medium bowl, mash together with 1/4 cup (50 mL) mayonnaise, 1 tsp (5 mL) prepared mustard, 1/2 tsp (2 mL) hot pepper sauce and 1/4 tsp (1 mL) salt.  Fill whites with mixture.  Cover eggs and refrigerate until ready to serve. 
Yield:  12 servings.  (0.4 g Carbs).

Vary the filling for Stuffed eggs above by adding 3 tbsp (45 mL) crumbled, crisp-fried bacon or 3 tbsp (45 mL) chopped ham or 2 tbsp (25 mL) chopped green onion or chives.


Helpful Hints:  Eggs are a low-carb dieter’s best friend, as they are low in carbohydrates, and they tend to digest slowly, warding off hunger for hours.  To help you stay on track, keep some in the refrigerator for weak moments, when the snacking urge strikes.
