Just going to put this out there into the world.
This might be the easiest recipe I have ever made. Easier than any boiled egg recipes you’ve ever made.
Maybe even easier than the low carb keto mug cake and I thought that recipe was the peak of my easy-making-recipe-ness.
Honestly, wasn’t even going to post this recipe but then Mr. FFF was like WHY WOULD YOU NOT? It’s so good, people like easy recipes and I bet they need hard boiled egg snack ideas.

How to make Had Boiled Eggs for this Hard Boiled Egg Snack
If you do some Googling, you will find a ton of articles on how to hard boil an egg but this is how I do it:
Put your eggs in a VERY large pot and fill so the eggs are covered by about 2 inches. If you are only using 3-4 eggs, you only need to cover them by about one inch
Place the pot on high heat on your stove and bring to a boil. Once boiling, turn off the heat and cover the pot with a lid but do not remove it from the heat.
Let the pot stand on the stove for for 10-12 minutes.
After time is up, drain the hot water and fill with ice-cold water and let stand for 10 minutes.
Then you just have to peel and eat! You’ll like this article on how to peel a hard boiled egg. You’re welcome.
Ways to eat Hard Boiled Eggs
My personal favorite way to eat hard boiled eggs is with this salt and pepita dip (see what I did there 😉 ) I first tried a product like this at a food convention and feel so head-over-taste buds love that I had to try to make it at home.
And now this simple, 3 ingredient dip always sits on the counter and I ALWAYS have it on hand, along with hard boiled eggs because it’s my favorite of all hard boiled egg recipes and is just the perfect snack.
Protein? Check! Fat? Check! I always go protein + fat or protein + carbs to keep it simple at snack time so these hard boiled egg snacks are checking ALL THE BOXES.
