The convenience of store-bought hard-cooked eggs:
This is the first time I'd ever purchased the pre-boiled, pre-peeled eggs, and now that I have, I'm thinking they're a HUGE game changer.
Especially for someone like me who has always had trouble peeling the eggs cleanly after they've been cooked, and I'm not afraid to admit it!
If you haven't tried them before, I'm here to tell you they're an awesome product with no unappetizing grey ring around the yolk that happens if you cook the eggs a fraction of a moment too long.
Been there, done that!
