Eggs, coffee, bacon, butter, repeat… by day 4 on cleanse you’re probably tired of eggs. Am I right? My advice is switch up the way you cook them. Grab a dozen eggs and start by hard boiling them. I usually bring them to a boil, remove them from the heat, and let them sit covered for 10-12 minutes. I like the yolk a little softer. Once you remove from the heat, place them in an ice bath… basically a bowl of ice water… until room temperature and peel them. I’ve heard so many different ways to get the shell off easily but the reality is you win some, you lose some. Now, once your eggs are peeled, what do you do with them.
First you can eat them hard boiled, duh.
Next, if you ended up with a bunch of hard boiled eggs that look like they’ve really been through it, you can make Egg Salad.
3 hardboiled eggs, smashed
1/4c Sir Kensington’s Mayonnaise
1tsp Dijon mustard (check ingredients; no sugar Or preservatives)
Pepper to taste
Mix all ingredients together. Serve in a lettuce wrap with bacon and tomatoes. YUM
Lastly, and my favorite for summer BBQs is Deviled Eggs. These measurements are slightly off because I usually just go by sight. If you need a little more mayo or Dijon, go ahead and add it. My yolks are usually a little softer which leads to a creamier texture.
12 hardboiled eggs sliced in half lengthwise
1tbsp Sir Kensington mayo
1tbsp Dijon mustard (no sugar no preservatives)
Pepper to taste
Paprika for sprinkling
Remove the yolk from the egg and add to a bowl. Add mayo, Dijon and pepper. Smash together until there are no lumps. I like to add the mixture to a piping bag but you can also use a plastic bag and cut the corner off.
Pipe the mixture into the egg and sprinkle with paprika. Top with bacon, dill pickle, red pepper flakes, fresh dill or pepper. These have been a party favorite and nobody knows they’re clean eating.
