First let me preface this with the fact that I have tried a
hundred dozen different ways to get the elusive ‘perfect’ hard boiled egg and they are either undercooked – which grosses me out. OR they are so hard to peel the Fatkid cries about it and makes me do it for him – plus you always lose a ton of the white when they are hard to peel.
So I pinned this the other day and decided to try it last night. BAKED EGGS! Who knew?? Seriously though – who knew this and hadn’t told me yet???
I put my eggs in a muffin tin and preheat the oven to 325. I baked them for 30 minutes and then took one out, cooled it in water really quick and tested it. The yolk was still a little underdone (for me) so I put them back in for 5 more minutes – 35 total. I would suggest starting at 25 minutes and then cooling one off and testing it.
Once they are done – take them out and put them in a bowl of really cold water – I put ice in mine. This stops them from over cooking and helps them peel better.
The Fatkid tried one right away and it. was. perfect! Yay it peeled super easy and although there are little brown spots on the white from baking (don’t be surprised by this) they tasted perfect.
I also made some more balsamic dijon chicken with broccoli. This time I only used 1 tbsp coconut oil, 1/2 cup balsamic, 2 heaping tbsp of dijon mustard, basil, thyme and pepper. I didn’t feel like chopping anything and it turned out awesome again.
I mixed it with this awesome stuff I just tried for the first time – delis! And it only takes 90
minutes seconds – oops! – in the microwave – I was I super lazy exhausted last night and did not want to be up all night cooking.
And some quinoa bakes! It’s been a while since I have made these but I am getting sick of shakes post workout and these are the perfect combo of carbs and protein. This is obv. pre oven.
I have been not into meat as my protein at all lately – I think it’s because it’s 110 every day right now but for whatever reason I can have one or two bites and then want to yack.
So instead I made egg salad and tuna salad today. I also brought the balsamic chicken which I’m hoping will be okay because the balsamic flavor is so yummy I won’t notice that it’s chicken. I put spinach, baby tomatoes, cucumber and carrots in one large tupperware to munch on and brought an avocado and an apple too.
**Addition – for my egg salad I just use dijon mustard and pepper – for the tuna I use the same and add a lot of lemon juice.**
