Ham & Egging It

Easter EggsThe phrase "ham and egging" is defined as "producing a good overall result by having different team members perform well at different times." When it comes to the Easter table – from baskets of hard-boiled eggs to glazed hams – these seasonal staples definitely play critical roles! We’re spotlighting some of our favorite recipes for both and offering tips for ensuring hard-boiled egg success.

Tips for perfect hard-boiled eggs:

  • Use eggs that are several days old to ensure they are easy to peel.
  • Put the eggs in a single layer in a saucepan, covered with 2" of cold water.
  • Add a tablespoon of vinegar to prevent cracking and leaking and to keep yolks bright yellow.
  • Bring the eggs to a boil over high heat.
  • As soon as the water starts to boil, remove the pan from the heat, cover and let sit for 12 minutes.
  • Remove the eggs from the hot water and cool completely in a bowl of ice water.
  • Store unpeeled eggs in a covered container in the refrigerator up to 5 days (peeled eggs can be stored up to 2 days).
