Good news if you’re feeling dumb as ass. You’re not alone. There are plenty of us. A bunch of us can’t even hard boil an egg.
A while back I posted about my pathetic attempt to hard-boil a batch of eggs. They turned out runny and inedible, but I didn’t want to waste them. So I tried to find out if I could just pretend like I’d never stopped cooking them and throw them back on the stove to boil some more.
So far today, I’ve gotten 20 hits from people seeking to find out if you can reboil a half-cooked egg. I’m sorry. I just have to laugh. Especially when I think about the Easter Bunny leaving a bunch of brightly colored yet disgustingly unappetizing eggs. Because I’m warning you all now, you CAN harden up those eggs. But plan to make egg salad with them. My egg salad did turn out fine, but I just about gagged biting into the strange texture of my double-boiled egg.
Happy Easter-egg hunting. Hope your yolks aren’t runny!
