Chopping Hard boiled eggs the easy way!

If there's one thing I hate doing it's chopping eggs. They get all over my fingers if I cut them by hand, or they turn to mush in my chopper. Yuck! A few years back I came up with a much better solution and all I needed was a fork!

All I do is smash them with a fork. How easy is that? Start out with hard boiled eggs, cut in half lengthwise. Simply press the tines of a fork through the egg one way, then go back and do it again the other way.

This is great for when you need smaller pieces when you're making sandwich salads like tuna or chicken. You can use a serving fork if you want larger pieces, but I prefer a regular fork. Best of all, my hands stay clean! How awesome is that?

Have a great weekend!

  2. Great idea, especially cut them first, I love egg salad, but it takes forever to the eggs all chopped up the way I like them. Thanks for sharing on Tuesdays With a Twist.

    1. I adapted this idea from a chef who just shoved boiled eggs through a small square patterned cooling rack. SO much easier when doing a huge batch!
