My family likes all kinds of eggs. They are a healthy, economical (read frugal) protein source, and just a classic for breakfast!
When times are busy, I find that hard boiling a dozen eggs is a great morning/lunch timesaver for me. I boil them then when dried off I place them back in their carton for storage in the fridge. The hubs can grab a couple in the morning and give them a quick peel for breakfast, or I can pack them along in the kids lunches. Sometimes I even get fancy and make egg salad.
Although I love the fact that the egg cartons are easily stacked and fit well in the fridge, it can get confusing though when you have cartons of both hard boiled and raw eggs in there.
Permanent markers to the rescue. Just mark each hard boiled egg in an obvious way so that no one grabs a raw egg accidentally to “peel” thinking they are going to have a quick and easy breakfast and winding up with a mess.
I like to have a little fun with my markings. The added benefit is it makes the hard boiled eggs even more fun for the kids. My hubs just shakes his head:
There you have it, a quick easy and frugal way to keep your hard-boiled eggs straight!
