Heart-Shaped Hard-Boiled Eggs: Send Some Love!

By brooklynsupper |

Sending your kid off to school with a great packed lunch feels good. It’s a small way to show them some love during their day, and a great way to steer them towards healthy eating choices. One terrific option for a lunch time treat is a protein-rich hard-boiled egg, especially a heart-shaped hard-boiled egg. These little cuties will brighten any lunch and let your little one know you are thinking about them even while they’re away.

You can make these adorable eggs in about 10 minutes.

For an easy-peasy tutorial for perfect heart-shaped eggs, head over to the terrific bento blog Anna the Red here.

Since a perfectly peeled hard-boiled egg is essential, follow these easy steps:

1. Place the eggs in cold water, add 3 tablespoons of salt, bring to a boil, cover, remove from heat, and let stand for 6 – 8 minutes.

2. Dip eggs into ice water for a minute.

3. Carefully peel.

    I’m glad you made these heart shaped eggs! Wasn’t it ridiculously easy to make them and also adorable at the same time?? Is it okay if I posted it on the “your food” page on my blog linking back to this page? Let me know if you’re okay with it. :)

    For instructions on the heart mold head over to Anna the Red’s site (the link appears above in blue). My instructions are to ensure easy peeling.
