How do you like your eggs in the morning ? Fried, poached or scrambled? Maybe even, as the old joke says, fertilised ?! Well, whatever your answer to the question was, I bet you didn't say red, yellow, blue or green. You could have though, thanks to The Crackin' Egg Co's new line of ready-to-peel hard boiled eggs !
Imagine serving that up to the kids for breakfast ! It gives a whole new meaning to the Dr Seuss classic Green Eggs and Ham !
Once you've peeled off the shell, you have a regular white egg (otherwise, I think it would have been a bit too weird !).
You may get a few coloured speckles from the protective coating but the packaging clearly says that this is nothing to worry about.
The eggs are very easy to peel and I found them easy to slice too - they fell apart much less than when I cut freshly boiled eggs.
I used mine to dot around the outside of a salad but you could put them in sandwiches, make egg mayonnaise, maybe even use them in the Polish soup Zurek that I made recently. Each pack also comes with a little seasoning sachet - salt & pepper for the blue eggs, sweet chilli for red and sour cream & chive for green.
They work out much more expensive than boiling your own eggs - a pack of 2 costs £1.59 or you can get half a dozen for £3.49 - but if you want to jazz up your kids' lunchboxes or wow friends and family at a picnic, they're ideal.
