Using avocado in place of the mayo in egg salad. It's been done before. And it's really not that complicated. Healthy fats, improved taste, what's not to love?
But I have a great little trick that goes with it, passed down from my grandmother.
Do you hate hard-boiling/peeling eggs? It's the guessing game, right? Is it done? Is it overcooked? Yes, I know, there are tips and tricks out the wazoo (look up hard-boiled egg on Pinterest). But it's still sort of a shot in the dark, right? And then, and then, you have to peel them. Ugh.
Well fret no more. If you need chopped hard-boiled eggs for a recipe, you are not going to actually hard-boil them. You are going to poach them in a poached egg pan. Like in this one on Amazon.
No mess, no fuss.
