The lonely yolk makes another appearance.

First, let me say, Little Guy LOVES hard boiled eggs in his lunch. It’s one of his favorites. And as a mom of a kid who doesn’t like sandwiches, it’s a life saver. It took me a few years to convince him the yolks were good enough to eat and I’m happy I got him half way there, but one day I hope to see no more lonely yolk in his lunch box. :)

    I agree! BUt I have found if you cook them right they are creamy! 12-13 minute max after that they get dry and after 15 they get the green effect and he won't touch them. lol Reply

    I didn't know you could cook them less than 20 minutes, or that it would change the yolk consistency, thank you! My boys love hard boiled eggs and I keep them in the fridge for snacks, I'll start doing the lesser cook time! Reply
