Before AND After
Last night I wanted a hardboiled egg on my salad. I don't hardboil eggs often enough to remember the recipe, so I turned to Google. Because Google knows everything.
I typed without looking....how to ardhboil an egg. Google came back with "Sorry lady, we got nothin' "
So I tried again....how to hardboil an egg. This time Google came back with http://howtohardboilanagg.com/ (DO NOT CLICK, THERE IS A DISCLAIMER)
After I hit my head with my palm and said "DUH", I clicked. I expected a paragraph on some egg cooking website. But NO! There is an ENTIRE WEBSITE devoted to how to hardboil an egg. And it's SIX PAGES LONG! Come along with me. Imagine I'm frowning and tilting my head.
Chicken Cartoon on top. Under that is this line..."Hard boiled eggs for your recipes cooked perfectly every time with my simple instructions. Please read our disclaimer before use."
Disclaimer? Yes, an entire page of disclaimer that warned you not to SUE if your computer caught a virus from the website (Thanks for that information, dudes. It's too late now.)
Tips and Advice: A page on how to use old eggs and center the yolks.
Page 1: Ready to get started. All about pans and water.
Page 2: How to cook the eggs.
Page 3: How to cool the eggs.
Page 4: How to crack and peel the eggs.
Page 5: The previously mentioned disclaimer.
This is my Cliffnotes version: Put eggs in pan of cold water. Bring water to a boil.This takes 6 minutes. DO NOT LEAVE THE STOVE! I did because my daughter says I'm a BAMF and I had to go to the bathroom. Move pan off heat. WEAR OVEN GLOVES! Put eggs in bowl of water and ice. Set timer for 30 minutes. Crack and peel the eggs.
See? 1 paragraph. The eggs? Way overcooked with very gummy yolks.
I'm going to read over that disclaimer again to see if I can sue.
