Yes, hard boiled eggs are good. But they’re better fried in butter.
Hard boiled eggs are a great snack option or simple meal, but they can get old quite quickly. Like any form of eggs though, they also get elevated with a little added butter. It gives them a rich, nutty flavor that can be complemented with your favorite seasonings.
There’s nothing overly complex here. You take some pre-boiled eggs, hard or soft, and add them to a hot pan with a little butter or ghee. I actually prefer ghee as it doesn’t burn as quickly so you can fry the eggs at a higher temperature for longer to get a crispier outside. Also for added convenience, you can buy already peeled eggs from the store. I personally like to go this route to save time, but they are a little more expensive. They work great though and are warmed through by the cooking process.
You can also cut the eggs in half before frying to give the yolks some of that crispy butter love. But for a truly decadent option, try soft boiling your eggs prior to frying to get that warm, runny, delicious bowl of goodness. So give these fried hard boiled eggs a try, you might surprise yourself.
