Save yourself some time by making your stove work overtime. When boiling some chick peas for making hummus I added red potatoes and eggs to hard boil as well as using the pot to steam green beans. This way I was was able to make hummus and cook some of the ingredients I needed for a Nicoise salad!
Before boiling your eggs, wrap the outer skin from an onion around the egg. You can use red or yellow onions. Next wrap the egg and onion skin in paper towel. Secure with a rubber band. Boil eggs as normal. This also works well if you want to remember which eggs in your fridge are hard boiled.
