You can’t beat eggs when it comes to nutrition. These small white orbs are packed with protein and good-for-you fat. And if you're looking for a low carb food, it doesn’t get better than eggs with zero carbohydrates. What’s also great about eggs is that they can be prepared in so many ways and used in so many different recipes whether you are baking a dessert or cooking a casserole. Probably the easiest way to make and eat eggs is to hard-boil them. You can make a whole carton of them ahead of time which saves a lot of time when you need something quick and on the go.
But if eating hardboiled eggs alone is getting old, here are six ways to use them that will never leave you feeling bored or unsatisfied:
