My children are 1/2 Tongan and love crab. I needed to come up with something they would enjoy on our Buffet table on Holidays, our pic-nics, etc. This is it; and both they, all of our extended family and friends love it too. I have been asked numerous times for this recipe (even by the Tongan half of my family!)

How To Make The Perfect Hard Boiled Egg Recipe

How to Make the Perfect Hard Boiled Egg

Kitchen Crew @JustaPinch

They pack protein into a salad, are a fantastic on-the-go breakfast and a necessity for making deviled eggs. Hard boiled eggs are fantastic but are a bit intimidating to cooks....
