  1. Eggs are delicate darlings, boiled or not! They need to be handled well or else they will break and with that they will break your heart. I have prepared this dish twice and the eggs have behaved. 🙂 And of course, the efforts paid off as people like it very much. Thanks for posting this wonderful recipe.
