These hard boiled eggs have a drizzling of extra virgin olive oil atop. The warmth of the eggs delivers the fragrance of the oil to your palate. Served with some crunchy Italian bread, the flavor of the olive oil brings an uncommon taste to the common egg. It's a new dimension for an already beloved breakfast meal.
I began adding olive oil to my eggs when removing the yolks. I felt it gave them more substance. I quickly found the flavor to be rich and delightful and add it to my eggs all the time now, even when the yolks are in. Try this healthy Italian spin on the hard boiled egg. You too will have a new love for them.
