Time-saving Tip: The Quick Way to Chop Eggs

I used to chop up my boiled eggs one at a time, either with a knife or an egg-slicer. Now I’ve come up with an easier method, and it’s so quick I couldn’t believe it the first time I tried it.

The trick? Use a pastry blender! You know, one of those little gadgets that you drag out during the holidays to use for cutting shorting into flour for a pie.

If you don’t make pies you might not own a pastry blender.   If you do, give it a try the next time you need to chop eggs.  And if you don’t, but have a large family who love egg salad sandwiches, it might be worth investing in this great little tool just for the eggs!

It took me longer to take these pictures than to chop up the whole bowlful of eggs.  So I can smile at all the time I saved, and my kids will smile when they see that they get egg salad sandwiches in their lunches.  I hope this brings you a smile, too!
