Hard Boiled Egg Alternative
Grilled Eggs: Recipe shared via Barbecue! Bible
“Place the raw egg in its shell on the grate over a gentle fire. Grill, turning with tongs, until the egg is cooked through, 3 to 4 minutes per side. (It’s sort of like hard-boiling, but without the water.) In Vietnam, they roast eggs in the shell in this manner, then serve them peeled, quartered, and wrapped in lettuce leaves with chiles, mint, and bean sprouts.” ~ Steven Raichlen, BBQ Bible
