“There is nothing romantic about a hard boiled egg—that is, unless you shape it into a heart,” says F&W’s Justin Chapple. The latest tip from our Mad Genius will add some love to your salads, sandwiches, bento boxes and anything else that can be improved by putting an (adorable) egg on it.
It must be stated that this Mad Genius Tip requires some artsy-craftsy effort, so be prepared. The first thing you’ll need is a stash of hard-boiled eggs (check out Jacques Pepin’s tips for perfect boiling and Justin’s hack for easy peeling).

You’ll also need an empty quart-sized milk carton, top and bottom removed; cut down the side so that you are left with a rectangular section of cardboard. Cut this in half again (along one of the creases) and fold using Justin’s method until you’ve MacGyvered a v-shaped “mold.” Once you’re satisfied, place a peeled, hard-boiled egg on its side in the trough of the folded paper.
