From My Daily Column
Dear Heloise: I cut hard-boiled eggs with a pickle slicer! Its blade is a
wavy, "corrugated" design, and the result is what you see in pickles jars all
over the world! Depending on the angle in which you cut them, you can make your
eggs look especially classy. Try cutting half the egg down the long way, then
slide the knife in from the side turning it 90 degrees and meeting the first cut
in the middle.
You are only limited by your imagination! In fact, I use that knife for
all sorts of things: cutting up fruit (melons, bananas, etc) for salads,
potatoes for au gratin dishes, carrots and squash for side dishes--the veggies
look so attractive, everyone always comments on them.
You can find a pickle slicer at hardware stores in the home canning section
and are fairly inexpensive. You might even find them in specialty kitchen

Donna, love your hint! I brought hard cooked eggs, apples, celery and
a dill pickle into the office and tested this hint. Super and so much fun!
Heloise Central loved the eggs!
