Have you ever tried to hard boil eggs in the oven before? Holy canolies, it totally works. I was baking some cookies yesterday and after I was finished, I thought I would give it a try.
Here’s how to “hard boil” eggs in the oven.
- Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
- Place eggs in a muffin tin.
- Bake eggs for 30 minutes.
- Remove eggs from the oven and with tongs place them in ice water to cool down.
- Peel eggs. Eat eggs. Yum. Yum.
The only down side to baking eggs in the oven is that they may develop brown spots on the shell from coming in contact with a metal pan. This happened with 9 out of 12 of the eggs.
When I baked the eggs in the oven, they were also much easier to peel than when I have used the traditional method of boiling eggs in water. Plus, the eggs were creamier too.
Pretty cool if you ask me.
