Baked ‘Hard Boiled’ Eggs

Hard boiled eggs are delicious. They are a great as an on-the-go snack or chopped up in a salad. Eggs are also a great way to add protein to your diet and they fall into the acceptable column for both Paleo and 21 Day Fix.

But you know what isn’t awesome?

A huge pot of boiling water on the stove while 3 kids spin around singing/dancing/fighting and try to climb on you. There is something

Enter the hard boiled egg…cooked in the oven! This is SO EASY you will never cook your eggs on top of the stove again.

But, how?!

  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees
  2. Put eggs in cupcake/muffin tins and put them in the oven. SAVE YOUR EGG CONTAINER! Why get rid of this perfect storage spot for your finished product? Just make sure that the containers are clearly labeled hard boiled vs raw.Eggs in Oven
  3. Set your timer for 25 minutes then walk away. I have noticed that my kids do not need shoo’d away from a hot oven nearly as much as an open flame.
  4. Take the eggs out when your timer goes off. See how they have all sorts of spots on them? Don’t worry about that. It is from the liquid coming out of the eggs while they are baking and it sort of cooks on the shell. Those spots will be history in a minute. Speckled Eggs
  5. CAREFULLY move the eggs from the cupcake tins to a big bowl of ice water for 10 minutes or until they have cooled completely. Eggs
  6. Return the eggs to their original (and clearly marked) container for storage before popping them in the refrigerator.

 

And that’s it!

    BRILLIANT!! I just love this idea. I hate having boiling water on the stove when there’s a busy toddler about!

    This is such a good idea. What’s nice is that you don’t have to get an enormous pot for a whole dozen eggs… just a muffin tin. I’m really going to have to give this one a shot!

    I ate at this Japanese restaurant that served kind of a brown (soy sauce) hard boiled egg and it was amazing so I eat it this way all the time. It’s a nice salty flavor, but not overpoweringly so. You shell your eggs and then put them in a pot and cover them with soy sauce and let them simmer for a few minutes, then pop them in the fridge until they’re cold. Delicious!
