Oven Hard Boiled Eggs

Dana and I are getting ready for Easter and we wanted to dye some eggs.  Then we discovered that it was going to take a huge pan to hard boil all of the eggs that we wanted to dye.  So we looked for an alternative.  It just so happens that this alternative is the easiest way ever to hard boil an egg.   The best part is that it takes the boiling right out of the equation.  Place the eggs in some muffin pans and you are good to go.

Hard Boiling Eggs in the Oven

Preheat the oven to 325 degree Fahrenheit.

Place into a muffin pan

Place each egg into a cup of a muffin pan.

Bake for 30 minutes.

Chill

Immediately remove the eggs and place into a ice bath.  Chill for 10 minutes and you are done.

Peel

Quite possibly the easiest and most fool proof way to hard boil large eggs.

Perfectly cooked

 

These are the easiest hard boiled eggs that I have ever peeled.  The peel comes right off.  Super simple!

Possible Issue When Dyeing Eggs

The one issue when dyeing the eggs is that the eggs released some microscopic residue out of the shell during baking, which left some brown spots.  The cure is to gently wipe the eggs while they are in the ice bath.  A little water scrub cured this issue.  The eggs looked nice and bright white.

  1. That is a GREAT trick! Never heard of this before. Not only good for easter eggs but also when making a ton of egg salad, potato salad, etc.
