Hoppy Easter Weekend!
Where are my vegetarian bunnies at?!
Yesterday I went to an Easter egg dying party at my friend Natalie’s house, so I was in charge of prepping some eggs for decorating. I decided to hard boil them so they could be snacked on even after decorating!
Most of the time I dread hard boiling eggs because I always manage to mess them up. After I finally get the water boiling and then deal with the whole stove on, lid off, stove off, lid on situation… I’ve totally over cooked them. Not to mention they’re so hard to peel!
Well, none of that anymore!!! By hard “boiling” eggs in the oven, there is no more guessing or work involved and you will get the perfect cooked egg that is seriously easy to peel every time. I’m not joking, the shell will slide right off! If you’re thinking of dying some Easter eggs this weekend or want to hard boil eggs for salads and snacks, definitely give this a try. It’s fool proof!
It’s literally a game changer. Just pop the eggs in the oven for 30 minutes, then into a bowl of ice water to cool. That’s it!
How To Hard Boil Eggs In the Oven
What you need:
1 dozen eggs
Large mixing bowl of ice water
1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
2. Place 1 egg in each muffin cup.
3. Bake on middle rack for 30 minutes.
4. Carefully place baked eggs in a large bowl filled with ice water until completely cooled, about 10 minutes. This will stop the cooking process.
*DO A TEST RUN with a couple of eggs until you figure out the perfect cooking temp/time. Some ovens run a little hotter or cooler than normal, so if any of your eggs crack, you can reduce the cooking time by a minute or so.

I’ve these oven boiled eggs around, it looks easier then boiling, just a little more time consuming. HaPpy EaStEr

I totally wanted this to work for me because those pics look great. But it didn’t….the shells popped off in the oven (scared the crap out of me…) and they didn’t fully cook in the middle. I was really looking forward to my eggs!
