How to bake hard boiled eggs in the oven

Here is what you do, it’s super simple:

  • Place eggs in muffin pans. I can typically fit 24 eggs in my oven to bake at a time. Unless I am boiling multiple pots for water for eggs, this isn’t happening on my stove top.
  • Once eggs are in the muffin pans, place in oven and bake on 325 – 350 degrees. My oven runs a little hot, so I keep it around 325 degrees.
  • Remove after 30 minutes.
  • Place in eggs in a bowl of cold water.
  • Your eggs may come out with a small brown spot. With the cold water, this typically disappears.

Hot Eggs in a Bowl of Cold Water

Yes, the egg hack to de-shell an egg or peel an egg is to put the hot eggs into a bowl of cold water. I usually throw ice into a big bowl of water, then place your baked eggs right out of the oven into the bowl of ice cold water. You will want to let the eggs sit for around 10 minutes.

After the hard boiled eggs (or baked eggs – in this case) have been in the ice cold water for 10 minutes – you can then EASILY peel the eggs. No egg peel sticking with this trick!

YES! Just like hard boiled eggs - we make egg salad with a few of them (typically the kids crack a few while dyeing)
