Baked Instead Of Boiled

Just in time for Easter... I was able to try out baking eggs instead of boiling them. Something I found on Pinterest. Found here. I loved how they turned out! They peeled perfectly. I only had two slightly cracked eggs. Everyone should definitely give this a try. I actually prefer this method over boiling my eggs now!

Here is how you make them.

1st - place the eggs on the center rack parallel (as shown) with a cookie sheet underneath incase an egg cracks and oozes. I have not had one make a mess on me yet, but better to be safe then sorry!

2nd - Preheat the oven to 325 degrees and bake for 30 minutes. *Eggs go into the oven before you preheat so they will cook slowly*

3rd - place the eggs in a bowl of ice water when done to cool down. Wait about 10 minutes before peeling them. After you peel them place them back in the water to continue cooling.

Done! You should have some perfectly hard baked eggs. Try it, I dare you!

Aubri is my huge fan of eggs at home! I don't have to worry about them going to waste...

You can use the baked method of eggs to make Deviled Eggs, Egg Salad Sandwiches (must see our awesome recipe HERE!), or decorate them with the kids for Easter! Basically, whatever you use boiled eggs for, you do the same with these baked ones!

My adorable Aubs had a great time decorating them for Easter!

  1. So glad you posted this, I am going to try it. we hope you guys have a great Easter.

  2. Thanks Emily! Let us know how you like it!

  3. just a suggestion- I have seen several things on pinterest where they bake the eggs in muffin tins- makes sense so there isn't any way egg would spill on your oven racks-

  4. What a great idea!! I love to make deviled eggs and usually a quantity to feed several. I will try this!!
