Awhile back I shared a tip on how to make your hard boiled eggs easier to peel! Then I was looking around on Pinterest and saw that you can make hard boiled eggs in your oven!!
I mean come on now, I thought surely this won’t work that good, or it will change the flavor – it honestly did not seem possible to me!!
I thought ehh why not give this a go, and see how good or terrible it may turn out. So I searched around to find out how to make hard boiled eggs in the oven, and found a great how to at Alaska from Scratch! If you have not checked out this site it is a must, tons of great recipes!!
So how do you cook eggs in the oven you ask?! Well let me show you how easy this truly is!!! NO fear the eggs taste just as good compared to boiling them on the stove top.. SCORE!
Rachael Ray Oven Lovin’ Non-Stick 12-Cup Muffin and Cupcake Pan, Orange
Items You Need:1 dozen eggs bowl of ice water Cupcake Tin
How to Make:
Preheat your oven to 325 degrees. Then take your eggs and place one egg in each muffin tin compartment. Place in a preheated oven and cook for 30 minutes. This seemed the perfect time for my 12 eggs. Now if you do more, or less you might have to adjust the time.
Right before the 30 minutes is up, you will want to grab a large bowl pour some cold water in it, and put some ice cubes in it. Then when the 30 minutes is up, pull the tin out of the oven, and using tongs grab the eggs and place them in the ice cold water bath. Keep them in the water until the eggs are completely cooled!
Once eggs were cooled I put them on a towel and dried them off. You can then use the eggs immediately or store them in the fridge. I ended up putting my eggs in a ziploc and storing in fridge for snacks for lunch and stuff!
I was so impressed with how easy and perfectly this worked!! I will make them like this again for sure! Have you made eggs in the oven before?
Feel free to pin this to save for later use :-)!
you learn something new every day on the internets 🙂 awesome tip, thanks for sharing.

I saw a Pinterest photo of this recently but there were no instructions and I was afraid to try it. Thanks for all the details…so excited to try this at home myself now!
Very welcome Liz!! I was worried it wouldn’t work but surprisingly it worked perfectly!!!
That’s so cool! I wonder if it changes any of the properties of the egg doing it this way vs the other?? Intersting1

I had a couple brown spots on the egg when I peeled them – I just cut the spots off though – they were like little burn spots.
I always break at least one egg using the stove top method. I may have to try this!
What a great idea! My family is constantly asking for deviled eggs, but the egg prep work is always what turns me off from it. I may have to try this out and see how well it works. Thanks for the idea!
Your welcome! It is a lot easier to cook in the oven, I think! I might be doing it more often for sure 🙂

You know, you would think making hard boiled eggs is easy but it’s really know! Thanks for the great directions!
So amazingly clever!!!
And I thought I knew everything when I found out I can cook eggs in the microwave! LOL! This looks easier than cooking hard boiled eggs on stove top.
Awesome! Thank you! I just made some and they came out great. Delicious! Definitely going to Repin if I haven’t already.
Yeah! So glad they worked out for you!
This works great. I did have 4 eggs explode this time around though. Maybe they were in for just a little too long?
