I had seen several posts floating around the internet that claimed you could cook hard boiled eggs in the oven. This sounded too simple and too good to be true, so of course I had to give it a try.
This past weekend, I was preparing for Easter dinner and was planning to make Deviled Eggs. This seemed like the perfect opportunity to try out this technique. Here is how it works:
Hard Boiled Eggs in the Oven
- Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.
- Place eggs into a mini muffin tin to keep them from rolling around.
- Place the eggs into the oven for 28 minutes.
- Remove the eggs and immediately place them in a bowl of ice water.
- Peel and prepare.
Sounds easy right? Well, I was skeptical.
I placed my eggs into a mini muffin tin. The holes were just the right size to keep the eggs from rollin all around.
As soon as the timer went off, I plunged all of my eggs into ice water. This stops the cooking process so the eggs don’t overcook and become rubbery.
Well the eggs appeared to cook well but the true test would come with the peeling. We raise our own chickens so all of my eggs were less than a week old. Farm fresh eggs are notorious for being impossible to peel. These eggs were like a dream! They peels just slid right off and the yolk were cooked to a golden fluffy perfection!
So the verdict is final. Eggs can be hard boiled in the oven!
