Baked "Hard Boiled" Eggs *Recipe

My sister, Rosie, has been baking her hard boiled eggs since before Easter and she swears they are the best she ever made. At our Easter celebration last spring as he was struggling over the sink to salvage some part of his beautifully colored, hard boiled egg that I had brought, Handy Randy, her Hubs, even told me I have to bake them. I take this on good authority because he is a male foodie. (We don't call it being Picky around the Fam, it is referred to as High Taste, Foodie, or Connoisseur. *wink*)


If there is one pet peeve I have about hard boiled eggs is that you never know if it will peel into perfect eggy goodness or if it will look like a foreign body usually found under the microscope. Not attractive when making deviled eggs. Or when your brother in law is trying to eat one at the Family Easter Dinner....

I thought that it would make a nice easy Christmas week breakfast so I decided to try out the baked "Hard Boiled" Eggs! 
I used a muffin tin as per instructed to hold the eggs in place. I did not preheat the oven. Bake for 30 minutes at 350 degrees. That is it! EASY!


Perfect eggy goodness.

Now time to officially fess up. On my trial run of The Baking Of the Hard Boiled Eggs my eggs did not set.... because my oven has apparently given up its bottom coil. Pesky electric ovens! Before it blew up, the coil not the oven, my eggs were on there way to perfection. I shall retry when we are recoiled and heating again. :)

Let me know how it goes!

Always Blessed,
Gretchen :)

  1. Hard 'Boiled' eggs from the oven? Awesome idea. I have a bad habit of putting the eggs in to boil and walking off and forgetting them. Exploding eggs are not a good thing. I'm going to try this - maybe it will work out better for me. Great idea!

    I came to you from the Wholehearted Home link up! Have a great New Year! :)

  2. So glad you stopped by! The second attempt worked! They peel cleanly. Ahhh sigh... perfect eggy goodness!


  3. That is such an excellent idea!! My electric oven heats sooooo slowly. I had propane gas stoves for years and only and electric for 5 years. I'v never heard of the coil blowing up....guess I have that to look forward to!! Thanks for linking up over at WholeHearted Home this past week. I look forward to reading your blog this coming week.

    1. I have to say I miss a gas stove! Things just cooka nd bake differently! :)
