Check this out! You can make perfect hard boiled eggs in the oven! Who knew!?! No water required! All you need is your eggs, a muffin pan and a 325 degree oven.I just saw a Food Network video on how to make these. You simply place your eggs in the muffin pan, put the pan in a 325 degree oven and bake for 30 minutes. When the cooking is done, you remove them from the oven and put your eggs in a bowl of ice water. Shocking the eggs in the ice water will cool them and make them easier to peel.
Now, I love my peeps at the Food Network, but I wouldn’t be a responsible, respectable food blogger if I didn’t try this myself. I HAD to know that it actually worked. Plus, I love me a good science experiment!
I didn’t have an entire dozen eggs on hand (OK, I only had 4!), so I only cooked 2. I didn’t want my daughter to be in a bad mood if she couldn’t make her fried egg sandwich on her spring break morning!
So how did it work, you ask? Perfectly! As you can see from the picture below, the egg yolk is perfectly cooked, no green ring or undercooked center! Voila! Now you have eggs for eating, egg salad, or deviled eggs. Easy peasy!!!
