How to Make Hard Cooked Eggs in the Oven

If you’ve ever wondered how to make hard cooked eggs in the oven, just follow these 4 easy steps. You’ll get the perfect eggs every time that are easy to peel and don’t have that yucky grey/green ring around the yolk. Because oven temperatures and taste preferences vary, make sure to test bake some eggs in the oven to find the perfect temp and time for you. (I like baking at 350 for 23 minutes but the girls like the yolks a little more done so I usually bake for 25 minutes.)

  1. Bake Eggs In the Oven

Place eggs in a dry muffin tin in a preheated oven. I vary between 325 degrees and 350 degrees but it will be important for you to find the best temperature based on the doneness you prefer. I bake at either 350 degrees for 25 minutes or 325 degrees for 30 minutes. Note that you do not need to fill up the muffin cups with water or spray with cooking spray.


2. Ice Bath

Once eggs have baked, transfer them to a bowl of ice water for 10 minutes. This will stop the cooking process and prevent the eggs from overcooking. Note that the eggs may have brown spots on the shell after baking. Also, the egg may have a small brown spot where it set in the pan.


3. Peel

Crack one of the eggs gently on the counter on gently peel off. You’ll be amazed how easily the shell peels off!


4. Enjoy!

Enjoy these eggs as is, chopped over a salad, sliced onto toast, deviled, or whichever way you prefer. One thing is for sure though, you’ll never go back to the water boiling method again!
