Oven-Cooked Hard-Boiled Eggs

I am a failure at boiling eggs the old fashion way.  I always under-cook or over-cook the eggs.  When I was in college, I accidentally left a pot (with an egg in it) boiling for an hour after I forgot about it. The rotten egg + smoke smell was truly intoxicating.  Yuck!

Lucky for me, I've learned a new way to make them in the oven and it's very simple. 

Put the eggs in a muffin tin.  Put the tin into a cold oven and set it for 325º for 35 minutes.  

While you wait, get a large bowl of ice water ready to stop the cooking as soon as the eggs are out of the oven.

When you take them out of the oven, they might be a little speckled.  This is normal & doesn't really affect anything.

Take them out of the muffin cups with some tongs and place them in the ice water.

And that's it!  Let them sit in the water for about 10 minutes, then store them in the fridge.  I wait to peel mine until I'm ready to eat.

Have a great day!
