Hard Cooked Eggs IN the Oven! & Egg-in-a-Hole Recipe


IF you plan on trying to make your own Vanilla for this Christmas baking season, be sure to check it out here again ~ I have made an update to the original recipe! Thanks!

Do you like hard-boiled eggs? Do you question yourself EVERY time about how to boil them? Do you call your sis-in-law EVERY time you need to boil them to see how SHE does it? Do you get over cooked ~ under cooked ~ or green centered eggs when you boil them? Yes, yes, yes, yes…… I saw this “recipe” at food.com. Gave it a go. I will not boil eggs again.

It may take a time or too for you and your eggs and your oven to get it. The 1st time I made them my eggs had brown spots near the end of the baking time, it was fine, they were still nice and yellow and cooked nice in the center.  Some of the brown soaked through to the egg white, still it was fine. I just knew I had baked a bit to long. IF that happens to you, don’t panic, just peel and eat ~ don’t expect any awards for beautifulest egg however.  The next time, they were just right.  (Mine cook just right in 25 minutes.) Remember that all ovens cook differently, so your may need to adjust the baking time according to your oven. Enjoy!

* Week old eggs are MUCH easier to peel then fresh  bought eggs. So grab your older eggs when you want Hard Boiled or Cooked Eggs!

Hard Cooked Eggs IN the Oven! 
muffin tin (s)
large bowl of ice water

Put as many eggs as you need in muffin tins. Bake @ 325° for 25-30 minutes. (START with 30 maybe, the first time you make them, to ensure they are cooked all the way through and then go from there ~ maybe cooking less the next time IF needed.) Take out of oven and place eggs  in ice water, till cooled all they way. Peel and enjoy or store in fridge (unpeeled) for a few days. Enjoy!
