Kitchen Hack: Hard-boil Eggs in the Oven

Hard-boiling eggs in the oven has been going around Pinterest and other blogs, but I wanted to see if it really works.


Normally, I hard-boil my eggs the way I learned from the Better Homes and Gardens cookbook, because I could never remember how my mom did it.

  • Cover eggs in a pot with cold water by 1″
  • Put over medium-high heat and bring to a boil
  • Remove from heat
  • Cover and let sit for 15 minutes
  • Run under cold water

This is how you can supposedly bake eggs.

  • Preheat oven to 325˚
  • Put eggs in a muffin tin (so they don’t roll around)
  • Bake for 30 minutes
  • Run under cold water




The verdict?

Way less work! The only real downside is that in the summer, you’d be turning on the oven. My egg did have a funny burned spot on the bottom, but I just picked it off since it was really shallow.


No more watching the pot and waiting for it to boil. Yay!
