Hard "Boiled" Eggs - In the Oven!

Just in time for Easter, this one has been floating around Pinterest and I thought it was the perfect time to see if it really worked, or was just one of those sneaky Pinterest posts that only look great in the pictures but are impossible to reproduce. Here's how it went..


  • As many eggs as you want
  • muffin tin

Step 1:
Preheat oven to 325

Step 2:

If you have a mini muffin tin, use it, placing eggs on top of the holes so they are sitting sideways (this way your yolk is in the middle of the egg).  If you just have a normal sized muffin tin it will work too, just place your eggs inside, but your yolk might be sitting on the bottom of the egg.

Step 3:
Slowly and carefully put it in the oven, set the timer for exactly 30 minutes, no more, no less.

Step 4:
Get either a bowl or the sink plugged and filled with cold water and some ice cubes.

Step 5:
When the time is up take eggs out immediately and place them one by one gently in the water, leave them there for at least 10 minutes.  A few of mine had some brown spots on them, but these came off in the water.

Step 6:
You are good to go from here, remove the shell if you are using the eggs right away, or chill them in the fridge for later use, including dying them for Easter.

Family Thoughts

As you can see, it worked!  Easy to remove the shell, no cracks and tasted great!


  1. Have never heard of this but what a simple idea and an excellent way to do a whole bunch of eggs at once!

  2. I just pinned this on Pinterest but haven't tried it yet

  3. I have never heard of making hard boiled eggs in the oven before, brilliant if you need to do a lot at once.

  4. This is a wonderful way to cook eggs without any fuss or muss. Really good for painting them for Easter as well. Thank you for sharing.
