pinterest find: baking hard “boiled” eggs

When meal prepping for the week ahead, sometimes it involves boiling a TON of hard boiled eggs. I stumbled across a tip on Pinterest that I had to try — BAKING your hard boiled eggs! Why bother, you may ask? Well, this tip guaranteed no broken eggs. When I boil about a dozen eggs I usually end up with two or three broken, no matter what I try! I’m also ridiculously bad at peeling eggs, so if this made it easier, I thought, why not try it?

Verdict: pinterest fail

This took way longer than boiling eggs, and I still ended up with broken ones! They weren’t easier to peel at all. And it took about 45 minutes — yes I could do other things while they baked, but still. I think I’ll stick to my traditional boiling.

Have you ever tried this before? What are some ways you know of to perfect the hard boiled egg?

  1. Do you “shock” the shells? Place them gently in boiling water. Boil for desired time and then you have to “shock” them with cold water – dump them all into a colandar or into a bowl and run cold water over them. Makes the shells almost slip right ofd with very little effort
