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?
