Hard-Cooked Eggs

I wanted to type out “hard boiled eggs” for the title at first, but these Hard-Cooked Eggs are not boiled. They’re BAKED in the oven! I found the recipe on Pinterest (so addicting!) which originated from Alton Brown. I had to see if it works, and YES, they most certainly do. Cooked perfectly and the egg yolks came out all yellow – no outer green coloring. This is a great time saver if you have to make more than a dozen eggs.

Here are the instructions (for 1-4 dozen eggs):

  1. DO NOT PRE-HEAT YOUR OVEN.
  2. Position the oven racks in the center of the oven.
  3. Place the eggs on the racks.
  4. Place a baking sheet pan in the bottom of the oven (just in case an egg breaks).
  5. Set the oven to 325˚F and bake for 30 minutes.
  6. When the eggs are done, fill a large bowl with ice water and transfer the eggs with a pair of tongs and an oven mitt into the bowl.
  7. Peel the eggs as soon as they’re cool enough to handle (about 10 minutes), then return them to the ice water to thoroughly chill.

Use for egg salad sandwiches or salads, or deviled eggs!
