How to Make Perfect Hard-Boiled Eggs in the Oven
Pop those bad boys in the oven for 30 minutes and voila! Perfect hard boiled eggs every time! Not only are they easy to cook but they peel like an absolute DREAM. Have you ever spent FAR too long trying to peel an egg only to be left with a huge mess, the egg in pieces and so much regret? I have. Well peeling these eggs is so easy and fast that the eggs almost slip out of the shell when you use this method. I have pictures below to prove it! In fact, half of my eggs were peeled in a single peel. Yes, the entire shell was in one piece… I think I just heard the heavens open and angels singing.
How to Avoid Brown Marks on Eggs
The small brown marks on your eggs are where the eggs come onto contact with the muffin pan. These marks don’t change the taste of the eggs. However, to avoid these marks altogether, use a silicone muffin pan!
