This foolproof recipe shows you exactly how to make hard-boiled eggs in the oven. They turn out perfect every time and are a dream to peel!


  • 12 eggs, see note 1


  • Preheat: Preheat the oven to 325°F degrees.
  • Bake: Place eggs in a muffin tin to keep them from rolling around (see note 2) Put the eggs in the preheated oven for 30-33 minutes (see note 3)
  • Ice Bath: Once the eggs are done cooking immediately put them in a large bowl of ice water for 10 minutes (see note 4). Use tongs! The eggs will be hot!
  • Peel: Peel the eggs if eating within a day or two (see note 5). Otherwise keep them in their shells. Refrigerate in a sealed container. 


Note 1: Although the recipe calls for 12 eggs, feel free to use only the number you need. 
Note 2: I recommend using a silicone muffin tin but a metal one will also work!
Note 3: Resist the temptation to open the oven to check on the eggs while they're cooking. The oven loses heat when opened and can impact cooking times. 
Note 4: Put the ice in the bowl of water 5-10 minutes before the eggs are done cooking to ensure the water is plenty cold. 
Note 5: See video above for an easy way to peel eggs.
