We love deviled eggs and we find it much easier to make boiled eggs in the oven for your favorite deviled egg recipe. I have a large family and all my kids love hard boiled eggs and deviled eggs. (They usually eat 2 or 3 at a time.) Making boiled eggs in the oven is a great time saver for us.
How Do You Boil Eggs In The Oven?
When making hard boiled eggs in the oven you technically aren’t boiling the eggs, but baking them in the oven. You can bake eggs in their shell right in the oven and the end result will be hard-cooked eggs that taste the same as ones you boil in water.
What Happens If You Cook An Egg In The Oven?
If you cook an egg with its shell on you can make a hard boiled egg in the oven. The recipe is easy too!
Preheat the oven to 350, place the eggs in a muffin tin and bake for about 30 minutes. Wholesome Yum suggests baking for 20 minutes for a softer boiled egg.
This cooking method makes great hard boiled eggs for your family to enjoy or use in a recipe such as this Weight Watchers Egg Salad.
How Long Does It Take To Hard Boil An Egg?
If you are making baked eggs, we find that baking them in muffin tins for around 30 minutes works well for us for an end result that is similar to boiling in water or in the Instant Pot.
How Do You Cook Boiled Eggs So They Peel Easily?
Baked hard-cooked eggs are definitely a game changer! Place eggs in a muffin tin, then in the oven for 30 minutes, then in a bowl of ice water to cool. That’s it.
The BEST part? The peel practically slides off in one piece. Baked hard boiled eggs peel easily for us every time.
How To Make Baked Hard Boiled Eggs
Take eggs out of the refrigerator and preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Gently place the eggs into a muffin tin with one egg in each muffin well. Bake the eggs in the oven for 30 minutes.
When the eggs are almost ready, prepare an ice water bath.
Using silicone tongs, transfer the eggs from the muffin tin to the ice water bath.
Allow the eggs to cool in the water for 10 minutes before peeling or storing.

Stuffing Eggs Benedict -My husband LOVES Thanksgiving, so much so that we cook two Turkeys so we can have at least a week or two of leftovers! While I do not mind eating Thanksgiving dinner over and over again, I also feel the need to reinvent our leftovers for other dishes. This Stuffing Eggs Benedict dish was inspired by something I saw on TV and our favorite crab cake breakfast from a restaurant in Charleston, SC. I used leftover stuffing as the “cake” and a basic hollandaise sauce to top on the eggs. I’m lazy on weekend mornings, no doubt about that, so when I make hollandaise sauce I use Julia Child’s easy blender recipe, and it is very tasty.
