How to make Hardboiled Eggs in the Oven

How to cook hard boiled eggs in the oven. This is a great tip that works every time!

Have you ever heard of making “Hardboiled” Eggs in the Oven?  I wanted to share with you this method as it is an alternative to hard cooking them traditionally on the stove top. This is a great method and once you try it, I promise you will never go back to using the stove top!

If you are looking for an easy low carb breakfast idea or snack this, is it!  I prep these on Sunday to have for the week and it really keeps my chances of “cheating” at bay.

How to make “Hardboiled” Eggs in the Oven:

Simply use a muffin tin – this so much better than placing on a cookie sheet or on the rack which is all I have ever seen before!  I decided to give it a try and it worked well!

When you bake eggs, the shells will get little brown dots. When you soak them in water prior to peeling the brown spots will disappear.  This method is perfect for coloring eggs for Easter.

  1. Does this work with Farm Fresh Eggs? With those I had to add salt to the boiling process (2TBSP) so the shell will peel from the egg. Otherwise, it will pull the white part of the egg apart.

  2. Interesting idea. What advantage is there to doing them in the oven versus on the stove top? Is it healthier? Do they taste better? It seems since they take much longer to cook, they would cost more per serving.

    1. That’s exactly what I was wondering. I cook bacon in the oven, even tho it takes longer, so that I can (1) free up a burner on the stove for something else (2) have less spatter/mess (3) cook enough for several people and (4) since I don’t have to turn it I can leave it & devote attention to whatever is on the stove.

  3. I wonder if this would also prevent the cracking that can sometime occur on the stove top. My kids love to color eggs but sometimes they can’t color them all due to small cracks. Just a thought, maybe I do a dry run tomorrow before Easter.

    1. You can still color eggs even if there are micro-cracks. Some food coloring may seep in, but it will not hurt anything. The taste will remain the same, and as long as you are using food safe dye, there’s no reason you can’t enjoy them
