Pinned It, Tried It:Oven Baked Eggs

Hey there friends!

This time of year is egg season, for sure. Real ones, plastic ones, and my personal favorite...chocolate ones!

However, it's the hard-boiled ones I want to talk to you about today.

I have a confession: I hate boiling eggs. For real. Hate.

I know, it's kind of right up there with boiling pasta, but I always manage to mess it up. Under cooked, over cooked, rubbery, green around the edges...ick.

Then I saw this:

Eggs in the oven? Could it be? This I had to try.

If you follow me on Instagram or Twitter (@Its_ALongStory) you probably saw this little experiment in real time. Here it is for the rest of you!

Here goes nothin...(or, a dozen eggs, whatev!)

 Out of the oven, into an ice bath they go!


Results: I'm never boiling eggs again. 25-30 minutes in the oven at 325. No watching, no tricks, easy peasy. I did 2 dozen eggs in my mini-muffin pan last night.

- Some eggs still get green around the edges. Probably the smallest ones in the batch.
- Some eggs are still harder to peel. I think that's just the reality of eggs. My mom says the fresher eggs are harder to peel, so if you need perfectly peeled eggs, maybe buy them a few days before your event?
- Some people stated that the whites of oven baked eggs were fluffier. I didn't necessarily think that, but they certainly aren't rubbery! I call it a win.

Now we get to do this!

Be blessed!



  1. I totally read about baking eggs like a year ago, but never tried it. I know what I'm gonna try tonight!

  2. Yum!! When I boil my eggs I add a spoonful if baking soda to my water and the shells come off so smoothly! I can't wait to try your baking version.

  3. Who knew? I'd never heard of this method until now. I don't mind boiling, so I'll likely stick to it, but will still keep this handy tip in mind. Thanks for sharing your experience with it.

  4. I haven't made hard-boiled eggs in years, but I'm glad it was a success! Good to know for any future egg-stra-curricular activities. (Couldn't resist!)

  5. such a cute mantle!
    and i'm always worried about cooking hard boiled eggs just right. i'm going to have to try that!
