My favorite hard boiled egg recipe is SO simple that it doesn’t even require any water. Technically, it’s not even boiling, but it IS hard cooking. The end results are the same- a delicious hard cooked egg, but the peeling process is way, way easier! If you’ve ever struggled with peeling fresh eggs, then try this method.
Heat oven to 325*. Place your eggs in a mini-muffin tin. (Not essential but they are much easier to handle this way)
Bake for 30 minutes, and place finished cooked eggs in a bowl full of cool water to bring the temp down so they’re cool enough to peel.
To make peeling super simple, you can tap & then roll to crack the shell, and then I like to slip a teaspoon just under the membrane and the egg slips out easily.
Crack the shell all over. Find the hollow end, and slip a teaspoon into it, working it just under the membrane.
Slide the spoon up the side of the egg, and the shell will pop right off. Easy peasy!
