How to Bake an Egg

Have you been wondering how to bake an egg, rather than boiling one? Did you even know that you could? I most certainly didn’t have any idea. One morning I read a Facebook post about baking eggs so I quickly asked how. I got the directions within minutes and knew that I would be baking eggs by lunchtime!

Hard Boiled Eggs = Baked Eggs

Hard boiled eggs are fully cooked eggs. Oven baked eggs are fully cooked eggs. No matter if we cook them in hot water or a hot stove, the result is the same. I personally find baking eggs easier and less messy.

Easier Than Hard Boiling

Yes, hard-boiling an egg isn’t difficult, but the ability to cook the egg and get the same result – a fully cooked egg on the inside – is clever. Here’s how I did it:

Steps to Bake an Egg

  1. Preheat over to 325.
  2. Arrange eggs in a muffin tin. This will keep them in place. No need for eggs to roll all over the place!
  3. Bake eggs for 20 minutes.
  4. While baking, prepare a bowl of ice cold water.
  5. When eggs are cooked, carefully transfer them from the muffin tin to the bowl of water.
  6. Allow them to cool for 10 minutes.
  7. Enjoy them as you wish! If you will be eating them, I always find it easiest to peel them under cold running water.

 

Baked Eggs in a Bowl! Ready to be eaten or dyed!

 

In our home, we often prepare eggs at Easter to dye and decorate eggs. I enjoy eating hard boiled eggs for breakfast or lunch. They are great sliced in half and with some sea salt sprinkled atop. I also love deviled eggs! When I am following Whole30 I eat eggs, a lot!
