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:
How to Bake an Egg
- Preheat over to 325.
- Arrange eggs in a muffin tin. This will keep them in place. No need for eggs to roll all over the place!
- Bake eggs for 20 minutes.
- While baking, prepare a bowl of ice cold water.
- When eggs are cooked, carefully transfer them from the muffin tin to the bowl of water.
- Allow them to cool for 10 minutes.
- Enjoy them as you wish! If you will be eating them, I always find it easiest to peel them under cold running water.
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!
Now that you know how to bake an egg, will you try? Share your experience!
