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. This 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!
With just a few days before Easter, it is ’tis the season for hard boiled eggs. Not just for yummy deviled eggs, but most importantly it’s the kid’s egg dying time! 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.
Now that you know how to bake an egg, will you try? Share your experience!
