How to Boil Eggs in the Oven
Now that I have piqued your interest about using the oven for boiling eggs, I’m excited to teach you how it’s done.
Turn On Your Oven
The first step to boiling eggs in the oven is to go ahead and turn on your oven. I always preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Place the Eggs
Now here comes the fun part. Remember to gently place the eggs into a muffin tin with one egg in each muffin well. Don’t be rough with the eggs because you don’t want them to crack.
Bake the Eggs
If you decide to boil these eggs, you’ll need to bake the eggs in the oven for 30 minutes.
Start an Ice Bath
The key to getting the egg shells off without a problem is an ice bath. Go ahead and start an ice bath as the eggs get close to getting done.
You’ll want to use silicone tongs to transfer the eggs from the muffin tin to the ice water bath. Go ahead and allow the eggs to cool in the water for 10 minutes before peeling or storing.
As you can see, boiling eggs in the oven actually isn’t hard at all. Make sure you follow the tips for getting the eggs to peel.
Benefits of Boiling Eggs in the Oven
One of the major benefits of boiling eggs in the oven is that you don’t need a fancy contraption. Most of us have an oven and can easily turn it on and follow these steps. Plus, if you decide at the last minute you want to boil eggs, you can just turn on the oven and begin the process. Ovens deserve hype too because they are still very relevant.
Also, when you bake eggs in the oven, they don’t do anything weird. They’ll cook to perfection every single time, as long as you don’t overcook.
