perfect hard “boiled” eggs

So many people struggle with getting the perfect hard boiled egg.  Sometimes they are underdone and a chewy center and sometimes they are over done and rubbery with a chalky yolk.  Then there is always that mysterious green ring around the yolk to combat.

Well this is by far the easiest way to get perfect hard boiled eggs…. bake them. 

-Preheat oven to 325 or if you have a cooler oven then 350.  I have a convection so 325 was perfect for me

- Place one egg in each compartment of a muffin tin, then put them in the oven and bake for 30 min.  (don’t add water… you will literally bake them)

-While the eggs are baking prepare the ice bath.  You fill the bowl with ice then add cool water.  As soon as the eggs come out of the oven, use tongs to put them in the ice bath.  This will stop the cooking and make the eggs easy to peel.  Keep them in the ice bath until they are cool.

You will have the perfect hard “boiled” eggs.  Fully cooked yet tender and no green/blue ring around the yolk.
