The Frugal Kitchen: Baked "Hard Boiled" Eggs

I had read about baking eggs to make "hard boiled" eggs the easy way.  All I had to do was pop some whole eggs in a muffin tin and bake them for 30 minutes at 350 degrees fahrenheit.  The eggs were supposed to be easier to peel than boiled eggs, but have the same consistency as traditional hard boiled eggs.

I followed the baking instructions.

Then I popped the eggs into iced water.

After they were cool I peeled them and they did peel easily.  Unfortunately, the whites had a rubbery texture and had at least one brown spot per egg.

Maybe I should have baked them for a shorter period of time, but every article I read said 30 minutes.  I think I'll stick with the traditional boiling method, but if anyone has some tips please let me know.

God bless,


  1. Always wondered about this method! Thank you for trying it for me : )

  2. I wondered also. But why turn on an oven for 30 min plus preheat time. I always bring mine up to a boil with a lot of salt. then I turn off the burner and let it sit for about 20 min. I normally get perfectly cooked eggs with no green on the yolk.
