I love hard boiled eggs, but I hate having to keep an eye on them! You know I am not the best at cooking! I’m learning! As my kids are getting older it is not as big of concern but when they were e small it was incredibly hard to watch them and make any food. I was stuck with quick meals and anything that I didn’t need to keep a close eye on!

Simply take the desired amount of eggs you want boiled and place them in a standard size muffin pan (you can also just place on the racks but more likely to break and make a huge yucky mess).

Step 3

Place the muffin pan in the Oven and bake for 30 – 40 mins. Please remember each oven will vary by elevation and by make, so adjust accordingly.

Step 4

Using Tongs remove the eggs and place in the mixing bowl filled with cold water and ice cubes. The cold water helps separate the egg from the shell. Do not remove eggs until completely cooled.

    1. For me having small kids and them being notorious for getting int trouble every time I walk into the kitchen it helps plus ican go a larger amount at once rather than just a pot full and refrigerate them for the week and eat as wanted. Cook once for the week and it save time for me.

    Great tip. However, I thought it would save me from forgetting about the eggs on the stove top until the explosion. Ha. They explode in the oven too. I need to invest in a timer or remember to set the one on my phone.
    The muffin tin is a great idea.
