Hi! I'm Karen, a stay at home mom and blogger. Mostly I write about the new foods and recipes I've been making at my house. I like nutella, avocados, muddy buddies, mushrooms, tomatoes, peaches, berries, beans and rice, dark chocolate, cilantro, peanut butter, fried eggs and a million other types of foods. Most of the time, I like to make really easy and simple recipes--that's why I use my slow cooker a lot! I hope you find my posts helpful! Please comment and let me know when you make one of my recipes!

Easiest Hard Boiled Eggs Ever! Use this trick for Easter this year!

easiest hard boiled eggs!


Maybe I’m the last one to hear of this trick.

But in case I’m not, I wanted to share it with you!

It will change your life.  Well, maybe not your life, but definitely your Easter!

  • Preheat your oven to 325 degrees F
  • Simply take a muffin tin (regular size or mini) and fill with as many eggs as you want.  This is a great way to make eggs in bulk!
  • Pop the muffin tin in the oven and bake for 30 minutes.
  • Remove the muffin tin from the oven.
  • Use tongs to place the eggs in a huge bowl of water with lots of ice cubes in it.
  • Let the eggs cool completely in the water for about 10 minutes, if all the ice melts add more.
  • Remove the eggs, dry off a bit.
  • Now you can peel and eat or dye them or whatever!

Peeling the eggs seems to be easier when I use this method.  In addition, peeling the eggs right after they’re done cooling is easiest.

Happy Easter Everyone!

p.s.  If you’re looking for a recipe that uses hard boiled eggs this Avocado Deviled Egg recipe is to dye for….ha ha get it?  Dye for?  I kill myself.

    We tried this and the eggs burst in the oven. maybe not cook quite as long???

      Lana, that’s crazy! I’ve done it 3 times and had no issues. Maybe turn the temp down?

    Eggs had spots on shells and inside on egg whites! What could be the problem?

      Gerry, It might be a little burnt spot. Use a cupcake liner perhaps?

    These deffinitely were the easiest hard boiled eggs I have ever made! They turned out perfect, no cracks or bubbles, and when I opened one to check it out, there was no gray either. Soooo easy and I loved that I didn’t have to boil a ton of water. I ended up making 30 eggs. I think I had my oven at a slightly lower temp., maybe around 275 degrees. Thanks Karen!

    The first time I used this method, the yolks turned out perfectly but there were tiny brown spots on the whites. I just cut them out and used for deviled eggs. They were easy to peel.. Today I put a paper liner in and cooked for same amount of time and then used the ice bath. The yolks were not done and the eggs were very difficult to peel. I threw the whole dozen away. I’m not sure what the difference was although I did use fresher eggs which I know are usually more difficult to peel.
