Review – Baking “Hard Boiled” Eggs


Last week I tried this new trend in making hard boiled eggs in the oven. It’s been going around the internet and I had some time to test it.  So I thought I’d give it a try.  I watched the video a few times to be sure I had done it correctly and then off I went.

Yes, it is pretty easy to make hard boiled eggs in the oven. It is pretty much a no brainer.  However, making regular boiled eggs is really pretty easy.


However, as I learned using a muffin tin that has already been sprayed with baking oil will leave your eggs spotted. Inside and out!


And I think that having to prepare the ice bucket bath was just one too many steps in preparing a normally fuss free dish.

The shells peeled pretty well. But really, I’m not sure if it was worth the hype.

Oh well!  I gave it a try and I think I’ll stick with a pot of water and an egg timer.

Have you tried a hack that didn’t measure up to the hype?  Let us know in the comments!
