Baked “Hard Boiled” Eggs


Baked “Hard Boiled” Eggs

I love hard boiled eggs. They are one of my all time favorite snacks. Hard Boiled Eggs are high in protein and low in calories making them a perfect quick healthy snack. I love hard boiled eggs because I can peel and eat them just how they are or I can add them to my lunch time salads!

Even my daughter loves hard boiled eggs and often takes them in her school lunches.

Because of my family loving them so much I often make 2-3 dozen ‘hard boiled’ eggs each month. But, all that cooking was getting tiresome. The truth of it was I was either getting them over done or not done enough. That is whey I decided to start baking my ‘hard boiled’ eggs. I love this idea because it get’s the eggs cooked perfectly each and every time.


The first thing I do is make sure the baking rack is right in the middle of the oven.

Next I pre-heat the oven to 325 degrees.

Then I place the eggs on the baking rack. When doing this I make sure non of them are touching. Also if you have more then one rack in your oven I would advise you to place a rack on the bottom and place a cookie sheet on that rack. That way if any of the eggs break the mess will be easy to clean up. (I have never had an egg break so it does not happen often.)

Once the eggs are in the oven I bake them for 30 minutes. When they are done they will have brown spots on some as shown in the picture above. It is nothing to worry about.


Once eggs are done baking, remove them with a pair of tongs or something that will grab ahold of them. They will be HOT!

Immediatly place the Eggs into a sink filled with COLD ICE water. This will help to shock them and keep the yolks from turning that funky green color!


After sitting in the ice water for about 10 minutes your eggs will be done! Peel and enjoy right away or place them in the fridge and save for later! Yum!

    What size eggs are you using for the 30 minute cook time? Thanks.

    • These were medium eggs. They do take longer then the 15 minute boil time…but they are worth the extra time!

    I am absolutely amazed at this! I love them too, but can only cook about 10 at a time in a pot!

  3. What a great tip!

    Definitely can cook more this way!

  4. A lady I work with bakes her eggs to make hard boiled eggs. She uses a cupcake pan – puts one egg in each cup.

  10. Definitely haven’t tried this before. It sounds so interesting! Baking them? I think that I will try it just to see how it comes out. My kids will get a kick out of trying this. I always love a new idea. Thanks for sharing.

  12. Wow, what a great trick! Thanks!

  13. Amazing! I have seen this on Pinterest and thought for sure no one had really tried it, because I certainly thought they would explode. I’ll have to try this next time I make deviled eggs.

  14. Wow, I had no idea eggs could be baked! I guess I assumed they would explode. Thanks for the instructions!

  15. Wishing you a peaceful Memorial Day Weekend and thank you so much for sharing with Full Plate Thursday.
    Come Back Soon,

    I never would have thought to bake my hard-boiled eggs, but it sounds like a great concept. Thanks for the instructions on how to do it, and also for the tip of placing a cookie sheet underneath to catch mishaps. I will definitely have to try this, as we love hard-boiled eggs, plain, as egg salad for sandwiches, or chopped on a lettuce salad.
