Hard-boiled eggs are one of life’s simple pleasures. But the whole stovetop method can be a drag. (Remember that time they weren’t finished and you got yolk everywhere?)

What if we told you there’s an easier way to make hard boiled eggs? There is, and it involves your oven.

How to make hard boiled eggs? Preheat the oven to 325 degrees (or 350 if your oven runs cooler). Place eggs in a mini muffin tin and cook them for 30 minutes, then place them in cool water for about 10 minutes.

Do they taste any different? Baked eggs will have a slightly creamier texture than boiled ones.

So, why should I try it? Oven-baking is the easiest way to make hard boiled eggs in bulk. They’ll cook to perfection consistently, and with almost no effort. Plus, you can keep your hard-baked eggs in the fridge for up to a week. (Psst... and here's the best way to peel them when you're ready.)
