Hard Boil Eggs in the Oven

How To Hard Boil Eggs In The Oven. Huffington Post


Next time you want to hard boil eggs, don't start a pot of water to boil. Instead, turn on the oven. Even though the name of these eggs suggests that they should be boiled, it's so much easier -- and some say better -- when baked.

Sure, it takes longer to make boiled eggs in the oven, a whole 30 minutes vs. the nine when boiled, but there are perks to this hands-off method. When baked, hard boiled eggs have a creamier texture. Some say that they're even easier to peel.

But the real appeal of baking eggs rather than boiling them is when you need to make a large amount -- like when feeding a big crowd. It's so much easier to cook two or three dozen on an oven rack than in a huge pot of boiling water.

The perfect boiled egg. Put eggs in pan filled with water. Heat on high and when the water starts
to boil, turn off the burner. Cover with lid for 10 minutes. Drain, put eggs in ice water for 5 minutes.
To peel...hit the bottom (Large end) first, then hit the top end and peel.

I live at high altitude in Colorado and the eggs started exploding at about 25 minutes. Any suggestions?
