How to Make Hard Boiled Eggs in the Oven

This my friends is a major kitchen hack! My life is changed forever!

I love, love hard boiled eggs. Now my confession. I stink at boiling them. I seriously do not know why. It’s an affliction of sorts. My hard boiled eggs come out soft boiled at least 50% of the time.

But not anymore! I saw on Pinterest recently about baking eggs in the oven instead of boiling them for hard boiled eggs. What?!  Yes, and it is fabulous!  It you haven’t tried it yet, you must. They turned out perfect with no cracks!

I am THRILLED to share how to make hard boiled eggs in the oven with you.


Preheat oven to 325 degrees.

Place eggs in a muffin in so they don’t roll around.

Bake for 30 minutes Then place in ice water for 10 minutes.

eggs in cold water

Peel eggs and ENJOY!!

Good Morning Sherri, I received your email in my intray, and I was intrigued, because I thought I knew how to boil an egg…. but this is a revelation I can honestly say I have never heard of cooking hard boiled eggs in the oven. This I am absolutely going to be trying.
Thank you to you Sherri, for sharing this and thank you to whoever pinned this information….. I really feel there are going to be lots of people trying this method.
Best Wishes to you.

This reminds me of when I lived in Thailand, one of my favourite things they sell on the beach, in terms of food, is cooked eggs. The sellers carry small portable homemade BBQs and cook the eggs, in their shells, over them. Yummy!

Wow, they look perfect! What an awesome idea for when you need lots of boiled eggs. I could have used this for making my son’s birthday party egg salad sandwiches. :)


Ginnie July 28, 2014 at 6:56 pm

This is such a cool idea! I will definitely be trying it soon:)

I just love ideas like this, and this one is so smart. If I’ve got the oven on already, why not? Thanks for sharing such a great tip. I’m pinning!

Funny, I just did a post and link on how too cook hard boiled eggs in the rice cooker since I didn’t care for the oven method :-) … the rice cooker is nice as it doesn’t heat up the kitchen! :-)

This is a great tip. I had no idea you could make hard boiled eggs in the oven!

I would be honored to have you hop over and share with us at Inspire Us Tuesday.

Wow, what a great idea. I have never heard of this, but I am going to try it.
Thanks for sharing,

Wow, I love this! When I discovered that I could fry bacon in the oven, it was liberating. Now I can do the eggs in there too! Yipee

Great tip! We would love for you to share at the Caffeinated Crafters Link Party here:


Swathi July 30, 2014 at 2:54 pm

That is wonderful tip, I will try it, thanks for sharing with Hearth and Soul blog hop, pinning and sharing it in the FB.

My favorite way to make eggs!


Momfever July 31, 2014 at 5:40 am

Great idea! The only question I have is this: isn’t this way of boiling an egg way more expensive? You know, energy wise? Because of the 30 minutes in the oven as compared to 6 minutes on a stove?


Baker Bowden - (My Wife's Muffin) July 31, 2014 at 7:38 am

That’s a great idea! Especially for those events when you have to make a dozen deviled eggs. Thanks for sharing! Bake on, eh!


Jill @ Do Try This at Home July 31, 2014 at 7:55 am

Interesting idea & no waiting for the water to boil! I’ve never had any trouble boiling the eggs but I do have trouble with the shells sticking now and then (even when I add baking soda, even when I ice afterward, even after ALL the tricks!). Does this method help any with that?


Sherri July 31, 2014 at 8:01 am

I didn’t have trouble at all with the shells coming off easily :-)


Karen Goodman July 31, 2014 at 11:50 am

I saw this on Pinterest too, but wrote it off as silly. Then when I saw your link on the Inspire Us Thursday party, it occurred to me that if I’ve got the oven on already to make something else, why not toss in a few eggs for egg salad (one of my very favorite things!). Will try it out next time I’m cooking!


Cynthia July 31, 2014 at 2:38 pm

How cool! I love this idea. I can’t believe I’ve been making hard boiled eggs a different way for years. Thank you for linking at the In and Out of the Kitchen Link Party. Hope to see you again next week.


Patti August 1, 2014 at 7:46 am

Never heard of this one. When I saw the title I had to come check it out. I’m definitely going to try this one! Thanks.


Stephanie August 1, 2014 at 7:17 pm
