How To Cook Boiled Eggs In The Oven and What Happens.
This recipe has been all over the Internet on how to hard boil eggs in the oven. I decided I was going to try it. I have to say they cook without blowing up. They didn't crack. They peel easier than when cooked in a pan of water. The one thing I didn't like is they get brown spots on the egg whites. Makes the eggs look like they're burnt a little, but they didn't taste burnt. That's ok if you’re using them in a dish like egg salad it won't show but if you’re using them for deviled eggs it may show.
We buy free range eggs. The chickens in the picture are the actual chickens we get our eggs from. The free range eggs are often hard to peel after being boiled, but they were not hard to peel when done in the oven. The store bought eggs which are the white eggs in the pictures were very easy to peel. If you look at the very bottom picture on the right there is a free range egg and the store bought egg in the bowl. The free range is deep yellow and the store bought light yellow.
One Dozen Eggs or any amount you would like to cook
1 Muffin Pan
Bowl for cold water
Preheat oven to 325°. Take one muffin (you can use any size you want) pan and place a clean egg in each section. Place in oven and bake for 30 minutes. Remove from oven and place each egg in very cold water, add ice if need be. No more than 10 minutes in cold water or ice water. I didn't have to add ice. When the eggs are cool remove from water. You can now shell and peel the eggs or leave in shells and place in refrigerator.

What Would You Do?
Would You Oven Cook Your Eggs?
Don’t try to cook your eggs in the microwave they will blow up.
If you are boiling eggs add a tablespoon of white vinegar, eggs will not crack.
My friend tried to make pickled eggs by putting the whole egg shell and all into a jar, She thought the brine would make the egg shell soft and she would have pickled eggs. It doesn’t work that way.
How To Tell If An Egg Is Good
The Anatomy of a Chicken
What Causes Double Yolk Eggs.
We often get double yolk eggs. I love it when that happens. The double yolk is caused from two yolks from the ovary being released into the oviduct. Chickens have all the yolks they will lay in their lifetime in the ovary. One egg in 1,000 will be the double yolk. Back yard hens will lay double yolk eggs. You won't get them from store bought eggs because in the US they won't sell double yolk eggs. Two chicks can come from a double yolk egg, twins. Double yolk eggs are also supposed to bring luck.
What Are The Difference Between White and Brown Eggs.
No difference just the color.
Chickens with red earlobes produce brown eggs. Chickens with white earlobes produce white eggs.
