Baked, hard boiled eggs.  How can an egg be baked and hard boiled?  Great question.  Let’s take a step back.  Eggs are affordable source of protein.  Hard boiled eggs are also portable.  Portable protein sources make life convenient.  There are three problems with boiling eggs.  First a large pot of boiling water on top of the stove, a concern if you have small children.  Second having to watch the pot for boil over.  Third having to peel the shells that sometimes just do not want to come off the egg.  Baking the eggs provides all of the convenience of a hard boiled egg with out the three concerns listed above.

Method One on left above.  Preheat your oven to 350F.  Place the eggs into cupcake tins. Place tins in the oven and bake for 20-30 minutes depending on oven.

 

Method Two on the right above.  Preheat your oven to 350F.  Coat a cupcake tin with non stick cooking spray.  Crack the eggs and drop one egg per cupcake spot.  Place tin in oven and bake for 20-30 minutes again depending on oven.  This method eliminate problem three, having to peel the eggs.
