Hard-Baked or Hard-Boiled

Hard-Baked or Hard-Boiled?
Either way, here is how to make the perfect egg in minutes!

Bake or boil, ice, enjoy!

Eggs are one of the foods I’ve been using to really keep myself on track with my weight loss. My other two go-to items are in the post from Sunday if you click HERE! Eggs are packed with protein and are perfect for any meal or just for snacking! And for all of you Mommas out there, it’s the easiest snack to split with your little one. {I give Karter (10 months old) the egg yolk and I eat the white if we are both wanting a quick & easy snack to hold us over!}

I’ve always hard-boiled my eggs. When my sister shared that she “hard-baked” her eggs, all I could think is “Wait, this can be even EASIER?” Both ways are listed below so get ready to bake or boil, ice, and ENJOY!

Hard-Baked Eggs

1. Put eggs into a muffin pan. (I prefer to use a regular size muffin pan. If you use a mini-muffin pan, the eggs will come out with brown rings. This is perfectly fine, but they just don’t look quite as appealing!)

2. Bake at 325 degrees (F) for 30 minutes

3. Remove eggs from oven & muffin pan and place them directly into a bowl of ice water to stop the cooking.

4. After 5-10 minutes, take them out and dry them off.

5. Enjoy!

“I like this method for 2 reasons: the eggs don’t smell nearly as strong as they do when boiled, and the shells come off easier after they’ve been baked.” – Katy

Hard-Boiled Eggs

1. Place eggs in a pot and fill with COLD water. (Cover the eggs by about an inch or so with the water.)

2. Sprinkle a little bit of salt in the water (From what I’ve read and experienced, it makes the shells come off a little easier.)

3. Place over high heat and bring water to a boil

4. Turn heat off, keep the pot on the hot burner, and cover

5. Set a timer for 10-15 minutes (I usually go the full 15)

6. Remove eggs from hot water and place in a bowl of ice water to stop cooking

7. After a few minutes, remove & dry!

8. Enjoy!
