Hard Baked Eggs

When the Hairy Darling expressed a liking for pickled eggs I realized that hard boiling eggs was something I’d never done.

Living with CFS means standing over a boiling pan waiting for just the right moment isn’t an option and counting on a timer to wake me up if I doze off seems like a burnt pan waiting to happen so I poked the Internet to see what would fall out on the subject and found a recipe where whole eggs were baked in the oven by resting them in a muffin tin.

Why make extra work thought I and after a bit if trial and error here we are.

Recipe: Hard Baked Eggs


Eggs – I use free range mixed weight ones


  • Place your eggs directly on to the rack in your halogen oven
  • Bake at 150° for 10 minutes

If eating immediately, I find them easiest to peal while still warm

If cooking for later use, transfer to a bowl of iced water to rapid cool, reducing the risk of bacterial growth and refrigerate within 2 hours.

Store unpeeled, in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a week
