Boiling eggs isn’t rocket science, yet so many of us have trouble making them, myself included.

The answer to the problem of how to perfectly boil an egg is surprising…don’t BOIL the eggs, BAKE them.

Crazy, I know. I’ve been doing this for a few years and I cannot imagine “boiling” an egg any other way. This is especially handy when you want to make a large quantity of eggs.

The biggest benefit of baking the eggs isn’t that you can do a lot at once without worrying about broken shells. It’s not even the fact that baking eggs allows you to peel the shell off of them a zillion times easier. No, the best reason to bake your eggs is that they turn out perfectly creamy every single time. Every time.

Step 1: Preheat your oven to 325 degrees

Step 3: Bake the eggs for 30 minutes

Step 5: Peel, eat and enjoy!

TIP: Don’t worry when you see some brown spots on your cooked eggs. The brown spots are caused by the metal touching the egg during cooking. The spots won’t affect the taste of the egg at all :)
