Things You’ll Need

  • One dozen eggs

  • Muffin pan

  • Ice

  • 2 cups cold water

Step 1

Preheat oven to 325° F. Place each egg in the mold of a muffin tin, to ensure they don't roll around too much. Bake for 20 minutes.

Step 2

Prepare an ice bath by adding the ice and about 2 cups of water to a large bowl. Once the eggs are done baking, plunge them in the ice bath and allow them to soak for 10 minutes. This helps stop the cooking process.

Fill a large bowl with water and ice.

Step 3

Peel the eggs and serve at once, or place them in the fridge, prior to peeling, for up to 7 days.
