This Is So Cool......

Baked Hard Boiled Eggs

Just put your raw eggs in the muffin tin. Put them in the oven at 325 degrees (Don't Preheat) for 30 minutes.

Fill a bowl with ice water and when the eggs are done, place them in the water for 10 minutes.

I peeled one right away and I was so amazed, this was the best tasting egg and OMG!!  so easy to peel, (which is a first) usually I fight with eggs to get this job done!

From now on this will be my method!  

Enjoy!  :)
