It's hard to catch me with something about cooking I don't already know about, but this one did just that. 325 F oven for 30 minutes, great for doing large batches. Who knew?

Thirty minutes at 325 versus nine minutes at 212?

There are a couple of pertinent points to consider:

Nine minutes in boiling water is likely to give you medium softboiled eggs (more like 12-14 for hard), and from coldwater start to finish, hardboiling is going to take about 25 minutes overall, so there's no big time penalty to do it this way.

It is claimed that the texture is superior, "creamier". (Hard to judge without trying it.)

It is hard to boil a couple of dozen eggs at a time. Not so hard to load up an oven rack though.

Timing is less critical. (If you overcook boiled eggs they get rubbery. And if you really overcook them the yolks turn green and they get a sulfur taste.)

There's less risk of cracked shells.


Worth a try, I think. Somebody has to try this and report back!

I'll stick to boiling..... 9 -11 minutes in boiling water never fails. My SIL did cook one on the BBQ pit the other day. Nice mesquite aroma.

I definitely would, but I'm not scheduled to do any cooking for groups in the near future. If I was making a big batch of egg and potato salad for the holiday, that's how I'd go.

If I'm doing eggs for myself or a couple of people, I'm definitely reaching for a saucepan. Why heat up an oven for that little? But I'm thinking a dozen eggs or more, this would make sense.

Wow, that is fascinating! I've never considered the possibility. If I ever have to make a large quantity of hard cooked eggs, this chick is going to bake them.
