Bake to Make Hard Boiled Eggs

Bake in a cupcake tin at 325 for 30 minutes. Eggs will have a “creamier” texture on the inside and the shell can obtain slight browning where the egg hits the edges o the cupcake pan. This idea is great to prepare eggs to color or when you need many and already are using all of your burners. This is a great idea also to prepare what you need for few days to have for that extra protein for a lunch. When you remove them from the oven immediately submerge them into an ice bath, which will allow for easy peeling when you are ready to do so.
