Here’s a tip sent in by Barb for making big batches of boiled eggs at once. Actually, they’re not heated in water at all so maybe “baked” is a more appropriate title ;).
Here’s Barb’s tip:
Here’s a way to prepare lots of hard boiled eggs without having to work with big pots of water, bake them right in the oven!
Put a baking sheet on the bottom of the oven then place all the eggs you need cooked directly on the rack, the baking sheet will catch any broken ones for easy cleanup. I’ve never had one break yet but this is just in case.
Bake them at 325°F. for half an hour (do not preheat).
Take them out then put them directly into a big bowl of very cold water (with ice added). This will stop them from cooking and make them easier to peel too.
I must try this the next time I want to make a big batch, thanks a bunch Barb!
Update: Now that you’ve prepared a bunch, how to shell them all easily? Here’s a tip sent in by Pat:
For easy shelling, crack them all over. Pull off a tiny bit of the shell AND skin. Insert a small spoon under the skin and shell and push it all around the white. This will get all the shell off easily.
Rinse and start preparing it for a treat!!
