The Big Fluffy Dude with the Cute Tail is on His Way
For all of you perpetually busy (or perpetually procrastinating, whatev’s, no judgment here) parents like me – today is the day to color Easter eggs before the big bunny makes his visit.
Did you know that you can make hard-boiled eggs in the oven?! You can and they are so super easy!
I like to take the eggs out of the fridge and let them come close to room temp before baking. This helps lessen the chances of the eggs cracking.
Preheat your oven to 325°F and place your eggs in a medium to large muffin tin to keep them from rolling around.
Bake them for 28-31 minutes. I have found we like them best when cooked for 28. This makes the yolk the pretty bright yellow without the gray ring around the outside.
It is normal for the eggs to come out of the oven with little brown spots. They usually come off in the ice bath. If they don’t and it really matters to you, you can rub them off with a cloth.
Immediately after removing from the oven, place them in a large bowl filled with ice water for about 10 minutes to stop the cooking process. If all the ice melts before the 10 minutes is up, add more ice.
Remove the eggs and dry with a dish towel or place on a wire rack to dry.
An added bonus to this super easy method is that the shells peel off really, really easily.
Now, bust out the Easter egg coloring kits and make some memories with your little’s!
