{Tipful Thursday} Easy Peazy Hard Boiled Eggs

Ahhh, I am back from a rather relaxing and unexpected hiatus! Fear not, I have been adding more and more fun topics, favorite items and tips to my ever long blog post to-do list. Now I just need 10 more hours in the day to get them all written!

In the meantime, I have a pretty awesome tip I found on Pinterest to share with you today!

I absolutely LOVE hard boiled eggs! Whether it’s in a salad, an egg salad sandwich or plain as a protein boost, it has always been one of my favorite foods. Second to my former obsession to Diet Coke and current obsession with pizza of course 🙂

When Rob and I got married we had a blast registering for all these fun gadgets at Bed Bath & Beyond. We saw and scanned it all! A waffle maker, griddle, donut maker, Soda Stream and more. I remember seeing a gadget that would hard boil your eggs for you. I thought it would be useful but my dear husband to be, who HATES hard boiled eggs I might add, thought it was a waste because you can do it yourself. So, I compromised and passed on that one.

I can’t tell you how many times over the next few years I wished we had registered for it. I know, it’s not THAT difficult to hard boil eggs. Yet, I never seem to have the urge or patience. I was recently mentioning this story to my sister and she mentioned seeing a PIN on Pinterest with instructions on how to hard boil eggs in the oven using a muffin pan. I didn’t believe it so I searched on Pinterest. Well apparently I missed the boat on this because there were tons of different pins from various websites. Don’t believe me? See for yourself! 

Well the wait is over, because this ACTUALLY works! I now have a true compromise to not buying that gadget oh so long ago. It’s simple, place the number of eggs you want in a muffin pan, bake on 325 for 30 minutes, submerge them in ice water until cool, peel & EAT! There maybe a few brown spots on the eggs but that is just from the pan and doesn’t affect the taste at all.

    Do you have an electric tea kettle? It’s way faster. Put eggs in, cover with water, turn on, come peel them 20 min later!
