Pinterest Busters - Make Hardboiled Eggs In The Oven

Supposedly you can make hardboiled eggs in the oven and they turn out like you made them in a pot.  Making hardboiled eggs in the oven would certainly be a little bit easier than boiling them, and you wouldn't add to the humidity in your house during the summer but, does it work?  Let's see.
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.  Place the eggs in a muffin tin.  Bake for 25-30 minutes.  Put the eggs in a cold water bath.  The eggs will have some brown spots on them when they come out of the oven but they washed off in the water.  Leave them in the bath until they are completely cooled.
The eggs peeled like a charm.  The only outward appearance that they had been baked instead of boiled was these brown spots where the shell touched the muffin tin.  Those dark spots can be quickly cut off so they aren't an issue. 

Did we bust the pin?  Nope, they were like a perfect hardboiled egg from the texture to the taste.  This is going to be our new way of hard "boiling" eggs, except from now on we will call them hard "baked" eggs.
