Perfect Baked Hard Boiled Eggs

Making hard-boiled eggs in the oven is a simple and fuss-free way to prepare them. The trick is to place your eggs in a muffin tin to keep them steady and prevent rolling. Let them bake for about 30 minutes. Once they’ve cooled down, you’ll have perfectly cooked hard-boiled eggs ready to enjoy or use later. It’s an easy-peasy method that saves you the hassle of boiling water on the stove!
