I recently started "baking" my bacon, instead of frying it.  It's not as messy, suppose to be healthier and gives me 15 minutes to get the rest of the meal prepared.  I have never tried baking my eggs in their shell, but this Easter instead of hard boiled, I'm going to try this easy, guaranteed way to make a hard egg for coloring.  Have you tried it?

Share this idea and make life easy for all your friends and family....what a cool idea!  First, I would carefully wash my eggs, then just bake at 325 for 30 minutes.

I would suggest using a mini-muffin pan if you have one, or a muffin tin, rather than a cookie sheet or cake pan, to avoid rolling around. And, if placed on their side to bake, the yolk will stay in the middle, otherwise it would be at the bottom of your egg. Not a big deal, unless you like your world uniform, like I do.   Oh, and they'll be HOT when you take them out of the oven, so use tongs.

Place them in ice water immediately after taking them out of the oven to stop them from baking any longer.  Then, the yolk won't get that greenish tinge.  Not a big deal, it doesn't affect the taste and it's fine to eat, but if you're making deviled eggs, you want the filling to be bright yellow!

It really doesn't matter if you are doing 1, 6, 12 or 24 eggs...time and temp are the same! They say the eggs will be easier to peel too, with no sticking.

After cooled, they're ready to decorate for Easter, or just EAT!
