Story

There are a couple of items that have continued to challenge my cooking skills in the last couple of years. One of them is bacon, and the other is hard-boiled eggs. With bacon, I’ve decided that there just isn’t an easy fix to be able to cook an entire package at once and walk away. In fact, trying to do so has caused a large grill fire, a grease-splattered oven, countless events of tripping my smoke alarm, destruction of a brand-new skillet, and the loss of an entire box of foil…used up in just one experiment. So…moving on to hard-boiled eggs! By George, I think we’ve found a solution for having a gluten free, grain free, soy free, Paleo breakfast/lunch/snack item at the ready, and a week’s worth ready to go in just 40 minutes! This method also solves the peeling problem; no more tiny shards of egg casing all over the kitchen floor or clogging up the garbage disposal. This way is so easy, I see no reason to go back to boiling them. Give it a try and let us know the outcome!

Ingredients

12 eggs
Mixing bowl filled with cold water
A large cup of ice

Instructions

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 325 degrees; place the eggs into the muffin molds
  2. Place the muffin tin into the pre-heated oven
  3. Bake for 30 minutes
  4. When about 5 minutes are remaining on the timer, fill the large mixing bowl with the cold water and ice, leaving enough room in the bowl to add the eggs
  5. Remove the muffin tin from the oven and submerge the eggs individually in the bowl of ice water (use a hot pad or tongs…the eggs are hot!)
  6. Keep the eggs submerged for a timed 10 minutes
  7. Remove the eggs from the cold water and peel (the peel will come off in large pieces…no more tiny egg shards during the peeling process!)
  8. Store the peeled eggs in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to one week
  9. Tip for Eating on the Go:  Place the hard-boiled eggs individually into sandwich bags or airtight containers for a portioned snack or breakfast on the go
  10. Enhance the Environment Tip:  Crumble the egg shells and add to compost or a flower pot for easy soil nourishment…and less in the landfill!
