My Farmer Boy loves his hard boiled eggs...
he loves them just as they are,
and he loves them made into sandwiches,
and he loves them made into angel eggs.
make hard boiled eggs the old fashioned way...
(or using a variation of this method)
TODAY that is!
Now, I can't and won't take credit for this new modern method..
but right now, I am definitely singing a very happy song because Easter eggs
will be a whole lot easier this year:)
Raw eggs awaiting their time in a preheated 325 degree oven
**(my eggs were large in size)
Eggs baking happily in oven while Aimee does other things...
or perhaps it is Aimee doing other things happily while the eggs bake?
30 minutes later I transfered the baked, very hot eggs carefully to a pan
to take a cold shower/bath under the faucet
Aimee didn't have ice to make an ice bath for these lovely babies;
the cold shower/bath worked fine.
(I occasionally dumped the water in the pan and refilled it with cold water).
**The eggs 'chilled out'...LOL...for about 10 minutes.
Chilled eggs awaiting peeling...
will it work???
One dozen creamy, yummy eggs awaiting hungry hubby's tummy.
LOVE, love, love this method!
Sometimes change is good:)
Has anyone tried this?
I was really impressed --
no cracked eggs,
no hot steamy water,
lovely, lovely, lovely texture with no green...
NO more boiling eggs for me.
**Some people that have tried this have reported tiny brown spots on the egg.
I did find one or so on the white...
but it was not a big deal at all and didn't affect the taste:)
Now on to my next experiment.
Wonder if I get my love for experimenting from my dad?
Repeat, repeat--I DID NOT come up with method.
Here are 2 links to others who have posted about baking 'hard-boiled' eggs...
I love using a muffin tin like the above blogger does.
Another way to bake them...from 2009.
**Another link of interest
In addition to these links there were others describing this method.
And here, on wikipedia,
some gorgous photos of Easter eggs for your viewing pleasure...
