On of my most basic go-to breakfast and snack and topping on a salad, is a hard boiled egg. For some reason, whenever I try to make them using the traditional method on top of the stove, they are a pain to peel. It’s awful. My egg is pock marked because I cannot fully get under that membrane that runs under the shell.  Inevitably, I end up wasting part of the egg white because it is stuck to the shell.

Not anymore!

Behold, the perfectly peel-able hard BAKED egg.

Okay, here we go! Let your eggs rest on the counter for 30 minutes prior to doing this. This method will also work if you go straight from fridge to oven, but I felt they turned out better resting on the counter a bit. Preheat your oven to 325 degrees. Take your eggs and place them in a muffin tin. Do not add water to the bottom of the cups. It should look like this:
Carefully put the tray into the oven and let them bake for 30 minutes.  Take them out and immediately plunge them into an ice water bath.
Let them rest for 4-5 minutes. I promise, you will have a perfectly, peel-able egg!
