I have to admit I was hesitant. I don't usually have problems making hard boiled eggs except on rare occasion and when there's a problem it's a BIG one. Something you should know about me is when I make a mistake it's not usually on a small scale. Back to the eggs... I put a lot of thought into this interesting way of hard cooking eggs. Since I've only had one thing on my mind lately. DEVILED EGGS!!! I thought it wouldn't hurt to try this method of hard cooking them.
Alton Brown says to place the eggs right on top of the oven racks and bake them. This sounded awfully precarious to me. So I chose to safely nestle my eggs inside a muffin tin to avoid any accidents. The other thing I always do after my eggs are cooked is place them in a large pot of ice water for 5 minutes. Then I drain the water and shake the eggs like crazy. This really helps with peeling those pesky shells off the eggs, try it and see for yourself.
As far as I can tell everything went successfully. It was kinda nice not to have to worry about boiling water. The eggs were no easier or harder to peel than usual. I did find it fascinating that the eggs developed little brown spots throughout the process that even stayed after they were peeled. I have no clue why but I thought they were interesting and kinda pretty.
Have you tried this method of cooking eggs before? I think I might continue it in the future. You'll have to stay tuned to find out what happened when I cut them open. Were the yolks any different? I'm going to be sharing in the near future my FAVORITE, as of right now, recipe for deviled eggs. I hope you'll come back to read about them, they are roll your eyes in the back of your head yummy.
Don't forget if you have a tidbit
you can share it on my Facebook page or e-mail it to me.
I look forward to featuring you and or your blog!
