Baked hard "boiled" eggs – time saver or mess maker?

Happy New Year to all!

My husband, Michael, and I have decided that we are starting to eat healthy and exercise more.  Since he is working today, I am at home watching the Food Network.  One of the tips I picked up today was  hard cooking eggs by baking them instead of boiling them.  Since I was planning to hard boil some eggs today, I decided to try it.

I preheated the oven to 325 F, put 12 eggs into my muffin tin.  I baked the eggs for 30 minutes and then put them into ice water for 10 minutes.  I had one egg that broke in the oven, but it didn’t make a mess.

Here are my thoughts on this method of hard cooking the eggs:

1.  The eggs get a dark mark on them where they touch the muffin tin. This mark goes through into the egg white.  Not appetizing at all.
2.  The eggs are NOT easy to peel.  I have a bunch of egg that are missing most of their whites because they did not peel nicely.  What a mess!!
3.  It was easy.  I may have to play with this idea a little bit to figure out how to get the dark mark to not happen.

Hope everyone is doing well!
