Easiest Hard Boiled Eggs, Plus Avocado Egg Salad Recipe

While browsing through Pinterest (my obsession) I stumbled across a pin that blew my mind. Fresh Family Meals claimed that you could get the results of hard boil eggs by putting them in the OVEN!

OMG. Mind Blown.

So, of course, I have to try it! I admit that I was doubtful, but what was the worst thing that could happen?! Nothing because it's AWESOME.

What You Need
  • Eggs
  • Muffin tin
  • Oven
  • Cold water
It's so easy and the best part is that the shells practically fall off the egg! I love it!

When you place your eggs in the muffin tin, if they can wiggle a bit, then add some muffin liners for "cushion" because they may wobble as they heat up. If they are snug in the tin then you can skip this step.
I like to stick them in the oven when it's cold and let them gradually warm up with as the oven heats up. Fresh Family Meals says that oven temps can vary so you can use a range between 325F and 350F-- just experiment as to what works best for you. I used 335F and cooked them for 35 minutes which worked perfectly! 

After they are done cooking, immediately put them in an ice bath for 10-13 minutes. Remove all the eggs from the ice bath and place them on a paper towel and then peel away! 

Look how perfect they turned out! 

Simple Avocado Egg Salad
This is such a simple recipe that I love so much! It's great to make a few hard boiled eggs and put them in the fridge so you can just grab a couple and make lunch in no time!

What You Need:
(serves 1 person)
  • 2 eggs, diced
  • 1/2 Avocado, smashed
  • Juice of 1/2 lime
  • Salt and Pepper
  • Optional: Diced Jalapeno
  • Optional: Fresh Cilantro
Simply place all the ingredients in a bowl and stir to combine. 

Seriously, it's that easy! 

You can eat it out of the bowl or place it on slices of lettuce to make a paleo approved "wrap". If eaten either of these ways it is gluten free, soy free, and dairy free! Yay!

If you aren't paleo, it's would be great on toast, a bagel or in a sandwich. 

I've even made deviled eggs with this base before too! It was pretty awesome!
