Recipe: Roasted Eggs

Recipe: Roasted Eggs post image

At this time of year, who doesn’t need lots of hard boiled eggs? Here is a novel way to cook eggs that may help you when you have a lot of eggs to hard boil and not enough room in the pot or on top of the stove. Calling it a roasted egg may even entice a child to try a hard boiled egg even if they have been a little hesitant about them. Roasted or hard boiled — they make a great snack especially when they come from pastured chickens!

Roasted Eggs


  • Pastured eggs — as many as you need


  1. Make sure your rack is in the middle of the oven
  2. Place a baking sheet or foil at the bottom in case an egg should break
  3. Place the eggs directly on the rack
  4. Bake at 325 degrees F for 30 minutes
  5. Remove eggs and quickly place them in a blow of cold water (to stop the cooking)
  6. Enjoy now or store in the refrigerator
  7. They are exactly like hard boiled eggs

    wow, thank you for this! I had no idea you could “roast” eggs! this looks really easy!

    This is too cool for words :).

    I did this for Easter egg dying. While they were hard boiled enough to dye, they were not cooked all the way through. Even the whites were still runny. I’m thinking the temps need to be higher or they need to go longer. I won’t do it again, though it was convient!

    I tried this for Easter egg dying. ((Optimal word: TRIED)). I guess I left them in the oven too long – or my oven (which runs hot) was too hot. Anyway, my eggs exploded. Not all of them, just a few. I am so glad to see your directions… I’m sure I did something wrong:(. Thanks, I’ll try it again using your directions…

      Hi Erika,
      Be sure to put a liner at the bottom of the oven just in case…

  • Beth @ Aunt B's Kitchem April 10, 2012, 8:29 am

    Good tip. Thank you.

  • France @ Beyond The Peel April 10, 2012, 11:57 am

    That’s a really neat idea. What a great way of doubling up ones efforts while baking other things like roasting veggies.

  • Cassie @ A Little Treat April 11, 2012, 10:16 am

    So awesome. There are no other words. Thank you for sharing this! My sweet and I eat hard boiled eggs like there is no tomorrow so this is going to help! Happy Treats!

  • Penniless Parenting April 11, 2012, 10:48 am

    Thanks for sharing this idea!

  • Michelle April 11, 2012, 7:47 pm

    Wow! I didn’t know you could roast eggs like this…thanks for sharing! :)

  • Jen@mamaZEN April 12, 2012, 9:28 am

    I am excited to try this! I hate boiling eggs, this is a great alternative! I am a new follower via the Simple Lives Thursday blog hop

    Great idea! We love hard boiled eggs. It sounds like a good way to cook lots of eggs. It’s probably not worth heating up the oven for a smaller amount, and I wouldn’t do it in the summer. I might give it a try while the weather is still cool though.

  • Claudia April 12, 2012, 2:57 pm

    I like this way of occasionally using the oven to cook eggs, for when it’s on at that temperature anyway. Good idea.

  • Rebecca @ Natural Mothers Network April 13, 2012, 6:34 am

    Yes a great idea when you have the oven on anyway for something else! Rebecca @ Natural Mothers Network x

    A couple of months ago I used this method to hard boil 15 dozen eggs for deviled eggs for a wedding reception. It works great!

    • Jill April 13, 2012, 4:38 pm

      Hi Melissa,
      Yes, I read about the wedding reception you catered! Thanks for sharing!

  • Mooberry Farmwife April 19, 2012, 12:41 pm

    I have not heard of roasting eggs! Oh, I am excited to give your method a try. I just boiled 2 dozen eggs (stovetop) yesterday to make pickled eggs with. Next time, I’m roasting them! :)

    also happening with this paragraph which I am reading here.

    The other day, while I was at work, my cousin stole my iphone and
    tested to see if it can survive a 25 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now broken and
    she has 83 views. I know this is totally off topic but
    I had to share it with someone!
