Hard boiled eggs are so convenient as a healthy snack or as part of meal prep by adding them to meals, such as salads.  Having to boil eggs on the stove was always annoying to me, so I was psyched to find this recipe!

I tweaked it just slightly by adding water to each muffin/cupcake cup, to ensure no brown/burn spots on the eggs – worked like a charm!  This recipe is so easy, and the shells peel off like a dream!  If you notice the eggs don’t cook through thoroughly, you may want to up the temp to 350.  For our oven, 325 degrees for 30 minutes had them turning out perfectly!
