I made the most amazing cheesecake a few days ago. It had oreos as the base, and I had swirled in some nutella to give the cake a nice marble effect. I swear to god it was the best thing I've ever eaten, it was lovely - plus I made so much of it! I had the last slice last night, but now me and my fiance are craving more.

I've been trying for a while to get the oven method of hard-boiling eggs right, because the normal recipe overcooks them with my oven. Finally got it working and I enjoyed a perfect hard-boiled egg. Next up, oven-baked deviled eggs!

That seems like a lot of energy, in the form of heat, to hard boil eggs. Any reason you chose the oven over the stove top?

Because the stove completely sucks. Plus, we don't have anything that will safely put eggs in and take them out of a pot of water without cracking them.

I have stove issues, so I get that. As for cracking eggs, they usually don't crack if you put them in the pan first, add cold water, heat to a boil, and take off the heat for about 20 minutes, then run under cold water.

What temperature for the oven and do you put them in water or do you bake/roast them?

I don't mean cracking during cooking, I mean that I have to drop them in and out of the water - especially the hot water - and the egg ends up hitting the bottom and cracking.

For the oven, the recipe I found was a dry bake - you can put them directly on the rack if you want, though you can also put them in a muffin tin. The recipe said to do 30 minutes at 325 to 350. However, my oven runs hot, so I have to do 275 for 25 minutes. Took a few tries to figure that out. However, it comes out far better than any of my boiled eggs ever have - so easy to peel that it practically slides off instead of chipping at the shell for a few minutes.

I think VDT is getting at the fact that, depending on how you prepare them, you don't actually have to drop the eggs at all- you can put them in the pan first, fill it with water, boil it, let it cool, and drain it, and then take the eggs out once they're cool. I'm kind of surprised that you can even do them in an oven though... I may have to try that, just to see if there's a noticeable difference!

I don't really like the idea of leaving the eggs for that long in warm water. Plus, I'm lazy.

It might take a few tries to figure out where exactly the oven temperature needs to be and how long to cook. My first few batches were extremely rubbery on the outsides, though the yolks were cooked very well. I lowered the heat and shortened the time and it worked. I'd recommend putting one egg in when you're baking something else at that temperature, if you can, so you're not wasting a whole batch of eggs if they're cooked wrong, and you don't turn the oven on for a single egg.

A roasted egg is part of Passover. I think I made one once myself, but I don't remember actually eating it afterwards. It probably went in when something else was baking.
