Toaster Oven "Hard-Boiled" Eggs

Today, I made the greatest discovery in history:  You can make "hard-boiled" eggs in a toaster oven!  For those of you who don't know me personally, I have been known to have eggs explode in the kitchen from trying to hard-boil them in the past, when I decided it was undercooked and I put it in the microwave to finish it (by the way, NEVER do that).  To make the perfect hard-boiled egg, all you need is an oven (or, in my case, a toaster oven).  My toaster oven cooks much more evenly than my standard oven, so I use it for small items.

Turn on your toaster oven to 325 degrees.  Put 3-5 eggs directly on the toaster oven rack.  Place them parallel to the rack, so they don't roll around.  Bake for approximately 30 minutes.



Take the eggs out of the oven and immediately immerse them in ice water.  Leave them to soak for approximately 15 minutes, or until they are cold.



These things are so easy to peel!  However, you can see that this one was a bit scorched on the inside.  It didn't affect the taste whatsoever.



These are the oven rack marks:


I was a bit worried from the scorching, but you can see that, once I sliced it, it is perfectly cooked on the inside.  Now I can make hard-boiled eggs without having to worry about explosions in my kitchen, and so can you!
