Why you should make hard boiled eggs in oven.

Because peeling sucks – Eggs, in general, are a big staple in our house. From adding to salads like this hot girl summer salad recipe to simply eating a flavorful egg salad sandwich, eggs are never far away. Having a quick way to make a big batch without the hassle of delicately peeling pesky shells is a kitchen wonder. 

Big batch – This oven method is a fantastic way to make a big batch of eggs without stovetop boiling or pressure cooking boiled eggs. This crack-and-add-to-a-pan method allows you to cook many eggs at once where the process doesn’t need to be babysat. Note: This sheet pan egg recipe may also be helpful. 

Meal Prep – Although eggs are used in many recipe staples, they are also used often in meal prep. Being able to batch-make and get eggs ready all at once is a great trick. 

Did this TikTok Recipe work?

Yep! But it took us a bit longer to cook our eggs in the oven than the original recipe, as noted below.

Making oven eggs without the shells worked fine and is one of our favorite kitchen hacks. Our only note is that the eggs stuck in the pan a little more than I would have liked, and I had to scrub it to wash it, but it wasn’t the end of the world. Eggs stick. 

I am glad I just get to avoid that whole ice water bath thing! 

Where did no peel eggs come from?

This no peel boiled egg hack that produces a creamy egg yolk is from TikTok Creator and user @JaimeFielding. You can see all her nutrition tips on her channel. See the full “no peel eggs” video below! 


  • vegetable oil
  • 8 eggs – Egg sizes shouldn’t vary this recipe too much in the oven method. 
  • water

How to make No Peel Hard Boiled Eggs

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 and spread a small amount of vegetable oil (about a teaspoon) into the bottom of a loaf pan. Use a pastry brush to coat the bottom and sides of the pan with vegetable oil.
  2. Crack eight eggs in the pan and place the loaf pan with cracked eggs into a 9×13 baking dish.
  3. Fill the large 9 x13 baking dish 2/3rds full of cold water. This means your egg pan is sitting inside the pan with water.

  1. Place the pan on the oven rack and bake for 30 minutes or until the eggs are hard-boiled to the texture of your liking.
  2. Let stand for 5 minutes to let the eggs cool before using a spatula to loosen the edge and remove the egg loaf from the pan. Chop eggs as desired.

  • Bake eggs for 30 minutes or until eggs are hard boiled.
  • Let eggs stand for 5 minutes before using a spatula to loosen the edge and remove the eggs from the pan.
  • Chop eggs as desired. 



Note on timing – When we did this trick the second time using a different pan, our eggs took 40 minutes.
Also, we did test this how with spray nonstick oil and it leaves some of the oil ON the eggs. That being said, the eggs slid out with no stick spray. Just be aware that the nonstick spray oil will settle while cooking and can be confused with the egg whites looking raw on top.

  1. Excellent 🤗 recipe! I give it 5 stars.No peeling ,easy peesie.Loved it will make it again.Infact right now .Thanks so much!!!!💓

  2. That is a complete waste of time!

    Small pyrex ramekins, and STEAM them on the stove.

    1. Trisha Haas says:

      I am not sure why its a waste of time. Small ramekins and steam them? That’s not much different than just hard boiling eggs in water. For many people, being able to crack 6-10 eggs and cook at one time is a time saver for salads and to enjoy boiled eggs without shells easily. While there are a lot of ways to boil an egg (or really do any recipe) its not really a comparison to suggest steamed ramekins and an oven baked hard boiled no shell egg recipe.

    2. This is for large batches. Vs one egg at a time. Dont be negative because this isn’t your favorite way to do it. There is nothing wrong with the recipe

  3. Love not having to peel hard boiled eggs!! I used a glass loaf pan and had minimal eggs sticking to the bottom. My number one go to now for hard boiled eggs. Thank you!

  4. Linda Tochtrop says:

    Any tips on saving any extra eggs in the fridge? How about freezing the finished eggs?

    1. Trisha Haas says:

      You CAN freeze boiled eggs, but I would not recommend it. They get watery and wierd textured when unfrozen. As far as saving, the shell protects eggs longer so without a shell, its on borrowed time. You need to place in an airtight container and consume within a week.

  5. If I don’t have a loaf pan, but don’t want to do more than 8 eggs, can I use a different type pan? Round cake pan or something? I really want to try this but don’t want to buy a loaf pan if I don’t have to. Thank you!

    1. Trisha Haas says:

      Hi Candy, honestly I have not tried it in another pan but understand not wanting to purchase another one. I dont imagine it would be much different in a round pan as long as you keep the depth about the same. You may have to monitor the time depending on the size of your pan.

  6. Kathy Schmidt says:

    Cooked eggs 40 minutes and still not as hard boiled as I like. If try this again will to have to cook longer. I thought as they sat in the warm water to cool down they might finish cooking. I did like the ease of not peeling the eggs though.

    1. Trisha Haas says:

      Thank you for your feedback Kathy! Yes, for sure ovens and pans all vary a little (and honestly the size of eggs too). Hopefully you find your timing on the consistency that is perfect for you.


  7. Made this today for egg salad sandwiches and it was so much easier and faster! The only changes I made was to use parchment paper instead of spraying with non stick spray and I cooked 5 minutes longer for a more cooked egg yolk. I just grabbed paper after I left it to sit in pan for 5 minutes and flipped it on a cutting board and pulled off paper. Easy clean!!!

    1. Trisha Haas says:

      Oooh, love the parchment paper idea!! Thanks for the suggestion, Ill give that a shot!


  8. Iris Do ohoe says:

    Can this be done in the microwave?

    1. Trisha Haas says:

      In theory yes…but it would take some testing.

  9. Sherry Childers says:

    Yes I will try this egg recipes
