STEP TWO: Pour water into each cavity to fill about ⅓ of the way.

PRO TIP: Make sure there is enough water in each cavity, as this helps the eggs not have scorch marks on them!

STEP THREE: Place the muffin tin in the oven and bake eggs for 30 minutes.

STEP FOUR: Remove eggs and place immediately into ice water for 2 to 3 minutes.

PRO TIP: The hard-boiled eggs peel easiest when peeled under cold water (right in the ice bath works great) after just a few minutes in the ice bath.
