Hard-boiled eggs are a versatile treat. In addition to the countless recipes you can create with them, there's another way to make hard-boiled eggs that doesn't involve hot water. What's perhaps the best part is that this hack also allows you to make the eggs in a large batch, which is perfect for a gathering or meal-prepping.

According to Food Network, hard-boiled eggs can actually be made in the oven. All you have to do is preheat the oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit, place a whole egg in each cup in a muffin tin, bake them for 30 minutes, remove the tin, and then place the eggs in an ice water bath until they're cool enough to peel.

We dare say this might be even easier than boiling the eggs on the stovetop? With this method, you don't have to keep an eye on the flame or worry about doing multiple batches if you're making hard-boiled eggs for a crowd. You simply pop the eggs in the oven and let them do their thing.

Now, we're off to make some deviled eggs that will last us the rest of the week.
