Baked eggs have a special little spot in my fridge that constantly gets refilled.
Admittedly that spot changes all of the time because I share the fridge with three other people so items move as fast as the Jews. I am one by blood so I can mock this.
Every time I feel lacking in nutrients or a deep hunger craving hits I can just take one out, salt it/paprika it and then pop it right inside me. They also can be blissfucked into an egg salad or stuffed into a raw avocado. They’re especially great when you get tipsy and all food, even Taco Bell food, suddenly seems appealing.
Those mind barriers dropping. I swear I could help ADHD drop those horrid procrastinating fears by convincing society to let us be drunk all the time. I’ll even swear on dark raspberry chocolate laced in broccoli (cuz who cares if that dies?)
Eating a baked egg gives you one of those life moments where you have to remember back to your past self and shake your head with little glares. How have I not been baking a dozen perfect eggs into my mouth for so many years (or minutes depending on your age of course…what? We have baby robots by now somewhere)?
Admittedly I’ve still had the white stick to the shell in about a 15thish of the eggs I’ve peeled. Those moments are still far more rare than my boiling egg days.
What will truly have you leaving boiling eggs to the friend zone is that baking eggs is far less timely and you are brought to full completion far more often. I mean the eggs are.
Eggs are that food everyone agrees is healthy, almost. It is closer than the agreement about all other foods so let’s just count it.
It turns out the yolks actually have the most nutrients though, so please don’t just eat the whites. If you are that odd then please send me the yolks and I’ll send some calorie free water to you in compensation.
Baked Eggs Necessities:
A Cupcake/Muffin Pan
Eggs (I trust Happy Egg Co and my farmer’s market for delicious mouth and mind eggs)
For the Love of Baked Eggs:
- Turn your oven to 320 degrees
- Wait for your oven to reach 320 degrees
- Put your eggs into a cupcake or muffin tin (however many you want) and put them into the oven.
- Go play an ARAM for 30 minutes, or read a book. (Let the eggs bake for 30 minutes, but at 26 minutes prepare an ice bath)
- Take eggs out of the oven and use tongs
- to immediately put the eggs into an ice bath. Turn them into a painting at this point.
- Wait until cool enough to handle and transfer to fridge. You can peel them now and store but I like to keep them in the shell for self pleasure and it makes me feel like they last longer.
