Eggsperiment

I like hard boiled eggs. They are a great protein snack, and I enjoy them plain or in salads. What I don’t enjoy is the egg smell that fills the fridge – why do boiled eggs have such a strong odor??
Anyway – I read about baking the eggs as an alternative to boiling and thought I’d try it. Got mixed results. I use farm eggs (truly free range), and popped six of them into a muffin pan, then baked them for 30 minutes at 325*F (after which you cool quickly in ice water). When I pulled them from the oven, one had some cracks (which happens sometimes with boiling), and one had exploded. Well, not really exploded – but popped open.

I’ve had eggs break and leak a bit while boiling, but not pop open like that. Needless to say, that egg will get eaten first! It’s a fine trade-off: the characteristic egg smell is very light.
