Never Peel Eggs Again with These TikTok Baked Egg Hacks

The breakfast sandwich possibilities are endless.

If you've ever peeled a hard-boiled egg, you've felt the utter frustration of trying to shave off the little bits of shell stuck to the egg. You might've even peeled away chunks of the boiled egg white with it, wasting precious pieces of your breakfast. Thanks to TikTok, we won't be peeling eggs again anytime soon.

Recently, a creator's baked hard boiled egg hack took the world by storm. In her video preparing eggs for egg salad, she bakes the eggs in the oven instead of boiling, developing possibly the easiest, hands-off egg cooking tactic we've ever seen. After seeing two versions of these baked eggs trending online (hard-boiled and scrambled), I knew I had to give the method a try in two of our favorite Allrecipes egg dishes. Here are the results of TikTok's best baked egg hacks.

TikTok Hard Boiled Egg Hack

For egg salad, potato salad, or any other reason you might need chopped hard-boiled eggs, this technique is the way to go. In the original video, the creator uses 7 eggs, but the same cooking style should work with more or less.

Crack the eggs directly into a greased loaf pan. Place the loaf pan in the center of a 9x13 baking dish, then pour water in the dish until it reaches the same height as the eggs. Carefully move this to a 350 degree F oven to bake for 30 minutes. Once cooked through, use a spatula to remove them from the pan.

To my surprise, this simple cooking trick worked flawlessly. I expected the eggs to become rubbery, but they were just as soft and tender as they would've been from a stovetop boil. The yolks were set, but not overcooked, and the thin, rectangular shape was perfect for turning out onto a cutting board and giving a quick chop before mixing into a delicious egg salad.

TikTok Baked Scrambled Egg Hack

If you're making breakfast for a crowd, this scrambled egg hack will make your morning a breeze. This method allows you to make dozens of scrambled eggs in minutes, without keeping you tied to the stovetop. I used 20 eggs to test this recipe, but you can use up to 30 eggs with similar results.

In a large bowl, whisk together 20 eggs, ¼ cup milk, and 2 teaspoons of salt. Pour this mixture directly onto a greased rimmed baking sheet, and bake at 325 degrees F for 20 minutes.

In no time, you'll have an entire sheet of scrambled eggs ready for breakfast tacos or breakfast sandwiches. Bake a sheet of bacon at the same time, and the whole breakfast will come together seamlessly.
