Peter Cottontail will be hopping down the bunny trail soon with tons of eggs, and if your kids are like mine they want to color eggs too! I have never been great at hard boiling eggs. I know they aren't difficult but I am always cracking them. So, I decided I would try to put them in the crockpot.
I placed 12 eggs in my 6 qt crockpot for a test run. (No Water) I have see the oven method and wanted to try it this way.
I cooked them on high for 2 hours. After 2 hours I pulled the eggs out and put them in a bowl of ice water. That helps them stop cooking and helps loosen the shell for peeling. These eggs turned out the best of any boiled egg I have ever made! I don't think I will ever go back to the other way.
You can "boil" as many eggs that will fit in your crockpot this way!
