If you want to make bulk hard boiled eggs, or want a simple recipe you can try baking them in the shell rather than boiling you can always use your oven to make baked hard boiled eggs.

Simply put eggs in a cupcake pan and bake at 325-350 (depending on oven) for 30 minutes.

When you do this, the shell will get little brown burn spots – don’t worry about it, they will disappear after the next step.

Once you are done baking them, use tongs to put eggs in a large bowl of ice water. This stops the cooking of the egg.

After about 10 minutes you can pull them put and peel them.

Before you comment that it takes longer than boiling, please realize I know it takes longer, but it is easier, and I doing a lot of eggs at once it is more economical.

Since Genny eats eggs for breakfast on her diet, this method of hard “boiling” saves her a lot of time and effort.  That makes it worth it.

I would suggest you try these oven baked hard boiled eggs the next time you want a hard egg.  Its even something you can do with golden eggs.

I want to share ShopDogSam’s video on How to Peel A Hard Boiled Egg With Duck Tape

Wala Shazam – This borders on alchemy. I just found this guy on YouTube, and think he is funny as well as smart.

Get two strips of standard (non fancy camouflage kind) duct tape and affix the tape around each end of the egg, leaving a small gap in the center of the egg and ensuring the two pieces don’t touch.

The next step on How to Peel A Hard Boiled Egg With Duck Tape is to crack the egg shell all the way around the egg.  Work the cracks all the way around the egg.

Once the egg shell is broken loose and the shell is craked, simply pull on the tape and the egg shells will come out leaving a clean boiled egg.

Now it seems like this way is not the most efficient method of peeling eggs as you have to buy the duct-tape, but I don’t think its as bad as the poor hippie country boy jokes about in the video.

However, efficiency aside, this makes the peeling process easier and cleaner, so there is a trade off that many people will gladly do.

Personally, I like feeding my chickens the old egg shells so I don’t use this method, but I love his humor (I think it is intentional humor) So I wanted to share his video.

Hard Shoot Target Review

Gear Review: Hard Shoot Target
Buy at Amazon

The kind folks at Clarksville Guns and Archery have kindly donated this Hard Shoot Target for demonstration purposes.  This is a unique target as it is a photo, with dye packs instead of scoring lines.  You can hit this target over and over, but you are not successful until you hit the dye.

I think this is a really good idea, and quite useful on a training range, however, the dye is very thick, and if you are not careful it can make a mess.

Because of this some ranges do not allow the use of hard shot targets, which is a shame, because I feel that when used properly, they make wonderful training tools – as they teach to shoot until you get a stop – watch the background for innocents (their are several innocent bystanders printed on the various targets), and to make situationally appropriate shots.

It was pretty fun shooting this target, and the realism is pretty good for a static target.  I am sure the argument could be made that the dye packs and the photographic targets without obvious scoring rings, and bystanders in the background make this a very effective training target.
