How Long to Cook Eggs in Oven


We can all agree that eggs are the gold standard for breakfast. Whether you’re scrambling, frying or baking them up, eggs are a tasty and easy way to start your day. But how do you cook eggs in the oven? Well, if you’re like most people I know who don’t have enough time in the morning to make breakfast (me included), then using your oven is an easy way to get the job done quickly. Plus, it’s easier than trying this at home:

Soft-boiled eggs

  • How long to cook eggs in the oven depends on their size.
  • Soft-boiled eggs are done when the yolks are still soft and runny, but you don’t want them to be too runny or they’ll break apart as soon as you crack into them. The whites should be set but still translucent, not rubbery or dry at all.
  • If your egg is too large, it may take longer than 5 minutes; if it’s too small (like a quail egg), then less time will be needed–just enough so that there’s no liquid left when pierced with a knife.*

Medium-boiled eggs


Medium-boiled eggs are cooked for 10 minutes, then removed from the oven and placed in a bowl of ice water. After 3 minutes, remove the eggs from their bath and peel them before serving.

Hard-boiled eggs

  • Hard-boiled eggs
  • Cooking time depends on size of eggs. For example, if you have small to medium sized eggs, then 10 minutes is enough for them to be cooked. However if you are using large sized ones then 15 minutes of cooking time would be needed for them to become hard boiled.

You can cook eggs in the oven by setting a timer and not opening the oven door during cooking.

  • Set a timer for about 10 minutes, then place your eggs on top of a baking sheet. You can cook them with or without butter or oil, but if you’re using butter or oil, make sure to use something that won’t burn at high heat (like coconut oil).
  • Place them in preheated 350F degrees Fahrenheit over medium-high heat until they reach your desired level of doneness (about 3-4 minutes will yield soft yolks; 5-6 minutes will yield hard ones).


In conclusion, you can cook eggs in the oven if you set a timer and don’t open the oven door during cooking.
