    • SHELL SECRET. It’s very common for the shells to get brown speckles as they bake. Don’t worry! Once they’re soaked in water, the brown spots usually disappear.
    • EGGSCELLENT TO KNOW. When baking eggs, it is common to discover a dark spot on the white of the egg where the egg touched the pan. The paper or silicone baking cups help reduce this harmless discoloration. If you do find it, simply cut it away, and your egg will be as good as new.
    • PERFECT YOLKS. Since oven temps can vary slightly, this technique takes a little practice. If your first batch of eggs has a green ring around the yolk, they have overcooked and you’ll want to reduce the baking time by 1-2 minutes on the next batch.
