Hard-boiled Easter eggs in a Crockpot with no water

Yes, you read that correctly.

I just hard-boiled eggs in a crockpot using no water.  I found out about doing it at Moms With Crockpots

I was so intrigued because I dislike boiling eggs to dye for Easter. They always crack which totally ruins keeping even dozens of eggs to color! I had seen the option of baking them to hard-boil them, but this seemed so much easier!

I ran a test batch. Here's the basics.

Put your eggs in your crockpot.

You cook them for two hours on high.

And you get this. Yummy hard-boiled eggs

Now, here is one issue I saw.

See that little burned spot on the side of the egg. That's where it sat in the crockpot. BUT I think if you just stirred them up and moved them around occasionally during the process it wouldn't happen.  

I am definitely going to do the rest of them this way this year and FOREVER!!

Hmm...interesting. Now I HARD-STEAM my eggs. We have FRESH hen eggs that can be hard to peel, so I steam them for 20 minutes and drop them in an ice bath until cool. Perfectly cooked and easy to peel!

I put a little salt in the water with my eggs, softly boil for 12 minutes, and I have no problem with cracking.
