  1. Carrie says:

    Jane – I think it would still taste fine without the dill. However, the dill really adds a great flavor to this recipe so I do recommend that you include it if you can!

  2. Jane says:

    Will it taste okay if I don’t have still?

  3. Carrie says:

    Ross – You can check out how to boil eggs in the oven on this post.

  4. Ross says:

    I wantt to know how to “BOil eggs in the oven”??

  5. Carrie says:

    Yes, the time is after the eggs have been boiled. Thank you.

  6. Donna Hall says:

    How is this recipe considered eating on a dime? It also states 15 minutes, is that before you boil the eggs?
