Oven Baked Eggs

We don't necessarily need a recipe to cook eggs, but I like to add variety to our meal planning since my ingredient options are somewhat limited. An egg doesn't have to be just an egg. (Which is good, because we have our own hens helping us out with eggs.)  I also love this "recipe" because it allows me to cook a lot of eggs at once in the oven and have them all come out perfectly at the same time. (Or you can make just one.) It's great for breakfast, lunch, or dinner -- in fact I end up making them for dinner most often. Our kiddos love baked eggs served with just about anything! You can add other bits of ingredients to them too. This is just the base recipe. Here goes!

Oven Baked Eggs
Butter or oil
Grated cheese

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.  Spray oil or apply butter into cupcake tins (one cup per egg).  Crack one egg, whole, into each cup. Add 1 TBS milk to each cup. Sprinkle each cup with salt and cheese. (Do not use pepper if you are sensitive to BOP!)  

 Bake in oven for 20-25 minutes, depending on how soft you want the yokes. 

Use a metal spoon to careful loosen and remove each egg onto a serving plate. 

These eggs are delicious served with just about anything!  Our favorites are toast and juice, or bacon and pancakes.  Hashbrowns and ham.  They would even be great for steak and eggs, although I haven't done it yet.  For a light brunch, I can imagine them being tasty with a fruit bowl and hot cereal. Enjoy! 


  1. I never thought of baking eggs like this!
