Baked Eggs to Impress Company!

Being a chicken owner, I have a fondness for eggs–farm fresh, backyard raised eggs with bright yellow yolks and hard to crack shells.

I also love to cook breakfast for guests so I was thrilled to stumble upon a baked egg recipe that is super easy to make and looks a bit ‘fancy’ without much effort. Admit it: It’s nice to have simple recipes that make you look stunning in the kitchen! The original recipe for these baked eggs includes fresh basil, bacon, tomatoes, and cheese. But I’ve come up with several more winning combinations, which are easy to customize for individual tastes without much extra effort.

Preheat the oven to 325. Prepare one ramekin per person by spraying with non-stick cooking spray. Crack one or two eggs into each dish (depending on the appetite of your guests). Pour in a teaspoon of milk on top of the egg–don’t stir, leave the egg whole. Add a sprinkle of salt and pepper. Then the fun variations begin!



For example, a favorite for my guests is chopped fresh basil, chopped fresh tomato, and crumbled feta cheese. Another is chopped fresh cilantro, salsa and pepper jack cheese. Grilled onions, precooked chopped/crumbled bacon, and cheddar cheese is also pretty tasty. As well as using leftover taco meat, re-fried beans with salsa, cheese and sour cream. You get the idea. The possibilities are really endless!



Once you’ve assembled your creations, place in the oven and bake for 12-15 minutes. You want the whites to be cooked and the yolks to be set but not totally firm.



These baked eggs have become my ‘signature’ (and most requested) breakfast meal for guests. Add some hash browns, toast and some sliced fresh fruit and you’ve got a personalized, ‘restaurant’ quality meal without much effort.

If you make these baked eggs for your family and friends, be prepared for Breakfast Hall of Fame and for repeated requests for this recipe in all its endless variations.

    This looks soooooo yummy. I am forgetting I just ate breakfast.

    These look very good and will definately impress guests. For those that won’t eat runny or soft yolks if I stir the egg to mix a little do you think the baking time should be the same or less? I see these at the Easter brunch table this year.

  5. Kerrie says:

    pnycat, I don’t like runny yolks either. I just leave my egg in until it feels like the right ‘done-ness’ when I touch it. That’s another great thing about these eggs–they can be done to each person’s desired consistancy by pulling them out or leaving them in.
    I haven’t tried to scramble them, but I don’t know why that wouldn’t work.

    Great idea! Thank you! I can do this….and at the last minute.

  8. Kenya Cook says:

    At what temperature do you bake these? I’m doing this for breakfast tomorrow!

  9. Rosemeri says:

    Looks yummy. Why wait for breakfast? This would be great for lunch or a light dinner with a salad. Thanks for the ideas.
