I know that protein is the best way to start my day. But sometimes, it’s easier to grab the box of cereal or throw a slice of bread into the toaster. But not anymore. This recipe for Baked Eggs is so easy and versatile that I can even prepare almost a week’s worth of breakfasts on a lazy Sunday afternoon.

If I’m feeling creative, I cheese these up with all my favorites. If I want to go more of an omelet route, I add some cooked sausage or ham. And if I’m really on target with my health goals, I add some veggies.

For a weekend brunch with girlfriends, I like to serve these Baked Eggs with a savory Hash Brown Casserole and sweet Banana Split Crepes. And if I’m feeling egg-stra, I whip up a Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Shake.

Serving Suggestions

These taste best straight from the oven (although make sure they’re not too hot). Grab one for breakfast on the go, serve them with fruit for lunch, or have breakfast for dinner with some grilled vegetables.

  • 12 eggs

FAQs

What cheeses do you suggest?

I love feta, but you can add cheddar, creamy mozzarella, or even a little blue cheese.

When are the eggs officially done?

When the whites are set, but the yolks are just a bit gooey, the eggs are ready. If you like a firmer yolk, let it bake for an extra minute or two.

Can I use egg whites or fresh eggs?

Yes to both! Just keep an eye on the baking time with the egg whites.
