Baked Eggs in Muffin Tins

Ready to top with cheese

My students absolutely loved these!!!!  A couple of my friends told me that I should try this recipe in my class.  It is quick and easy!  Just right for a 45 minute class period.  When I started doing a little investigation about baked eggs lo and behold they are everywhere.  I missed out on this one earlier, but now I am on the bandwagon.  Perfect for a quick breakfast.  My students came up with endless ideas making these the almost perfect food.  That is what eggs are anyway – the almost perfect food!  So now go get your muffin tin buttered and cook up some eggs for breakfast.  Store in the refrigerator for up to 5 days (if they last that long) and pop in the microwave for about 30 seconds.  Eggs are a great protein source that will keep you satisfied all morning.

There’s really not a recipe for these.  Just let your imagination go wild.  Think about an omelet made in a muffin tin.  By the way the hardest part of this whole thing is cleaning the muffin tin at the end!

Ready to bake.  If your are wondering I put the bacon in the bottom of this dozen.  I like it better on top of the eggs.

Ready to bake with a drop of hot sauce

These ready to eat topped with cheese.

Ready to Eat

Baked Eggs by Everyone    

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Butter muffin tins liberally.
  3. Crack an egg in each tin.
  4. I used 3 slices of cooked bacon chopped and topped each egg with a small amout .
  5. Place a generous drop of Frank’s Hot Sauce on each egg.
  6. Bake for about 15 min.
  7.  Take out and top with tablespoon of cheese.  I think that white cheese works best.  It has less fat and won’t make your eggs greasy.  I used Monterey Jack and it was delicious, but Swiss was good, too.
  8. Bake for about 3-4 more minutes.
  9. Run a spatula around the sides to loosen and pop them right out.
  10. Baking times will vary greatly depending on your muffin tin and your oven, so check eggs periodically especially if you like them on the soft cooked side.

Other ideas:

  • Make sandwiches using English Muffins or bread that you have cut with a biscuit cutter and toasted
  • Use any type of leftover meat such as taco meat or chopped chicken.
  • Thinly sliced green onions always adds flavor
  • Chopped spinach
  • Chopped peppers
  • Mushrooms
  • The list is endless

Ready!

  1. Leftover ham would be good in these too. I’d put some green chiles in mine.
    I love the flavor of roasted green chiles. Great idea to get some breakfast ready ahead of time. Thanks.
