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.
These ready to eat topped with cheese.
Baked Eggs by Everyone
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Butter muffin tins liberally.
- Crack an egg in each tin.
- I used 3 slices of cooked bacon chopped and topped each egg with a small amout .
- Place a generous drop of Frank’s Hot Sauce on each egg.
- Bake for about 15 min.
- 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.
- Bake for about 3-4 more minutes.
- Run a spatula around the sides to loosen and pop them right out.
- 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.
- 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
- The list is endless
