Baked Eggs

I like to think of cheesy baked eggs as sort of a mini crustless quiche or breakfast casserole.

Although I like to bake my eggs with just a little cheese, you can really add any ingredient that you like. Consider making them with cheese and bacon or with cheese and spinach.

How To Make Baked Eggs

Step 1

Butter a small ramekin and set it aside while you whisk together 2 eggs, cream, shredded Cheddar cheese, Parmesan cheese and a pinch of salt and pepper.

Step 2

Pour the egg mixture into the buttered ramekin and bake it in a preheated oven for 15-18 minutes.

That’s it!

Light, fluffy and so tasty.

This breakfast recipe is incredibly easy, super fast, and totally foolproof. It takes just 5 minutes to throw everything together!

What Size Baking Dish Is Best When Making Cheesy Baked Eggs For One?

In this Cheesy Baked Eggs recipe, I use an oven-safe ramekin that holds 8-ounces. For best results, use a dish of similar size.

    I tried this today and it was delicious! I made 2 separate recipes and cooked one in the conventional oven and one in the toaster oven. They both came out great – in the conventional oven it took 17 minutes until done and in the toaster oven I dropped the temp to 375 and it took 19 minutes. We loved them!

    Cheesy Baked Eggs! This was absolutely delicious! Super easy to make. I will have to make this again for my husband on the weekend. I know he will love it too! Panera Bread makes a similar dish but your recipe is so much better! I am getting ready to make the oatmeal cookies. I have made them a couple of times. They are delicious as well ! Thank you for the recipes!
