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.

Here’s how these baked eggs come together…

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.

  2. Joanie,
    This was a wonderful recipe. I doubled it for two of us and used separate baking dishes and it was wonderful and we both loved it and will use it again for breakfast, or for a light dinner with a salad. Thanks so much for your wonderful recipes and blog.

  3. The baked eggs were easy and delicious! Baked in about 18 minutes in my oven. Made for myself and spouse with bacon, tomato on the side.

  4. Great recipe, Joanie! I added a pinch of nutmeg. I wanted to let you know, the bake time for me is 30 minutes. Something for your readers to be aware of.
