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.

  1. Looking forward to trying this recipe. Wondering if the ingredients could be mixed the night before and left in the refrigerator overnight, then popped in the oven while getting ready for work…any thoughts?

    1. Yes, you can mix the ingredients together and refrigerate the mixture. In the morning, bake as directed.

    This is brilliant. I cook everyday for my Gran and this recipe is a great base for so many other things (by pinching people’s tweaks). Thank you so much

  3. 4 stars
    Thank you for sharing ! Followed your recipe exactly , buttered ramekin and baked for 18 min in my small counter oven. Nice flavor and endless possibilities for the next time !

  4. Great as posted. Two eggs were a bit much for me. Next time I’ll try cutting the recipe down to half of the ingredients and shorten the bake time some.

  5. 5 stars
    Wonderful little cheese soufflé!! Perfect as written, and so much easier than a souffle.
    The second time I made it I added a dash of garlic salt, a sprinkle of chives and a tiny dab of left-over cream cheese. Would be great with a salad for dinner also.

    1. Had already decided to try the recipe but your comment cinched the deal. I get fresh eggs from a friend and always lookin for easy dinner ideas. Thankumuchly!

  6. I only found this site last night, but I plan to come back often. So I tried the Easy Cheesy Baked Egg. I didn’t want to fry bacon so I used 2 T. of left over Turkey Taco meat and cheese. It turned out great. The meat seasoned the egg perfectly. Thanks for creating this site. Love, love, love it.

    1. Hi Del,

      I’m so happy you found us! I love how you “tweaked” the recipe to use what you had in your fridge – always a great idea, especially in this recipe. Thanks for writing!

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

      I cooked mine in the toaster oven. They came out fine. Just use bake. The 1st one I wasn’t paying attention until I smelled it, browned rather nicely in less than 2 minutes. After I switched to bake it was all goodness.

  9. 5 stars
    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.
