Baked Eggs 3 Ways

  • Tomato and Spinach Baked Eggs
  • Spicy Jalapeno Avocado Baked Eggs
  • Creamy Cheese Baked Eggs


One of my go to ingredients when I am out of ideas is eggs! My family loves eggs and we prepare it in several different ways. From simple sunny side up for breakfast to curries for lunch or dinner and then occasionally we go for Baked Eggs. This is such a fun way to incorporate eggs in your menu without making too much effort.

KEY Ingredients needed for Baked Eggs:

  • Butter mainly to grease the pan
  • Heavy cream – This will create the custard like texture to the Baked Eggs
  • Salt and Pepper for flavor
  • Eggs

Baking Time:

The Baking time will depend a lot of how you like the texture of your eggs. So keep an eye as you bake it in the oven. I like my eggs soft, so I don’t cook it for too long. Also depends on the size of the oven proof dish you are using.

If you don’t like soft eggs, you want to cook it a bit longer until the yolk is set.

Flavors Choice:

Because baked eggs get cooked so fast you want to pick things that doesn’t need too much cooking time.

If you want to add onion and mushroom, then definitely stir fry these two separately in a pan before adding it to the oven proof dish along with the other key ingredients.

To make it easy and fuss free I made it three easiest way possible. The only extra cooking I did is crisping up some bacon strips to add on top. And that’s mainly because my son loves bacon.

Here are three different flavors I used

I used these individual size cast iron skillets 

Tomato and Spinach

Cherry tomatoes along with baby spinach is layered along with cream, salt, pepper and two eggs. I had a tiny amount of leftover spinach pesto, which I added in dollops here and there. Grated some parmesan cheese on the baked eggs.

Spicy Jalapeno Avocado Baked Eggs

Roughly sliced avocado and thinly sliced Jalapeno, layered along with cream, salt, pepper and two eggs. For extra spicy flavor, sprinkle some smoked paprika and squeeze few dashes of siracha sauce here and there.

Creamy Cheese Baked Eggs

This is simplest one perfect for kids where apart from the key ingredients, add some grated cheese. And finish the baked eggs by topping some crispy bacons and grated some parmesan cheese.

All these baked eggs took the same time to bake about 17 minutes at 375 F

Keep in mind as the dish cools down, it starts to set further, so if you are like me who likes the texture softer and runnier then keep an eye and take I out at 15 minutes.

Can you prepared this in MICROWAVE

YES! Definitely possible and much faster too. One egg in a ramekin size bowl will cook in 1 minute 30 second on high. You have to cover with a microwave plate and you might need to cook another 30 second if it looks raw.

Making it in Stovetop

You have to follow the method of water bath. Prepare your individual bowls with all the ingredients. Then place the bowls in a big pot and pour hot water to reach halfway to the bowl. Then cover the pot and let it simmer in medium heat for 10 to 15 minutes. Remember to not pour too much water and remember not to cook in high heat that water starts to boil. You want to make sure the water doesn’t get inside the egg bowls.

Easy Brunch Idea that even kids love! #foodphotography #foodstyling #easyrecipeideas #eggs #bakedeggs

Irrespective of what method you choose or flavors, it’s a great way to enjoy a fast meal with less effort. A treat for people enjoys eggs. Soft or fully cooked.
