Breakfast just got easy thanks to these EASY BAKED EGGS!

Like so many of our posts, it all began with the most basic of ideas: let’s do an easy egg recipe. In true Weekend at the Cottage fashion, we crafted it so it would be as easy as possible. EASY BAKED EGGS are guaranteed to please!

As you read on, just remember – the baked eggs are a cinch so keep serving them simple too. Serve them with nothing more than freshly squeezed juice and coffee or tea if you care for either.

If you do want to add more excitement to your morning go ahead and zip up our CHERRY MINT or APPLE CARROT BANANA SMOOTHIES. Lastly maybe some kinda fresh fruit. Since you’re already using the broiler, what about GRILLED GRAPEFRUIT? Let your imagination run wild.

Back to these EASY BAKED EGGS. Here are a few tips:

Ingredients for Easy Baked Eggs

WHAT YOU’LL NEED:

As you can see, nothing complicated or tough to find for this recipe. We do include the fresh herbs as an optional item for garnish. Feel free to gather whichever fresh herbs you have on hand. We tried the recipe with parsley, dill and chives but basil, sage, thyme and cilantro will work well too!

THE DISH

You’re going to need shallow, oven-safe dishes to bake the eggs. I found the ones we used on Amazon, links are listed below. Ramekins will work just as well. When preparing, you’ll need one dish for each guest. We baked two eggs in each, but could easily have done three if you’re very hungry.

Two eggs c racked into small bowls assist with the quick transfer to the heated baking dishes.

THE EGGS

As in all our recipes, we’re calling for extra-large eggs, and if you can track down organic ones, all the better. For best results, start the recipe with your eggs at room temperature and don’t skip the important step of cracking the eggs into separate bowls beforehand – this is key to minimize transfer time into the heated casserole dishes.

Toast soldiers are toasted white bread cut into thin strips, served as we have in an attractive bowl.

MAKE A TOAST

We decided to toast up slices of a favourite white bread but all breads will work. Trying these EASY BAKED EGGS with brioche, challah and multi-grain breads will be just as tasty and easy!Cutting the toasted slices into strips or ”soldiers” makes them crunchy toast batons for dipping into the soft-cooked eggs and all the accompaniments.

Finally, we envision you serving these EASY BAKED EGGS to your friends and family for a late breakfast or brunch. Although this recipe serves two, you can increase quantities to serve any number of guests. That said, if you’re making this for yourself, and perhaps a significant other, pull out your breakfast tray and serve this as the ultimate breakfast in bed – champagne and orange juice optional but STRONGLY suggested!

EASY BAKED EGGS – a spectacularly delicious breakfast or brunch awaits – make it the start of your next perfect day!
