The third video of my learn to cook series is baked eggs. If cooking eggs sound intimidating, I promise it isn’t. This recipe is part of my Learn to cook series, where I am cooking every recipe out of my old home economics cookbook. These baked eggs are a great recipe for breakfast.
So we have all heard of fried eggs, or scrambled eggs, but have you heard of the baked egg? This has to be one of the easiest ways to make eggs. It is also one of the tastiest ways to make fried eggs in the oven.
I have to tell you that this baked eggs recipe has endless possibilities. You can make these with butter, you could use heavy whipping cream, some people even use things like leftover pasta sauce to bake the eggs. For this recipe, we will stick to the simplest version of these eggs.
You are going to let the eggs cook in the oven in a bit of butter. This recipe only takes about 10 – 15 minutes to make. So this is a perfect recipe to make when you are trying to get out of the door in the morning and want to save some money by making breakfast at home.
The eggs are simply seasoned with a little salt and pepper. If you make a bit of toast, you will have a hearty breakfast in no time.
If you wanted to get fancy with this recipe, you could sprinkle some fresh herbs on these baked eggs when you remove them from the oven. Fresh herbs I would recommend would be a little parsley or even chives.

Baked Eggs Recipe
- 2 teaspoons butter
- 2 eggs
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- 1/8 crushed black pepper
- Preheat an oven to 325 degrees. Use a small dish to bake the eggs in. Melt the butter. You can do this by placing the dish you will cook the eggs in the oven while it heats to the proper temperature. Crack two eggs into the dish gently so as not to break the yolk. Season with salt and pepper. Bake eggs in the oven for 10 to 12 minutes.
