Baked Eggs

Super easy way to make eggs for any meal



  • - 1 egg (or more if you want more than 1)
  • - cheese
  • - butter
  • optional:
  • -pesto
  • -ham
  • -onions
  • -peppers


It's great if you have a ramekin for this because it's just so much easier to make but if you don't have one then start by crafting a little bowl shape out of foil (make sure it's sturdy enough to hold the egg without any spillage). But seriously it's easier (and likely safer) to buy a ramekin, you can get really good ones from those m+s crème brûlée desserts.

butter the ramekin or foil and put a layer of cheese in the bottom.

then crack the egg in and put more cheese on top.

for a more complex meal you could add shredded ham and onions into the mix. Pesto is particularly good, if you have it then try putting a layer on top of the egg which should create a nice crispy pesto coating when cooked.

put your ramekin on a tray in the oven. If you're using the foil then really concentrate on securing it to the tray so it doesn't spill over.

cook the egg for about 12-15 minutes on 180c. Some eggs take longer than others though so keep an eye on it and if you're not sure then you can always stab it with a knife and find out.

when getting the egg out the ramekin will be incredibly hot so maybe take it out and let it cool down for a while.

then you can either eat it out of the ramekin or scoop/tip it out onto a plate.
