PIN How to Cook Eggs in the Oven
It’s almost HOLIDAY SEASON
Which means it’s time to have brunch! And you know what?
Cooking eggs for a bunch of people on a stove top, without having to make scrambled eggs, is INCREDIBLY HARD.
And so? OVEN BAKED EGGS are here to rescue you!
Think of them kind of like egg muffins, but just way simpler because you don’t have to add any fillings! Just crack and GO.
I love eggs!
Not only is cooking eggs in the oven an easy way to feed a crowd, it’s an easy way to give your body the nourishment that it needs to fuel your day!
Eggs are a great (and inexpensive) source of protein, along with Vitamin B12, selenium, Vitamin D, B6, B 12 and some other important minerals! They also provide some fat that can help increase satiation and make you feel full longer! Especially paired with their protein content.
HELLO starting the day strong!
Texture of Oven Baked Eggs
Eggs that are cooked in the oven have a similar texture to hard boiled eggs, but you can make the egg yolks a LITTLE bit softer. However, they will never be as runny as a fried egg. But, the beauty of baked eggs is that there is no shell to deal with! Simply slide the eggs out of the pan and you are ready to eat!
How to Cook Eggs In the Oven
This is probably the easiest process but here is the breakdown:
Spray your muffin tin generously with cooking spray. Eggs get sticky when they bake, so you want to spray your pan well or you will have a mess on your hands!
Crack the eggs gently into each muffin cavity, trying to leave the yolk intact.
Sprinkle each egg with a little bit of salt and pepper
Bake in a 400-degree oven until the egg yolk is cooked to your liking!
VOILA! You know how to bake eggs!
How Long to Bake Eggs?
The length of time that you cook your eggs will really depend on how you like your yolks. I like mine mostly set but with just a TINY bit of softness in the very center that is still thick but not totally cooked, if that makes sense. So, I like to cook mine for about 10-12 minutes.
Breakfast or snack!
Like we said these eggs are great to feed a crowd on Thanksgiving or Christmas morning for breakfast. Serve them alongside some snickerdoodle baked French toast casserole, whole wheat vegan pancakes or even some eggnog waffles and you have the perfect protein packed addition to your meal!
BUT, they also make a perfect high protein snack, which we talked about in how to increase protein intake 15 ways! When you bake ‘em, they are portable so you can back them to work, or even take them to the gym so that you can change up your usually protein shake if you feel like chewing your food after a workout sometimes ????
You may just never go back to fried eggs again.
