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.
Why These Eggs are Awesome
Eggs are a staple in my house, and Mr. FFF and I eat them all. the. Time. I love me a plate of cod scrambled eggs for breakfast, healthy deviled eggs for a party appetizer, and zucchini noodles with pesto fried eggs for dinner! Eggs are such a great way to get your protein intake during the day and there are so many ways to cook and enjoy them! You could do air fryer hard boiled eggs, fried eggs or what I am going to show you today! Today’s recipe is going to show you how to make eggs in the oven quickly and easily, and it’s the PERFECT way to feed eggs to a crowd! Cooking eggs was never so fast and simple, and they make a really healthy breakfast too!
- 12 large eggs (or as many as you want)
Crack each egg into a muffin cavity, being careful not the break the yolk. Sprinkle each with salt and pepper.
Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until the yolk is cooked to your desired consistency. (If they don’t come out the pan right away, just run a butter knife around the edges.)
Health Benefits of 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 it needs to fuel your day! Eggs are a great (and inexpensive) source of protein, along with selenium, vitamins D, B6, B12 and some other important minerals! They also provide some fat that can help increase satiety and make you feel full longer — especially paired with their protein content.
Now that you know the health benefits of eggs, here are their nutrition info.
One egg has only 75 calories, 7g of protein, 5g of fat and zero carbs!
Such a healthy food!
Texture of Baked Eggs
Making your eggs in the oven will result in 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. 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!
What to serve with These Eggs for Breakfast
On the recipe card below, I’m going to show you how to cook eggs in the oven and it is seriously one of the easiest ways to feed your crew. Like I said, these eggs are great to feed a crowd on Thanksgivingor Christmas morning (or ANY morning, for that matter) for breakfast. Serve them alongside some snickerdoodle baked French toast casserole, whole wheat vegan pancakes or even some eggnog waffles and you will have the perfect protein-packed addition to your meal!
You could also just make them for any old Saturday morning breakfast, served up with some sweet potato hash browns for a complete meal.
They also make a great high-protein snack for any time of the day!
When learning how to cook eggs in the oven, the most important piece of information to take note of is how long they should be in the oven! I recommend cooking them for about 10 to 12 minutes, as that will leave the yolk a bit runny. Add or remove a minute to ensure the yolk is done to your liking.

I know eggs are in the dairy aisle which makes it confusing. BUT, eggs come from chicken not cows. This means that eggs are NOT dairy!
how to store oven-cooked eggs
Let your eggs cool completely. Put them in an airtight container or a resealable bag and then store them in the fridge. They should keep for up to 5 days. You can also freeze the eggs for up to six months. When it comes time to eat, let the eggs thaw in the fridge overnight. Regardless of which storage method you choose, be sure to inspect the eggs thoroughly before eating them. In particular, smell them. If they seem a bit off, throw them out.
