Individual Baked Eggs

Spokes 1

"A very easy idea with a minimum of fuss or muss for any number of people. Individual Baked Eggs surrounded by a strip of bacon, and topped with a square of cheese. These eggs take on a very pleasing flavor just by baking instead of cooking them in the more conventional manner. Great not having splatters all over, and being able to do 12 or more eggs at one time."

This recipe is great for a crowd! I liked it so much, I decided to play around a little to make it a LAZY morning breakfast for TWO (or even one). I sprayed Butter Flavored Pam into small glass ramekins, placed 2 slices of precooked “ready” bacon into each cup. I dropped the egg in and MICROWAVED, on high, for 30 seconds. I then broke a slice of processed American cheese (use your favorite cheese) into quarters and placed two quarters on top of each egg and microwaved for five more seconds. Served on a warm buttered English muffin – YUMM!. Easy, quick, delicious. (Remember, ovens vary; make a test run first and adjust time to get the yolk consistency you like.) Thank you Shirley Wheele!


Made these over the weekend for my parents while they visited, and they were great. Cooked them a little longer for desired doneness, but that's up to the cook. I also cooked mine in a water bath (placed the muffin pan in a larger pan with some water in the bottom) I also cheated and used pre-cooked bacon, making the cleanup a snap. Served over toasted whole grain english muffins. The possiblities are endless with this.. do these with canadian bacon and hollaidaise sauce for easy eggs benedict.. or serve over sauteed spinach. Put sauteed green pepper and onion in the cups prior to breaking the eggs in. I can't wait to experiment with these.


Terrific idea! I used a small porcelain ramekin sprayed with Pam, and only made 1 egg because I am always a little cautious with new methods. I used my convection oven/microwave (Kenmore) set at 350 like the recipe says and it turned out magnificent. Mine took ~ 13 min. to cook to sunnyside-up doneness. So cute when you pop it out of the ramekin! I don't know that I would ever cook these on the stove again because this was such a simple method (I was able to walk away and get other stuff done) and I like the presentation/neatness.
