Individual Baked Eggs

Rated as 4.61 out of 5 Stars

"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."

  2. Place bacon in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium high heat until evenly brown, but still flexible. Wrap bacon slice around the inside of a muffin cup. Place a teaspoon of butter (or bacon grease) in the bottom of muffin cup. Drop in egg.
  3. Bake in preheated oven for 10 to 15 minutes. Place 1/4 slice of cheese over egg, and continue cooking until cheese is melted and egg is cooked.

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 glas...

I'm in the minority here as I wasn't impressed with this at all. A rather bland dish, it's badly in need of some doctoring up; maybe scramble the egg a bit first so you don't have that hard-coo...

I'm giving it 5 for ease and taste. I will say that I deviate by wrapping the raw bacon in the tins, and baking them for 5 min in the preheated oven, then dropping the egg in, making sure to cen...

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 b...

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 ...

EGG-CELENT!!! This worked out great this morning, as I had 9 hungry kiddies (3 being my own, the rest = 4 nieces & 2 nephews) to feed. I alternated scrambled & sunnyside. Plopped them out on ...

I love this recipe. My good friend introduced this to me about a year ago. I get rave reviews every time. The only thing I do different is add a bit of dijon mustard, mayonnaise & paprika rig...

This is a fantastic Idea. I also did this with a slice of blackforest ham, inserted into the muffin cup then add the egg and bake the same way as with the bacon. Infact, the hame is a lot neater...

This is so easy and I had no problem getting them out of my muffin cups! I baked these at the same time as a batch of biscuits, and made Hollandaise sauce while they were cooking. Split the bisc...

Easy to make and delicious too! Used shredded cheddar/monterey jack cheese. I cook my bacon in the oven on my Pampered Chef Bar Pan. Then used the Pampered Chef 6 muffin pan. Forgot to grease...
