Baked Eggs in a Muffin Tin
August 20, 2016 20 Comments
Have you ever tried to baked eggs in a muffin tin? The result will stop you from buying a fast food breakfast.
I have made eggs in mugs and tried them in microwave egg cookers. One time, I tried to bake whole eggs in the oven to see if it was an easier way to make hard boiled eggs (it was not).
This technique is so simple that I should have thought of it! All you need is eggs, a muffin tin, and non-stick spray.
You coat the tin liberally with non-stick spray and then you crack the eggs one by one into the tin. Bake at 350F for 17 minutes for a hard yolk and you are done!
I loved the way these tasted with my fresh tomato ketchup. The outside of the egg was a little crispy, which my son liked.
My husband said he likes fried eggs better but he is super picky about his eggs.
These are like the eggs you find in the middle of an egg mcmuffin – which makes sense since you make them in a muffin tin. Stuff one between a whole grain English muffin and you will have a quick breakfast for a fraction of the cost of the McDonald’s version (you will also avoid the salty bacon and American cheese).
You can also customize these by added cheese, mushrooms, green onions, peppers, or whatever you like in you eggs.
I like them “au natural” because they are like hard boiled eggs. You can chop them up and add them to a salad or make an egg salad with them WITHOUT HAVING TO PEEL THE EGG.
How cool is that?
These store well in the refrigerator in an airtight container.
My plan is to make this on Sunday and then my family can grab them for an easy breakfast or snack. This is a great addition to my Healthy Breakfast Snacks list.
