Baking eggs in a casserole dish with some bacon bits and herbs has forever changed my life. I just don’t think I can go back to a simple fried egg!
Baked Eggs (adapted from Honest Vanilla):
Yields 1 serving
- 3 eggs
- 2 slices bacon, diced
- 1/2 clove garlic, minced
- 1 tablespoon finely grated pecorino Romano or Parmesan cheese
- 2 teaspoons fresh parsley, minced
- Pinch of dried thyme
- Pinch of dried rosemary
- Freshly ground pepper, to taste
- 1 teaspoon unsalted butter
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Line casserole dish with butter and crack 2 eggs into dish; set aside.
Heat a small skillet over medium high heat. Add the bacon and cook until brown and crispy. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate.
Pour bacon bits into casserole dish and sprinkle in cheese, garlic, and herbs. Finish with freshly ground pepper.
Place into oven and bake for 5-10 minutes. (You can adjust the timing based on how you want your eggs cooked. I like my eggs over-medium so I baked them for about 7 minutes.)
