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.)
