If you’ve never tried baked eggs before you might find the thought a little odd. While it takes a longer to make baked eggs, you’ll find that the texture of the baked eggs is much different then you get from fried eggs, almost like that of hard boiled eggs. It’s easy to make baked eggs, but you’ll need to have a couple if items to do so. First, you will need an oven safe ceramic bowl, such as a ramekin or a small Corning Corelle dish. Second, you’ll need an 12″ x 9″ x 2″ baking pan that you’ll fill halfway with water.
To make baked eggs, place a 12″ x 9″ x 2″ pan on the middle rack of your oven, and fill the pan half way with water. Preheat the oven to 350° F. While the oven is warming, lightly grease a ramekin or other oven safe small dish. You may add a round piece of ham or Canadian bacon to the bottom of the dish if you like. Then break 2 eggs into the ramekin, and place the ramekin into the pan of water. Bake about 20 to 25 minutes, until the eggs are set on top. Don’t try to rush the baking. Let them cook slowly in the water until the whites and yolk are firm. Then carefully remove the ramekin from the pan, leaving the pan of hot water on the rack in the oven (DON’T TRY TO CARRY THE PAN OF HOT WATER – LET IT COOL BEFORE REMOVING THE PAN). Immediately sprinkle the top of the eggs with grated white or yellow Cheddar cheese, and serve. Make one ramekin per serving, and you can fit 2 ramekins into the pan of water.
