How to Bake Eggs in the Oven
We’re kind of picky about eggs in our house. It’s weird. My kids love egg whites but not the yolks. If I make hard boiled eggs, they pop out the hardened yolks and eat the rest. But! They like the drippy yolk if I make a sunny side up egg.
Since I hate the stress of peeling hard boiled eggs (they are always always the worst peel experience ever… unless you use an instant pot in which case they are a glorious peel, but I digress). I thought we could make something that would be the perfect combo of a a hard boiled egg white, a drippy yolky center, and a no-fuss, no peel experience. So, I made some egg cups!
This recipe is perfect if you are a meal prep-er and want to batch prep some eggs for breakfast or snacking throughout the day, this is the easiest recipe ever. EVER!!
You could pop this on top of an avocado toast, a salad, or literally just east it as is. I sprinkled with some simple salt and pepper, but get creative! Add some shredded cheese or some everything bagel seasoning. Pop some sun-dried tomatoes or little bites of bacon in there. The possibilities are endless so think of this recipe as a blank canvas.
They’re perfect as is, but you can totally build on it. So, without further adieu, let’s learn how to bake eggs in the oven!
Spray the muffin tins with olive oil. Crack the eggs into the muffin tins. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bake for 15 minutes until the clear part of the eggs are white and the yolk is still drippy.
If you want hard boiled eggs, bake for another 5 minutes. Use a butter knife to slide around the edges to remove the eggs from the tins.
