Simple Baked Eggs

*don't forget to vote and post your name in the comment box below to be entered in the prize drawing 
today's the last day until the poll is closed- winner announced tomorrow!

This is the easiest, quickest recipe for the best eggs. I was rushing around the house the other night thinking I'd be really late to girls night... I hadn't eaten dinner and I still had to stop and pick up a bottle of wine. So I thought, "eggs!"

To my pleasant surprise, I was enjoying one of my new favorite meals in 15 minutes AND ended up 20 minutes EARLY to girls night haha! (sorry, Lauren)

Also, depending on how you like your eggs, runny or solid, these could only take you 10 minutes to bake. So let's get into it!

You'll Need: (yields 1 serving)

  • 2 eggs
  • small handful fresh basil
  • 4 grape tomatoes
  • white cheddar cheese, or any other you prefer
  • avocado (optional)
  • lemon juice (optional)
  • butter, for greasing muffin tin
  • salt and pepper to taste
First, preheat your oven to 350 and lightly butter two muffin holes in your muffin tin. Salt and pepper the tin so that it sticks to the butter. Slice your grape tomatoes in halves and plop one halved grape tomato in the bottom of each tin with some of the basil.
Crack an egg in each tin and top with chopped up cheese. Then place the other halved grape tomato and the extra bits of basil on top.
Pop the tin in the oven and bake for 10-15 minutes, depending on how you like your eggs... it is fun to have it a little runny in the center but, I just sort of like having that strange, solid yolk sphere to slice into by baking it for the full 15 minutes. Personal preference! They should be a little golden and bubbly on top.
Let them cool for maybe three minutes, gently loosen them from the muffin tin with a butter knife, place them on a pretty plate and top with sliced avocado... and even a squeeze of lemon juice if you're feeling zesty!
Whip up these simple eggs for breakfast, lunch OR dinner... They're too easy, right? But wait 'til you taste!

Happy Eating and HAPPY FRIDAY!

Don't forget... winner announced tomorrow! Today is the last day to vote on that poll at the top right of the page!
