Baked eggs is an ideal Sunday breakfast- one where you have the time to savor the moreish combination of gooey eggs, fresh vegetables, cheese and herbs and some warm toast. In our family M and his sister Sharvari are the only fans of gooey eggs. While I like eggs well cooked, I am not immune to the food fancy of beautiful oozing eggs. So I treated M to this easy and healthy breakfast on Sunday while I tucked into my good ol’ masala omlette and toast. The beauty of baked eggs is- you can make it as healthy or sinful as the ingredients you have on hand. I used some capsicum and carrot and 1 cube processed cheese. But you could easily add in some oomph by using cream, cheddar, red chillies, chilli flakes or even mozzarella.
You will need:
2 eggs, room temperature
1/2 green capsicum, chopped
1/2 carrot, chopped
1/2 onion, chopped (I did not add this, as M does not like onions with his eggs; but this will surely make it even more tastier- in my humble opinion)
1 cube Amul processed cheese, grated
1 tsp mixed herbs
salt and pepper to taste
– Preheat the oven to 200 degrees Celsius.
– In a small baking dish, add the chopped veggies, cheese, salt and pepper, herbs and other seasoning (if required). Mix it well. Then break two eggs over the vegetable mix taking care that the yolk does not break.
– Put this dish into the oven and bake for 15-20 mins depending on how well done or oozy you want the eggs to be.
– Serve with hot toast and a tall glass of cold milk or juice.
