Whether you are looking for breakfast, dinner, or brunch recipes these Baked Eggs are just the ticket. Super fast to put together – ready in under 30 minutes. Super flavorful – the ham, parmesan, mushrooms, and scallions come together like a song. These Baked Eggs are also great if you need to feed a crowd.
You will want to make sure that the ham and mushrooms are all cut to the same size pieces so that they will cook at the same rate. Also, make sure that you use shredded parmesan and not grated, they do not melt the same way. You could also add in some different veggies – like bell peppers, tomatoes, or spinach. You could also switch out the ham for some cooked sausage. Adjustments may be needed to the cooking time to get the eggs done to your desired level of runniness. I did 15 minutes and got a runny yolk similar to a sunny-side-up egg. Just don’t go too long or you will end up with something like a hard-boiled egg!
If you don’t have individual baking dishes like the ones I used – you can make this in a 13×9 baking dish. Simply spread the ham mixture in the bottom after coating it with butter. Make 8 small wells evenly spaced and break the eggs into the wells. Cook for the same amount of time.
I served this with a side of toasted buttermilk bread and some homemade blood orange marmalade (super easy to make – 6-8 peeled and chopped blood oranges, 4 cups water, 5 cups sugar, 1/4 cup lemon juice, and 1 tbsp pectin, boiled for 15 minutes then put into mason jars). It was a great sweet counterbalance to the savory baked eggs.
Now Let’s Get Cookin’!
- 9 inch baking dish x 6
- 12 Eggs
- 1 lb Ham Steak diced
- 1 cup Mushrooms diced
- 2 Scallions chopped
- 1 cup Parmesan cheese shredded
- 2 Garlic Cloves minced
- 1 tsp Salt
- 1 tsp Pepper
- 1 tsp Dried Onion
- 1 tsp Parsley
- 2 tbsp Avocado Oil
- 12 slices White Bread
- 1 stick Butter melted, divided
- Prepare all of the ingredients. Preheat oven to 400deg.
- In a bowl, combine ham, scallions, mushrooms, oil, salt, pepper, parsley, onion, and parmesan cheese. Toss to coat.
- Brush inside of each of the 6 baking dishes with melted butter. Spoon ham and veggie mixture into each dish, forming a well in the center for the eggs. Break two eggs directly into the well. Place dishes on baking sheet and place in oven for 15 minutes. (whites should be cooked through but yolks should still be runny).
- Toast bread in toaster or all in the oven. After toasted, brush with remaining melted butter. Cut in half and serve alongside baking dish.
