20 Best Ever Baked Eggs Recipes

1. Simple Baked Eggs

Before we jump into the full list, let’s talk about simple baked eggs.

They’re easy to make and require nothing more than eggs, butter, salt, and pepper. 

Ready in just 20 minutes, they always taste spectacular, and there’s no grease weighing them (or you) down. 

And, of course, you can add lots of yummy toppings to them, too! 

2. Cheesy Baked Eggs for One

Nope. That’s not a sweet soufflé on your screen.

It’s a cheesy egg dish for one, and it’s divine. Delightfully fluffy, extra cheesy, and just plain awesome, it’s such a nice way to start the day.

Use this recipe if you want a fancier presentation for your morning eggs. 

3. Shakshuka

Looking for an easy egg recipe for breakfast or dinner? Shakshuka is perfect!

Some versions of this dish are called “eggs in purgatory” since the little yolks are surrounded by fiery tomato sauce.

Enter your email below & we'll send it straight to your inbox.

But no matter what you call it, this dish tastes phenomenal and is hearty enough to satisfy even the biggest appetite. 

It’s also versatile enough to work with whatever ingredients you have on hand. Oh, and the sauce can be as spicy or mild as you like.


4. Paula Deen Breakfast Casserole

Why stop at simple baked eggs when you could go all in for a breakfast casserole?

It combines three of everyone’s favorite breakfast staples: sausage, eggs, and cheese. 

And while it’s a bit time-consuming to prep, you can get it ready the night before and stick it in the oven the following day.

That’ll save you at least half an hour. 

5. Baked Huevos Rancheros

If this breakfast is good enough for ranch hands, it’s good enough for me!

Huevos rancheros is actually one of my all-time favorite meals. I usually make it for brunch, and it comes in a bunch of variations.

This one features eggs cooked with black beans and salsa. It’s a flawless Mexican breakfast that’s perfect as is.

That said, feel free to add to the ingredient list. For example, I like it with chorizo sausages or chicken. But it’s also scrumptious with steak!

6. Sheet Pan Eggs

Sheet pan meals aren’t just for dinner, you know! And these eggs are proof.

With the fluffy, savory mixture of peppers, onions, mushrooms, eggs, cheese, and more, they’re to die for. 

Use any veggies you like and serve with plenty of toast.

7. Skillet Baked Eggs With Country Potatoes and Bacon

This tasty baked egg dish is more like hash than anything else.

It combines tender fried potatoes with crisp edges and salty bacon. Then, you’ll crack a couple of eggs in the middle and stick the whole skillet in the oven.

It’s a fantastic, well-balanced breakfast in just over 30 minutes. 

8. Rich Tomato and Egg Gratin

This next baked eggs recipe is a fantastic breakfast for the family. But it’s also an excellent appetizer or casserole for dinner. 

Creamy and cheesy, this tomato and egg gratin is a decadent, buttery vegetarian meal everyone can appreciate.

The rich bechamel sauce is drool-worthy, and you can have the entire thing ready in less than an hour. 

9. Baked Eggs With Spinach and Tomatoes

Are you getting tired of plain old eggs for breakfast? Jazz them up with spinach, garlic, tomatoes, and red pepper flakes.

Oh, and cheese…lots and lots of cheese! 

It’s a flavorful, 30-minute meal that’ll impress anyone who tries it. 

10. Za’atar Eggs With Lemony Yogurt and Herbs

Did you scroll straight here after reading the intro? I don’t blame you!

Za’atar eggs make a delicious and easy breakfast or brunch dish. And it’s definitely a fun and unique way to impress.

Simmered in a flavorful za’atar mixture, the eggs are topped with lemony yogurt and fresh herbs. 

Serve it with crusty bread for a real treat.

11. Breakfast Tomatoes

I adore baked tomatoes because they’re super juicy, and the little char on the edges is to die for.

But when you add an egg to the middle and bake until everything is tender and gooey? Man, I’m a goner!

Add some chili flakes and Parmesan if you like (I do!), or serve these as is. They’re delish either way.

12. Baked Eggs With Onions and Cheese Recipe

Baked on a bed of onions, breadcrumbs, and cheese, these eggs are a breakfast dream come true.

They’re seriously crunchy and deliciously cheesy. You’ll want to use a mix of Gruyère and Parmesan to ensure the best flavors.

Serve these with bacon and fried tomatoes. Yum!

13. Healthy Sheet Pan Breakfast Nachos

Healthy and breakfast are strange words to combine with nachos. However, that’s precisely what these nachos are – it’s right there in the title, after all. 

It all starts with the tortilla chips, which you’ll overload with nutritious ingredients like eggs, avocado, veggies, and herbs. 

Crunchy, cheesy, gooey, and rich, they’re perfect for sharing.

14. Sheet Pan Egg in a Hole

Nearly everyone has tried eggs in a hole before. But did you know you can bake them and add bacon for extra yumminess?

It’s a simple, five-ingredient recipe that’ll have your taste buds jumping with joy. After all, who doesn’t love toast, eggs, and bacon in the morning? 

15. Creamy Parmesan Baked Eggs

As the name suggests, these cheesy eggs are unbelievably creamy. They’re so creamy that you can use them as a dip for your morning toast. 

It’s an easy recipe to follow, too. You’ll need eggs, butter, salt, pepper, and cheese.

The secret ingredient is heavy cream. It’s what gives them that phenomenal texture.

Pull them together in about 20 minutes, and enjoy! 

16. Healthy Breakfast Egg Muffins

These aren’t the plain old egg muffins you’re used to eating. Instead, these are fluffy, veggie-packed egg muffins with plenty of herbs and seasonings. 

As written, the recipe is vegetarian-friendly. However, you can add your favorite breakfast proteins, including sausage or bacon.

17. Enchilada Baked Eggs

Take your go-to Mexican dinner and give it a twist for breakfast.

Between the salsa, refried beans, and cheese, it’s got the key elements for enchiladas. But then you’ll add an egg on top and bake until it bubbles.

Feel free to add extra protein (like shredded chicken) as well as sliced avocado and hot sauce! Yum!

18. Hash Brown Egg Nests

I love these treats because they really do look like little nests. Each one features a bed of crunchy, salty hash browns with a flavorful egg on top. 

They’re small – no more than a mouthful. But that means you get to eat more than one!


19. Baked Eggs With Creamy Spinach, Chorizo and Feta Cheese

From that title alone, you know this is a hearty breakfast. But can we also appreciate how incredible this baked egg dish looks?

I mean, how can you beat spicy chorizo, creamy spinach, salty feta, and scrummy eggs?

I like to make and serve this in mini cast iron skillets or individual casserole dishes. But really, it’s just as tasty in a big pot served family style.

20. Caprese Baked Eggs

You’ve tried Caprese salad and Caprese skewers. Now, it’s time to try Caprese baked eggs.

They have a bright, zesty flavor but are surprisingly filling. 

Serve them with the flakiest, crustiest bread you can find, and you won’t be disappointed.
