Herb Baked Eggs

I didn't want baked eggs this morning as much as I wanted heat from every available source in the house.

And that included the broiler.

I know, I know... I'm a heat ho.

This is Ina Garten's recipe, which you can find right here.

The eggs are cooked in melted butter and heavy cream sprinkled with a mixture of garlic, thyme, rosemary, parlsey and parmesan. What could be wrong with that?

This recipe makes for a very satisfying evening meal served with a salad and bread.

If you've never tried baked eggs before, I wish you would! The consistency is so different than eggs cooked any other way - they're almost meaty. The mixture of herbs used is so aromatic, it's worth it to make this recipe if only to smell it baking!

But the flavor... oh, the flavor...

Make this recipe once and I'll bet you'll make it again.


  1. Ok, you win. I will make this recipe. It looks mad good. :)

  2. Had this for brunch once and it was easy and delish.

  3. What could be wrong with that?

    Uhhh, absolutely nothing!

    I think it was something I read from Lidia Bastianich that talked about the joy of baked eggs. I still have yet to try it.

    And we're heat ho's at my place - we've actually been turning the gas oven on from time to time in the evenings because our heater hasn't been working properly. Hmph.

  4. Wow! Those eggs look beautiful. I'm going to have to try that recipe. I'm an egg ho! :P

  5. Yummm-o. I tried baked eggs last week and they were oh so boring, because I didn't have a recipe. Now I do! Thanks!

  6. Your baked eggs look really delicious -- almost too good for breakfast. I hear you on the heat thing. When I lived in Chicago, my oven was almost always on with the oven door open in the winter.

  7. What a great week night dinner. After running the kids everywhere, we get home tired and hungry. If I haven't prepped something, or taken frozen leftovers out to thaw, I have a hungry family and do my default--pasta and whatever-is-in-the-fridge.

    This is MUCH BETTER.

    Thanks for posting it.

  8. I'm a heat ho

    Says the gal in Montana lol. :)
