Baked eggs

baked eggs with cheese and bacon

Baked eggs are an inspiration all the time. Today I just saw a beautiful photo from Jamie Oliver with baked eggs and it just send me in the kitchen. With just a few ingredients in the fridge I decided to do something like that: baked eggs with cheese and bacon.

You can’t believe how many ways to baked eggs exists. If you don’t have too much in the fridge just improvise. I love onion and I use it almost all the time.

These baked eggs are good for breakfast, lunch or dinner.


  • 4 eggs
  • 2 hands of mozzarella
  • 1 small onion
  • 10 pieces of bacon
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Chili peppers
  • ½ half red pepper


Preheat the oven at 220C. Lightly grease 2 or 3 ovenproof ramekins or small baking dishes with a little oil.

Cut the red pepper and the onion. Place the bacon on the bottom of the ramekins, add some cheese, onion and red pepper. Crack a couple of eggs on top and season with salt, pepper and chili.

Baked for 10 minutes or till the whites are set but the yolks are still not done. Serve it hot from the oven. Enjoy!

  1. Baked eggs are my favorite, hands down!
    I wonder what a restaurant would say if, when asked “How would you like your eggs?” One might reply, “Baked.”

  2. How perfect is this for timing! I am just about to make some breakfast, and happened on your blog post. So that’s what we’re having. Thanks! It looks delicious. I’ll report back. 🙂

      1. It was yummy! I didn’t have any bacon but I did use tomatoes and put it into small ramekins and it came out delicious. This would make a really excellent late dinner as well.

  3. These baked eggs look really good! We have a faithful flock of chickens who never stop laying, so this would be another great way to use them up.☺

  4. I’ve had baked eggs on my mind for weeks now, so when I saw your post I was like “yes!” I will definitely be trying this, thank you for sharing 🙂

  5. Oh ! This looks so amazing and hardly any effort. This weekend I had tried a similar thing in my mini cupcake tins where I had whisked my eggs and added to some spinach and veggies. I will surely try this soon being a huge fan of eggs 🙂

  6. I have to admit, I’ve been very hesitant to try baked eggs- I always feel like I’ll under cook them and make myself sick! But these look fantastic and I am definitely going to try a version tomorrow if I can. Thanks for helping me decide!


  7. It looked so good I had to try. As a result, I cooked this recipe and it was so good (and so easy to cook !)… can’t believe I didn’t try this sooner !
