Eggs Baking

Baked Eggs

So as you probably already know, I like to get a little fancy on the weekend. I love my breakfast quiches but sometimes I need something different.  Normally on the weekend I just weave some bacon, fry and egg, slap some cheese on it, and I’m done.  However, today I wanted to try something new.  That, and I just got a new Nikon D7100 and I wanted to try taking some pictures 🙂  Hopefully the photo quality of the blog increases from here on out. So I decided to bake some eggs instead of fry them.  Ideally this would be made with ramekins but all I had was these glass Pyrex bowls.

Frying BaconThis recipe starts where most breakfast does, with frying bacon.

Bacon PressFor ideal bacon cooking, I recommend getting a bacon press. It flattens the bacon and allows for a more even cooking.

Sizzling BaconSorry, I had to take tons of pictures of bacon …

Frying OnionFor this next part, slice a small onion and place it face down in the skillet.  Then place the bacon press on top.

Fried OnionWhen you flip it over you get this perfect, golden brown onion face.

Preparing eggsNow, start the assembly process.  Basically you can use any oven proof small bowl.  Ideally a ramekin if you have it.  I sliced the onion in quarters and placed one in each bowl.

Bacon in RamekinNext, cut two slices of bacon in half and create a cradle out of it.

Eggs in RamekinCrack two eggs into the bowl.  Take care not to break the yolks.

Salt and Pepper on EggsAdd salt and pepper.

Cheddar CheeseAnd cheese.

Eggs BakingThrow them in the oven at 350.  Make sure to put them on a pan because the bacon will leak grease. Finished Baked EggsAnd you’re all done!
