Small Recipes...Simple Baked Eggs

 A good, easy, recipe from for one, two, or as many as you need up to six eggs at a time. 
I made one egg and an extra yolk that I needed to use. I followed the directions time wise and thought they were more done than I prefer mine. Next time I will cut off about 4 minutes for my taste as I like mine runny. These were not over hard but more set than I like. If you want your yolks set than use the longest time given. If you like your egg harder and someone else likes a softer egg baking each in a dish gives you that option. 
 Placing the ramekins in a hot water bath keeps the whites from burning and keeps them tender.
 They were certainly easy to make and I didn’t have whipping cream to put on top before baking so used half and half which worked fine. If you don’t want the extra calories just leave the cream off. With bacon already precooked from my freezer and a slice of Gluten Free bread also from the freezer supper was ready in no time with very little cleanup. Always a plus my book.

  1. I never thought about baking them. Usually we are in a hurry to eat and get out of the house, so we put them in a skillet.

    1. So do I if I am in a hurry, this made a nice change and I did it for a light supper. For just one little lady this was just right. lol

  2. Sounds like a great idea. Thank you for the inspiration.

  3. YUM! Good any time of day.
    Quick & easy; right down my alley.
    Stay cool & Stay safe.

    Sunday we got up to 100 deg & yesterday was 101. AC has been running nonstop so hate to think what our electric bill will be. I keep the thermostat set right around 77-79 and have all the ceiling fans going in bedroom, living room and above my kitchen island so they help A lot.

    1. It has been hot here also though not as hot as you have had. We were supposed to get to 100 today but now they are saying 98 with real feel about 107. What a summer! Yes these are good and easy for any time of the day. Stay cool down there and in out of the sun and heat.
