I am having a bit of a crazy time work-wise. It always happens around this time each year – the London Book Fair is a mere month away and in the publishing business this basically means that everyone goes a little bit crazy preparing for it.
This leaves very little time for blogging or even just plain cooking. Which is where these baked eggs come in. This is THE recipe for when you are in a hurry, starving and facing a pretty bare fridge. Easy, delicious, cheap and filling. Thumbs up all the way.
Feel free to vary the ingredients according to taste and what you have available. This recipe can easily be adapted for the Slimming World plan.

Made this for breakfast for 4 this morning, made it in a big Falcon baking dish. It went down a storm! The eggs weren’t runny, so will experiment with timings next time (we have a terrible oven). But the OH wants it to be a breakfast staple, will definitely be doing again! Thank you. Cx

A thing I always forget is that eggs continue to cook after you take them out of the oven in a hot dish. So if you want them really runny it’s worth keeping in mind. I remember making Shakshuka and the eggs were very runny when out of the oven but by the time I had photographed the dish they had almost set

We had baked eggs at a local restaurant and they were gorgeous, I fancy whipping these up this morning.

This looks delicious I will definitely give it a try. It would be a good dish to give my son for breakfast before school, I do like to give him a hot breakfast in the cold weather and this would make a nice change from the norm.
