Bacon and Herbed Baked Eggs


Hello there, I haven't seen you much this month.... this is my first recipe of the month. Boo to that.

But I'm sharing a dish that won't disappoint, at least!

 
















How many times have I told you about my love for breakfast food? Way too many times? I thought so. But guess what? I LOVE BREAKFAST FOOD!!! Just thought I'd tell you once more. Ya know, to emphasize the love.

I jumped at the chance to make this recipe.... eggs and bacon with herbs and parmesan make for flavorful fancy and filling eggs. 


























I cooked mine longer than 15 minutes but I may have cooked them a little too long because the outer parts were a bit brown and definitely fully cooked. I was afraid of runny, uncooked eggs though. Next time I may try it for the suggested 15 minutes.

We shall see, cuz there will be a next time. This is a keeper, for reals.

 























Bacon and Herbed Baked Eggs
adapted from Ina Garten & Use Real Butter

*Yields: 1 serving/ 1 ramekin or gratin dish
  • 1/8 teaspoon fresh garlic, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon fresh rosemary, minced
  • 1/2 tablespoon fresh parsley, minched
  • 1 tablespoon fresh parmesan cheese, grated
  • 1 slice cooked bacon, crumbled
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 tablespoon heavy cream
  • 1/2 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • salt and pepper
  • Toasted bread for serving, if desired
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Combine garlic, rosemary, parsley, and cheese in a bowl, mix and set aside. Carefully crack eggs into a small bowl without breaking the yolks. 

Place a ramekin or gratin dish on a baking sheet. Put cream and butter in the dish and place in the oven for 3-5 minutes or until butter has melted. Remove from the oven and quickly pour eggs into the dish and sprinkle evenly with the herb mixture and crumbled bacon, then season with salt and pepper. Bake in the oven for 15 minutes until the eggs have achieved desired doneness (less time for runny yolks, more time for firm yolks). Rotate baking sheet if eggs aren't cooking evenly. Shallow ramekins will cook the eggs faster than deeper ones, and keep in mind that the eggs will continue to cook once removed from the oven. Serve with toasted bread, if desired.

I had never had baked eggs before, but I'll tell you what...

We'll be making baked eggs on the regular from here on out. 

Really, can these eggs get any better?

I also want to say HAPPY BIRTHDAY to the love of my life. I'm so grateful he was born so I could spend forever with him!


Peace, and bacon grease!

Nice photos! Yep, I like baked eggs but I typically go longer than advised because I'm squeamish about runny eggs.
