    How to make oven baked eggs

    • Preheat oven to 375 F and grease the sides of the muffin pan with coconut oil or butter. (You can also use silicone muffin cups or individual ramekins)
    • Add 1 egg into each cup, season with salt and pepper.
    • Place in a preheated oven and bake for about 10 – 12 minutes until the eggs are set. The longer you cook your eggs, the harder the yolk will be.
    • Remove from the oven and run a knife along the sides of each egg to easily remove them.
    • Transfer them to a plate and serve warm with fruits, avocado and hashbrowns.

    How long do they keep?

    Once the shirred eggs come out of the oven, let them cool to room temperature before placing them in an air-tight container. They will keep in the fridge for up to 5 days, so they are ideal for your breakfast throughout the week.

    Can you freeze these muffin tin eggs?

    Yes, you can freeze baked eggs, making them a great option if you have a carton of eggs that you need to use up.

    Bake the eggs as per the recipe, and let them cool. You can either freeze them solid on a baking sheet before transferring to a freezer bag or container or, wrap them individually in plastic wrap or foil and then freeze them in a bag or container. Thaw the frozen eggs in the fridge overnight before using.

    How do you reheat them?

    To reheat the baked eggs, the quickest way is to use a microwave, they need 30-45 seconds and they are good to eat. You can also reheat them straight from frozen for 60-90 seconds.

    How do you serve the baked eggs?

    You can totally eat these shirred eggs by themselves. I like to add them to Avocado Toast or serve them with hashbrowns or breakfast potatoes.
