Baked Eggs

Here is a very easy recipe that you could make for breakfast, lunch or dinner.  It’s from Allrecipes.com, I randomly saw it in one of their Daily Recipe emails.  It’s called Chef John’s Baked Eggs.

It’s extremely easy!

First get an oven safe dish.  Spray lightly with cooking spray, then spoon a layer of marinara sauce on the bottom.  (Their recipe didn’t say to spray the dish, but I am OCD about my Rachael Ray dish)


Then sprinkle it with some salt, pepper, red pepper flakes, and parsley.  Now use the spoon to make little nests for the eggs.


Crack the eggs in another container, and gently slide them into their nests.


Put all your eggs in one basket.


Cover with a layer of Parmesan cheese, and drizzle with some olive oil and heavy cream.  Add a little more parsley for looks.


Bake in a preheated 400 degree F oven for 10-12 minutes.


It’s best served with crusty bread, but mini croissants scavenged from the bottom of your freezer will do.

Ring Around the Scrambled Eggs

Here’s a very easy recipe to make scrambled eggs look fancy.


First make your scrambled eggs any way you like them. I made mine with 6 eggs, splash of milk, onion, tomato, and cilantro.  Then, I discovered my Cheez Whiz only had 1 baby spoonful left, so I added that along with a very mashed Kraft Single from the bottom of the drawer, and a small hunk of cream cheese.  Salt and pepper to taste.

Preheat the oven to 375 F

Now bust the crescent roll dough out of that scary unpredictable cardboard tube.


Try to carefully separate the triangles and arrange them like above, with the wider parts forming the inside of the wreath and overlapping each other.  Press the edges together a little bit to make sure they stick.


Carefully, arrange the scrambled eggs in a circle on top of the dough.


Wrap the points over the scrambled egg ring and try to tuck it under the dough in the middle.  If you can’t tuck it, just press it into the inside edge of the dough.  Then brush with a little bit of milk.


Now bake in the preheated 375F oven for 15-20 minutes until golden brown.


Let cool 2 minutes, then devour.
