I’ll admit it. For a majority of my life if I ate breakfast it was as a special treat for a quick dinner or just weekends. Don’t get me wrong, I love eggs, pancakes, sausage, and especially bacon, but I’ve always treasured those few extra minutes of sleep versus a hot breakfast at home. Until recent years, I’d usually just go for an early lunch instead. However, for the sake of being healthier, I knew breakfast would have to be a common practice during the busy work week as well.
That’s why I really like this recipe because it allows me to stick breakfast in the oven while I’m getting taking a shower, getting dressed, packing for the day, etc. I also like that this recipe is pretty versatile. You can cook however many you need (I suggest 2 per person, maybe 3 for the guys) add whatever seasonings you like and cook to your desired doneness. I think it would also work well if you wanted to scramble the eggs (or use Egg Beaters or just whites) instead and maybe add some veggies, etc. for kids that may not like soft baked eggs.
As you can see, mine aren’t the prettiest, but I think that is partially due to the fact we get our eggs at Costco, which are extra large eggs. I think with the normal large eggs, they would look a lot neater and be perfect for when you’re serving breakfast to a lot of people at once. Either way they were super tasty and will become a regular on our breakfast rotation. They rounded out our breakfast very nicely while paired with a croissant and mixed berries!
