  • Ham, turkey or bacon – are optional, but add a small bit of extra flavor and protein! If using bacon, make sure that it is cooked – see how to cook bacon in the oven or the air fryer
  • Spray oil – to avoid eggs from sticking to pan

step by step directions

Heat oven to 350°F. Spray a standard-sized muffin tin with spray oil, dispersing with paper towel. Line muffin tin with turkey slices, bacon, or ham. If using bacon, ensure that it has already been cooked.

Carefully break the eggs right into the muffin tin, or into a small bowl, then pour into the muffin tin. Season with salt and pepper.

Tip We find it easiest to crack eggs one by one into a measuring cup, then carefully pour them into the muffin tin.

Bake for at 350ºF 15-18 minutes, until eggs are done to your liking. We like ours set all the way through (no longer jiggling).


FAQ

Are these eggs soft or difficult-boiled?

This depends how long you abandon them in the oven. 15 minutes gave me kind, soft, jammy eggs, whereas 18-20 were more cooked through and closer to difficult-boiled.

How long do they last for?

Store in a sealed container in the fridge for up to 4 days. We have not tried freezing these; in theory, it should be fine.

Can I add veggies to them?

Yes! You can layer shredded potato or sweet potato as a ‘hash brown’ crust. You can also sprinkle the eggs with fresh herbs or finely chopped spinach before baking.
