In May, eggs are a Foods of the Month. Eggs can be cooked in so many different ways. Have you ever had baked eggs before? You will need a ramekin or other type of dish that is safe to put in the oven. Not only are baked eggs a quick and easy meal, they also provide our bodies with protein and are vegetarian.
Check out our top three baked eggs ideas:
Italian Baked Eggs – Pour tomato sauce into the bottom third of a ramekin. Crack 2 eggs on top of the tomato sauce, then add a splash of skim milk, a sprinkle of mozzarella cheese and salt and pepper, to taste. Bake eggs at 425 degrees for about 15 minutes, until the egg whites become firm and white. Remove from oven, let cool, and top with shredded basil.
Baked Eggs with Spinach – Boil water and add 5 cups fresh spinach leaves. Cook until the spinach is wilted, about 5 minutes. Drain spinach and place it in the bottom of a ramekin. Crack 2 eggs on top of the spinach then add some feta cheese crumbles and salt and pepper. Bake eggs at 425 degrees for about 15 minutes, until the egg whites become firm and white. Serve immediately.
Avocado Baked Eggs – Cut an avocado in half, remove the seed and use a spoon to scoop out the insides, creating enough room for one egg in each half. Place halved avocados into a baking pan. Crack an egg into each avocado half and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bake at 425 degrees for about 15 minutes, until the egg whites become firm and white. Enjoy!
