Eggs-in-the-Oven

This is baked eggs in the oven a few different ways. Love eating a few of these protein filled goodies for breakfast but it gets boring doing it the same way over and over? I have some options for y’all that you will love. (affiliate links present)

Baked Eggs in Oven

Ok so we will start with the basics if you want to just keep them in the shell or just salt and pepper. First off you can make muffin tin hard boiled eggs pretty easily this way. No peeling or cracking, you just set them into a slot and bake like you see here below. They will come out perfectly yellow and ready to eat once shelled.

Want to skip removing the shells entirely? NO worries, we have directions for no peel hard boiled eggs for you here too. Using a casserole dish you crack as many as you’d like, season and then you can slice them up to serve. A great option if you want to dice and throw them into a tuna fish mixture or pasta salad.

Ok so there’s two options down, and the simplest of them all. Plain but a great low carb keto option if you don’t want any other ingredients mixed in there. We are all about adding all the things really, and especially cheese. I have shared a few different types of crustless quiche recipe ideas over the years, you can see one here.

You can integrate broccoli, make crustless spinach quiche, add some diced leftover ham or just different cheeses. I mean the best part is the middle of this French dish so without the crust you get fewer carbs and only the best of the best anyway right??

Egg Nest Recipe

You could call these scrambled egg nests of sorts I guess. If you wanted to spray the inside of each cup with non stick spray you could lay a slice of bacon around the outside first. Pour in your mixture and that will bake right on to the outside too!! It will look more like a cup that way. We do this with our other version below with zucchini.

Now this one is really fun!! Truly looks like a birds nest of sorts and tastes totally amazing. With only 6 carbs per and 14 grams of protein they are my daughter’s favorite start to the day. You can swap things out that you would prefer like maybe some finely diced broccoli or sliced mushrooms instead of kale I guess.

Explained below as is though is quite amazing, you should try it that way first and go from there. Ricotta and feta cheeses are used which are less oily and pack a bunch of flavor to them. Throw in another tray of Sausage Patties in Oven for a complete meal. You’ll need;

  • 4-6 eggs or 1 per piece so use as many as you’d like
  • Kale with stems removed, cut into bite size pieces
  • Fresh zucchini with ends removed, sliced into strips
  • 4 oz bacon or real bacon bits
  • Ricotta cheese
  • Feta
  • Diced green onions
  • If you wanted to add more meat it would need to be precooked and diced
    • a bit of spicy sausage would be great
    • add leftover bit of ham in there

And a bit of olive oil cooking spray into the muffin cups if you choose to use that pan instead of a casserole dish. If you spray the insides well they should slide right out when done. Whatever you add into the center keep it level to the top of the “ring” as it will rise just a bit as the egg cooks. You can Cook Sausage in Oven at the same time too.

Zucchini Egg Cups

The best way to get the slices the same size and thickness is to use a mandolin. Just make sure you use the handling tool it comes with so you keep all your fingertips. 😉 You could twist this inside a mug too with a cracked egg in a cup cooked in the microwave too for a faster version.

  • Start by slicing the zucchini into strips and place into a baking dish (or muffin pan) that will fit 6 of those circles.
  • Fill the inside of zucchini rings with kale pieces, about 1/2 way full.
  • Divide your ricotta into the 6 cups on top of the kale.
  • Then crack 1 egg into the center of each ring.
  • Top with crumbled feta and bacon bits, diced green onions, seasonings and drizzle olive oil over top of all of them.
  • Preheat oven and bake at 350 degrees F. for 15 – 20 minutes or until the egg is done to your liking.

You could easily make these into soft boiled egg cups at closer to 10 – 12 minutes, just keep an eye on them with the light on. You could switch it up once you get the hang of how this is done, like making shredded hash brown egg nests instead of the kale on the bottom.

Low Carb Egg Nest

You could make this without the yolks too if you really wanted. You would just cook egg whites only with the egg portion of the instructions. Season with salt and pepper to taste at the end and enjoy your oven baked egg recipe any time of day really.

Frozen Hashbrowns in Oven could be added on another rack to be served with too. If you do have leftovers they can be saved and reheated later or the next day. Just allow to cool, sit on a paper towel and slide into a container. When you reheat the you can use your air fryer at 380 for a few minutes to crisp or microwave for 1 minute.

All are really easy as far as meal prep goes, the last needing the most “work” (but worth it). If you come up with your own combination of goodies for the quiche or nests let me know. We would love to try your combination on the next go around.
