Huh. I was going to share the recipe to a quick and easy “holiday” treat that has been a tradition on my side of the family since forever. I haven’t made baked eggs in ages so I went in search of a picture to use to illustrate. Holy cow! The variety and yumminess that I found knows no bounds! When I was growing up, baked eggs meant lining the cups of a muffin tin with bacon, cracking the eggs and dropping the contents into the cups, then baking until bacon and eggs were done. A dozen fed four of us. What I discovered? Dang! To get specific directions for what I’m now calling the basic version, click on the photo above.
That’s the Plain Jane. The possibilities look endless! Prosciutto ham. Canadian bacon. Cheese. Spinach. Chopped green onions. Hash browns. And bacon. With extras! The diversity is mind boggling. I’m going to have to totally rethink the whole baked eggs thing. I’m talking dinner. At any time! Just Google “Baked Eggs” and start checking recipes! Or just look at the pictures for inspiration. I’m thinking Canadian bacon, cheddar cheese, and chopped green onions. Or deli-sliced ham, fresh spinach, and feta cheese. Or…or…*muppet flail*
What about y’all? What combination sounds yummy to you?
