I love quick and easy breakfast ideas for my hungry growing kiddos! I love a good egg casserole—they’re generally super simple to throw together. They might have to cook for a while, but the actual prep is a breeze!

When I came across this Oven Bake Egg recipe, I knew it was a keeper. Because it’s baked, the eggs come out perfectly cooked every time, and the consistency is extra cheesy and fluffy!

Baked Eggs are also called shirred eggs which just refers to eggs baked in a flat-bottomed dish. They can be baked in anything from smaller ramekins to larger casserole dishes. The egg base can easily be added to create many different flavor and texture variations. 

Baked eggs are similar to frittatas except for a frittata is more of an egg custard and a quiche is a frittata with a pie crust shell.

Recipe tips

Bake time. I bake this egg dish at 350°F for about 55 minutes. If you live at a higher altitude than the Arizona desert, it may need a bit longer.

If your oven runs hot or you use a larger dish, the baking time may need to be reduced. Check on it after about 30-40 minutes.

Test for doneness. The casserole is done when it puffs up and springs back when pressed. Another way to test for doneness is to insert a thermometer into the eggs. They should reach about 160°F.

Toppings. Each person can further flavor their eggs by adding their favorite toppings such as sour cream, chives, Salsa, Guacamole, or hot sauce. 

Baked Egg Muffins are simple to make and just require a muffin tin. We have a similar recipe you can use Healthy Egg Muffins.

Storing Info

Make ahead of time. Easily meal prep this recipe! Whip up the egg mixture the night before and keep it covered in the fridge. Allow it to sit at room temperature while the oven preheats, then bake. 

STORE leftover Baked Eggs in an airtight container(s) in the fridge for up to 3 days. Reheat it for a minute or so in the microwave and serve!

FREEZE a fully baked casserole. Allow it to cool completely then wrap the pan with plastic wrap and again with foil. It will keep in the freezer for up to 2 months. 

Reheat. Remove the plastic and cover the casserole with foil. Bake the frozen casserole at 350°F for about 45 minutes. Remove the foil and bake until warm throughout, about another 30 minutes.

    I am so excited to try these! They look so soft & airy! I had never thought to make them like this, but it’s a delicious option over scrambled eggs.

    Fluffy eggs are the best, and these are literally the fluffiest eggs I have ever had. Seriously never making eggs any other way ever again.

  3. 4 stars
    I made this for Christmas morning breakfast, and the time was too much! I would cook it 30 minutes instead of close to an hour next time. It was all dried out and over baked. The flavor was great but it was dried out. I hope this helps!

    1. Thanks for the feedback. The ads do enable us to provide free content and recipes for readers. Thanks for understanding and being here!

  4. Have you tried this recipe in muffin tins instead of the casserole? I’m thinking about making in jumbo muffin tins and letting each person pick their own add-ins.

  5. I don’t know where you got the name of this recipe from but it’s inaccurate. This is not “Baked Eggs”! This is a frittata or a casserole bake or what have you regardless… it’s NOT “Baked Eggs”! “Baked Eggs” is my favorite family recipe that has been passed down through generations amongst my relatives as well as through other families too and it consists of eggs that are baked in its original self form as it lies in the shell before cracking open …similar to a poached egg. Baked Eggs also are baked and served in personal, individual crocks and consists of a buttered saltine crust & cover while incorporating a crispy bacon & egg partnership. Not scrambled & all mixed up into a quiche like casserole consistency that you display here. Yes, your recipe looks delicious Lil’ Luna… but it’s not “BAKED EGGS”. Jus sayin…
