Baked Eggs With Veggies

To finish off our month of delicious breakfast dishes, we chose an incredibly easy and hearty recipe for baked eggs from Marta of the food blog What Should I Eat For Breakfast Today. Here, she makes a strong case for baked eggs as the ultimate morning meal…

Baked Eggs With Veggies
By Marta Greber of What Should I Eat For Breakfast Today

I love to make baked eggs because they’re so simple and tasty. I used white button mushrooms and tomatoes in this recipe, but feel free to experiment with different ingredients (or the contents of your fridge, like I usually do), such as seasonal veggies, spices and cheese. You can’t go wrong with it. The beautiful part is that the baking time is just enough for whoever’s cooking them to take a shower! Serve this dish in a hot pan, so it doesn’t get cold too fast, with a few slices of fresh bread on the side.

You will need:

2 small tomatoes or a handful of cherry tomatoes
2 tbsp olive oil
2 white button mushrooms
2 eggs
1 tbsp sour cream
1 tbsp butter
Salt and pepper

Preheat the oven to 350F. Spread cherry tomatoes on a baking sheet and drizzle with 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Bake for 20 minutes, or until skin starts to wrinkle.

Cut mushrooms into small pieces and sauté with olive oil over medium-high heat.

Separate egg whites from yolks. Mix 1 tablespoon of sour cream with the egg whites.

Take a small baking dish and add one tablespoon of butter to it. Place it inside of an oven for a minute, or until the butter melts.

Once the butter has melted, pour egg white mixture and fried mushrooms into the dish, and then add the yolks on top. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and bake for 10-15 minutes.

Serve with tomatoes on the side.

  1. Love this! I think my kitchen motto should for real be put an egg on it. Have some good egg recipes up now;)

  2. That presentation is amazing! I typically just cook my eggs on the stovetop with veggies and do a scramble that way. I also have a favorite baked egg recipe that includes homemade tomato sauce on top. I might just have to add some veggies and combine the two!

  3. My daughter is such an egg fiend. That’s the only kind of protein she would eat. She only likes the white parts though, so I’m stuck with a whole lot of egg yolks. Does anybody here have any tips with what to do with them? Thanks!

  4. What a great photo. I never realised the power of eggs until we moved to France and started keeping our own chickens two years ago, the deep orange yolks and taste of free range eggs is unbelievable. Eggs are now my go to supper with kale and rice or any vegetables when all five children have been doing activities and time is running short.

    What a beautiful photo of such a great idea for any meal of the day. Thank you for sharing enticing recipes! I’ve been wondering, what is the elongated green/white piece in the center? Are my eyes playing tricks?

    My favorite baked egg dish is Shakshuka. I just make a batch in my big Dutch oven with ten eggs in it and then divide it up into 5 individual portion containers to eat for breakfast every weekday morning. Just reheat at work or in the morning and you are good to go!

    What is that green thing in the middle of the dish? Is it an extra vegetable? I couldn’t figure it out from the ingredient list . . .

    • Beth says...

      I was wondering the same thing!

    • Sarah says...

      Yes, I can’t figure it out either! Hahha, what is that?!

    • Marta says...

      It’s a green pea pod :)

  9. This sounds amazing! I also love that it’s something I can do while getting ready in the morning!

  10. Jenna says...

    What are the eggs garnished with in the photo? Looks like parsley and maybe some avocado or pesto?

    • Marta says...

      It’s parsley and a green pea pod :)

    • Jenna says...

      The mystery is solved! Thanks Marta :) Looks delicious, I’m going to make this soon!

  11. I never eat eggs for breakfast at home (not a common thing here in Argentina) but then, I can’t wait to have them whenever we go to hotels with breakfast buffet! So I guess I should be eating eggs in the morning and give this deliciousness a try !


  12. Catie says...

    I love the idea of mixing the egg whites with sour cream–this looks delicious!

  13. jeannie says...

    This would make a great dinner, too!

  14. Thanks for this great recipe! Looks simple and delicious! I will try it tomorrow morning!

  15. As a vegetarian I love when blogs post veggies dishes. Ive never tried baked eggs, but maybe I will give it a try!

    I’ve shared some of my favorite vegetarian dishes on my blog over the years

    Since this recipe has eggs I think my comment will be appropriate.
    I tried the tip for opening eggs. It has worked wonderfully! I can now open eggs with one hand and with out leaving egg shelves on the food.
    So, great tip! It applies here as well.

    SJ –

    Thanks for sharing! What is the pan that the eggs were baked in?

  18. sounds like a great weekend brunch meal (since i’ll never wake up early enough to make this during the weekdays). also, i could eat anything with sour cream on it… i can’t be the only one right?!

  19. What a great looking go-to breakfast!!! I have to try it!

  20. I love serving baked eggs when we have breakfast guests. It’s so easy to do the prep work the previous night and then enjoy our friends’ company while the eggs bake instead of standing over the stove!

  21. This looks so yummy (and pretty). And what a great thing to put together the night before and then just throw in the oven while I’m you finish getting ready.
