Nothing says love like a little breakfast in bed, especially if accompanied by a Bloody Mary, or two! Show your mom some love tomorrow with these deliciously easy baked eggs. With only five ingredients and a fifteen minute prep time, these baked eggs are so foolproof, even a young child can help put this one together. Trust me, you’ll make mom’s day if you start her off with this fabulous breakfast!
To make this dish a little more special, I baked the eggs in rich, delicious Brioche buns. Brioche is a pastry of French origin. I chose a Brioche bun for this recipe since it’s high egg and butter content give it a rich and tender crumb. These buns are widely available in supermarkets. Check the bakery section for them. If you can’t find them, any small bun will work just as well.
Baked, fried or poached eggs are all the rage these days. And while this is a great breakfast in bed recipe, no need to limit yourself. This is great for breakfast, brunch or even a light dinner.
- 6 brioche buns
- 2 tablespoons butter melted
- 3/4 cup shredded Beemster Mild Gouda
- 6 slices ham about 1-ounce each
- 6 large eggs
Preheat the oven to 375°F. Cut a 3 to 4-inch wide hole in the tops of the rolls and hollow out. Brush the insides of rolls with melted butter and add 1 tablespoon Beemster Gouda to each roll. Cut each ham slice in half and use both halves to line each roll. Carefully crack an egg into each roll.
Arrange rolls on baking sheet and cover them loosely with aluminum foil. Bake for 20 minutes or until the eggs are set. Sprinkle each roll with 1 tablespoon Beemster Gouda. Bake for 3 minutes or until Beemster is melted and the eggs are desired doneness.
