Preparation Time5 min

Cooking Time10 min


  • Italian Baked Eggs
  • 1/2 cup marinara sauce
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature
  • 3 tablespoons heavy cream
  • 1/8 cup shredded Mozzarella cheese
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 2 tablespoons basil leaves, chopped
  • Mexican Baked Eggs
  • 1/2 cup salsa
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature
  • 3 tablespoons heavy cream
  • 1/8 cup shredded Mozzarella cheese
  • 1/8 cup shredded Mexican blend cheese
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 green onion, chopped


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Lightly spray 2 oven safe bowls with nonstick spray.

  2. Pour sauce (or salsa) in the bottom of each bowl. Top with 2 eggs, heavy cream and respective cheeses. Season with salt and pepper.

  3. Place into the oven until egg whites are cooked through, about 10 minutes. Yolks will still be slightly over easy.  Leave in the oven longer for harder cooked yolks.

  4. Serve immediately, garnish with basil (Italian) or green onions (Mexican).

We recently got hens and they are giving us the most beautiful eggs I have ever tasted. I have been looking for some different kinds of recipes to try out on these eggs and I think this sound lovely, they would be a perfect brunch meal at the weekends, they sound simple and tasty!

This egg recipe that is cooked 2 ways looks so yummy. There is the Italian Baked and Mexican and I wanna try both doing the Mexican first as I like the smell and taste of Mexican dishes. Can't wait to try this recipe.

While surfing on these recipe pages, I am learning a lot about cooking. I do not think that I have ever heard of baking an egg as a meal in itself. This is interesting and both of these recipes sound worth trying out. Thanks for the inspirations.

If I take the jump and prepare either of the two of these baked egg recipes, it will be the first time I have ever prepared an egg by baking it. I like the idea. You can make the dish, walk away and come back to a breakfast instead of having to hover over a fried egg. Both of them sound delicious.

ooh love this video with the two recipes made side by side!! I definitely want to try the Italian baked eggs!

I love salsa with eggs especially a veggie omelet. I going to add try this recipe but will add the salsa after the dish has been cooked. I prefer cook salsa.

The recipe for Baked eggs two ways sounds like this could be a recipe to make a lot. The Italian baked eggs sounds absolutely delicious. I am going to try them this weekend for my family. The Mexican one sounds good too. They are both worth trying. I am looking forward to making both of them.

Hmm I wonder if I'd be able to substitute the heavy cream for whole milk. Has anyone tried this?

This baked eggs recipe so interesting. I don't think I've ever had eggs with salsa or tomato sauce actually. I'll have to try this sometime!

What are the dimensions/brand of the bowls used in this recipe?

These are called small oval bakers -- they are individual serving dishes. Dimensions will vary, but if you look up "small oval bakers" on Google, you'll be able to find a retailer that carries them. Hope that helps!
