Is there anything more exciting than Christmas morning? I don’t think so. What isn’t exciting is slaving over a breakfast that keeps you in the kitchen and away from all the fun. But who wants the same old on such a special day?
Enter my family’s version of baked eggs. It’s an easy and filling breakfast that assembles in minutes and requires little effort on your part.
Set them out with some bacon, toast, and a tray of fruit, and you have a delicious morning meal that gives you more time with your family.
Christmas Morning Breakfast in 30 minutes or less
To start, generously coat a muffin tin with non-stick cooking spray, or use a silicone one. Don’t forget this step, or you’ll be cleaning your muffin tin for hours.
Crack the eggs into the muffin tin and pour in a small amount of cream. You can also substitute milk or coconut milk for equally good results.
Add salt and pepper
Shred your favourite cheese like cheddar or gouda and put approximately 2 tsp worth of shredded cheese over each one. Bake for 15-20 minutes at 350 Fahrenheit.
Once the cheese is melted, take the pan out of the oven and let cool for just a minute. Add fresh chopped chives if desired.
Finally, run a fork or knife along the edges of each egg, pop out of the tin, and serve. Baked eggs also make delicious leftovers, but chances are, there won’t be any.
