I love finding easy new cooking techniques for staple foods that everyone loves. That is exactly what I found in Oven Scrambled Eggs. These eggs cook up super light and fluffy and are the best-tasting eggs I’ve ever had!
Baking scrambled eggs in the oven makes sense if you have other things to do besides watching eggs cook. I have made them for our Christmas morning brunch the last 2 years and loved having them in the oven along with our Christmas morning traditional cinnamon rolls. I’ve read about others throwing bacon on a baking pan and baking it at the same time as the eggs.
Today I made them because our girls had a snow day, and I knew they would wake up with hungry bellies but I didn’t want to spend a bunch of time and energy in the kitchen. I baked a pan of these eggs, sliced up some fruit, made toast and some Food Processor Chocolate Chip Banana bread, which I will be sharing with you soon!
The original recipe called for 24 eggs, but I halved it and it is the perfect amount to feed my family of 5. 12 eggs still seem like a lot, but I have teenage girls that like getting their protein in first thing in the morning, and… having teenage girls around also means there are often teenage boys here too, so I love that this recipe makes plenty!
The recipe is so forgiving that you can easily adjust the amounts by cutting it in half or doubling it.
I plan on making a pan for “brinner” (breakfast for dinner) soon and serving with warmed tortillas and sauteed fajita vegetables. If I have any leftover eggs, I will make some of my Breakfast Burritos For The Freezer.
