Any breakfast that can be made ahead of time and kept in the fridge or freezer is always a winner in my book. I think this is largely because I’m not a morning person. I’ve always wanted to be one of those people who springs out of bed at 6:00 am ready and willing to tackle the day. Instead, I hit the snooze button for as long as possible and savor staying up late.
Yet I still like my mornings to go as smoothly as possible once my feet have hit the ground and I’ve downed my first cup of coffee. The breakfast routine can make or break the rest of the morning for me. If I can just grab something and warm it up to give the kids a hot, homemade breakfast they leave the house, everything is good.
That’s why I love making baked eggs. The process is simple and the finished dish can be refrigerated or frozen, either in its original form or repurposed into breakfast sandwiches, burritos or other fun things. Plus, I love the consistency of baked eggs. They are fluffy and creamy without drying out as they would in the microwave. They also don’t get that funky texture that scrambled eggs can get when frozen.
Baked Eggs with Bacon & Cheese
- 8 eggs
- 1 1/2 c. milk
- 1 lb. diced bacon, cooked and cooled
- 1 c. shredded cheese
- 1 t. salt
- 1/2 t. black pepper
- 1/2 t. paprika
- PAM cooking spray
- Additional shredded cheese, if desired
1. In a large bowl, whisk together eggs and milk until foamy. Stir in bacon, cheese and seasonings.
2. Grease a 13×9 casserole dish with New & Improved PAM cooking spray. Pour in egg mixture. Bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes, until eggs are fully cooked. Sprinkle with additional cheese, if desired, and return to the oven for a few minutes, just to melt the cheese.
3. Cut baked eggs into squares, strips or circles with a biscuit cutter or glass, depending on how you plan to use them, and enjoy!
I chose this dish to put the new PAM cooking spray to another test because it’s often a dish that sticks to the pan and makes for a difficult cleanup.
Once again, I was very pleased with how this new and improved PAM worked. The eggs lifted out cleanly without leaving anything behind. Even the very first slice I cut came out perfectly, and I’m sure you know how tough that feat can be.
