Baked Eggs with Avocado Hollandaise Sauce is another version of cooking eggs with a flavourful taste and a smooth texture. Breakfast just earned another successful and tasty new recipe.
Breakfasts should always be full of protein, satisfying, and delicious. Breakfast is the main part of the day when I eat everything I like with countless calories. I like breakfast made of eggs, in different ways, coffee, and sometimes the best-buttered croissants. I adore savouring breakfast with my husband as this part of the day is always the most appreciated.
Either scrambled eggs, egg toast, stuffed eggs, fried eggs, or baked ones are always an idea of the most comfort dishes made at home. My family like eggs as they are healthy and nutritious, so eating eggs almost every day, should look at least diverse and taste differently. For example, on meatless days, I like to enjoy some omelette with spinach and some thin slices of garlic. It tastes fabulous.
Baked eggs with Avocado Hollandaise sauce is also a healthy and vegetarian version of breakfast that is totally amazing and tasty. Avocado Hollandaise sauce is smooth, soft, and a little sour that perfectly completes the earthy eggs’ taste. They create a lovely pair together, so this is why I try to make this version at home, as well.
Have you probably worried about time?
No worries, as these eggs are ready in just minutes. This recipe is smell-less and is a more healthy version to fried eggs. But, I have to admit that some fried eggs in butter are simply mouth-watering.
You can make Hollandaise sauce in advance and serve it next to any dishes. This sauce will efficiently save you time and effort if you decide to use it next to some baked eggs. You can check the Avocado Hollandaise recipe here.
How else do you call baked eggs?
Baked eggs, aka shirred eggs, got their name from the type of dish you usually bake in a flat-bottom muffin baking moulds.
You can bake eggs with any ingredients you like. Ham, veggies, breadcrumbs, cheese, or with an Avocado Hollandaise sauce the way I did it. Some add-ins will only add flavour, heartiness, and colours. I made a simple version, but you can mix the eggs anyway.
Are baked eggs healthy?
Eggs are healthy to eat, especially at breakfast when your body is hungry, and you need ‘fuel to feed it’. Some researchers have shown that baked eggs have more vitamin D and more antioxidants rather fried or boiled. Eggs are rich in vitamins and antioxidants, so in case you were afraid to eat too many eggs….dare to, as they are healthy and with lots of proteins.
What temperature should baked eggs be?
Baked eggs should reach 160C temp if soft and properly cooked. If you want them more firm, then bake for some minutes more. Usually, perfectly cooked eggs will take up to 10-12 minutes. Medium yolk eggs will bake 15 minutes, and hard-baked eggs will take 17 minutes.
How long do eggs need to bake to be safe?
Baking eggs are safe to eat, but you need to cook them until the transparent liquid despairs. Whites have to set completely, and the yolk should be at your preference. Perfectly cooked eggs should have 160C.
How to make Baked eggs with Hollandaise sauce?
Simple and easy, these baked eggs are faster to cook with less smell in the kitchen. When I use to fry eggs, (I usually fry them in butter), they are super delicious, but my kitchen is full of smell.
So baking eggs at home is another excellent life-hack!
Eggs, Avocado Hollandaise sauce, and any bread or breadcrumbs you have will make the best-tasting baked eggs dish.
Preheat the oven at 400F (200C).
I have used an already made Avocado Hollandaise sauce, but in case you didn’t make it just visit my recipe. It is super simple to make and is ultra delicious at the taste.
Take the muffin tin or Ramekins and grease them generously. Line each Ramekin with a slice of bread at the bottom. ( For note: I have used two toasted bread slices and with the help of glass have made round forms identical with my plates’ holes).
Pour the Hollandaise sauce, so it covers the bread.
Crack on the egg in each Ramekin hole over the sauce, seasoned the eggs with salt&pepper.
Bake the eggs about 10-12 minutes or until yolks look at your preferences. I like soft baked yolks as the muffin is more delicious when I cut it half and it pours over.
Serve next to a fresh green salad or simply as it is, warm.
Some recipe tips:
Keep in mind that eggs tend to cook while the Ramekin/muffin tin is cooling, so try to avoid overcooked eggs.
Wash the eggs before using them.
Cook eggs in the preheated oven!
Generously spray a nonstick muffin pan with cooking spray or grease with some butter to avoid sticky muffins.
