Basic Baked Eggs Recipe

4 eggs 
2 tablespoons milk or half-and-half 
Salt and pepper 

Heat oven to 325°F. Break and slip two eggs into each of two lightly greased 10-ounce ramekins or custard cups. Spoon milk evenly over eggs. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.

Bake until whites are completely set and yolks begin to thicken but are not hard, 10 to 12 minutes. Serve immediately. Yields 2 to 4 servings.

Insider Info for Baked Eggs

Baked eggs also are called shirred eggs. Spooning liquid over eggs while they bake, or sprinkling them with shredded cheese, can help prevent drying.
