Author Notes: I've decided that I prefer eggs baked vs. fried. They're so much creamier this way, and you can throw in whatever you have in the fridge. Even better is when they're made with eggs from the backyard - the yolks are so much brighter!clcatto

  • 1 tablespoon heavy cream
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons chopped tomatoes (or to taste)

  • healthy grate of cheddar or parmesan
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • sprinkle of garlic powder and red pepper flakes
  • fresh herbs, chopped, if available
  1. Coat the bottom of In an individual sized shallow baking dish (you can use a larger dish if you're making baked eggs for a crowd) with the heavy cream.
  2. Crack one or two eggs (for an individual size) into the dish.
  3. Add the chopped veggies and goat cheese.
  4. Add herbs and spices.

I really like this dish and have made it several times now. Last week, I added cooked diced pancetta to the mix and, having no parmesan, used asiago. The variations with this meal are just about endless.

I'm going to try these this you ever use spinach? Wondering if that is enough cream if I add a lot of veggies?

Oh! I think spinach sounds fabulous!

I haven't tried spinach but I've chopped up a little arugula. Sounds great. You could always add a little more cream. The recipe is so easy I usually just wing it!
