Baked eggs must be the easiest thing a person can cook from scratch. Crack on the heat, crack in the eggs, wait a minute and eat. I remember having more trouble tying my shoelaces than cooking baked eggs. That said, I am a chef and not a master shoelace artist. Whatever your profession though I think we will all manage to tie this one together.
“I remember having more trouble tying my shoelaces than cooking baked eggs”
Whether you are a kid, mom, dad, bachelor/bachelorette, student or anything else I haven’t come across yet, this dish will find a perfect place in your kitchen and a cozy spot in a hungry tummy. Baked eggs are obviously great for breakfast but they also serve an awesome purpose for a post workout meal or just a light healthy snack.
We as chefs rarely start our days without breakfast and coffee no matter what some liars out there will tell you. Mostly the attention seekers will tell you they don’t have time. BS! Big time! Theres always time for breakfast. Especially baked eggs with some tomatoes and smoked bacon thrown in to sexy it up. Easy, fast, delicious. YUMMY-YUMMY-IN-MY-TUMMY!!!

To prepare our killer little breakfast, snack or meal we will need some nice products. Free range organic eggs fresh from the hens backside is what takes my fancy. If you disagree then please be my guest and buy some battery hooker/hen eggs not so fresh from their origin. Choice is yours after all. Smoked good quality bacon should be easy to come by. If you prefer uncured bacon then look no further I have it right here on the site. Nice ripe tomatoes. I know great tomatoes are a first world problem but, what to do? We can’t have it all. Not all at the same time anyway. We also want some herbs. I used dill because I have a strange love for it but that’s my problem not yours so pick what turns you on.
Finally I used butter to bake the eggs but again as mentioned before. Beauty is in the eye and all that so… go ahead and use whatever oil you like.

The process is stupendously simple. First we heat up the pan with some butter/ oil. Chop up our tomatoes and bacon and give them a quick fry it the pan. Wait for the tomatoes to release their juice and boil away. When things look great we will crack in our eggs , season with salt, pepper and cover the pan with a lid for about two minutes. When the eggs are cooked to your liking slide them out onto a plate and sprinkle with your favourite herbs.
