Have you tried baking eggs in the oven before as opposed to the stovetop, to feed a crowd it is so easy!! We have been doing this for just the three of us many times too! We adore how wonderful these Cheesy Baked Scrambled Eggs turn out, fantastic each time we make them.
I love big fluffy eggs and you get that when they are baked in the oven. Then load them up with cheese and they are divine!! This leaves you time to do the rest of the breakfast.
Cleanup is easier all around!! We also all feel spoiled having breakfast for dinner, a great treat!! For another easy breakfast try our Sheet Pan Huevos Rancheros.
Fluffy, moist eggs, loaded with a cheesy top will have everyone running to the table to feast!! Kids love scrambled eggs too!! Pass the fresh fruit around that you have whipped up into a fruit salad. Everyone loves that also! So gorgeous any time of year but even more so in the summer when produce is at its finest.
You don’t need to be serving this to a crowd but just your family for breakfast or dinner. The time saving of not standing at the stove to make scrambled eggs will have you making this recipe again and again.
How to Make Oven-Baked Scrambled Eggs
Preheat the oven to 400F to start. Grease a 8×11″ baking dish and set aside. In a large bowl, whisk eggs with the salt, pepper, and cream. Pour egg mixture into prepared pan and bake uncovered for 10 min.
Stir and bake for another 5 min. Repeat every 5 min. until almost completely set, don’t overcook. It May take a total of 20-25 min. Top with cheese and bake until melted. Serve immediately.
I have to admit I am not a great scrambled egger! I leave that task up to Ken who is the breakfast aficionado. He does the eggs, bacon, toast and fixins’ way better than I could ever.
So it is Ken that is in the kitchen creating this dish for us. He knows not to overcook the eggs, to keep them moist, to never let them get rubbery or nasty.
If you have issues cooking eggs then this baked method is for you. Sit back, relax and poke your head in the oven when needed. You will love cooking scrambled eggs like this from now on!
