Why Make Baked Scrambled Eggs

There’s nothing better than a piping-hot plate of scrambled eggs in the morning! Nutritious and delicious, they’re our favorite way to start the day.

However, in our homes, mornings are hectic. Between the kids running around getting ready for school, trying to get ourselves ready, and maybe grabbing a quick cup of coffee (if we’re lucky!) we definitely don’t have time to be standing over a hot stove. Luckily, that’s where these oven-baked scrambled eggs come in to save the day! 

 Soft, fluffy, warm, and irresistible cheesy, they’re every bit as delicious and easy to make as traditional scrambled eggs, if not more so. All you have to do is whisk the ingredients together, pop them in the oven, and go about your morning. In less than 20 minutes, you’ll have a high-protein, family-friendly meal on the table to kickstart your day. 

What You’ll Need

Think scrambled eggs are bland and boring? Think again! We took the classic recipe up a notch with tons of flavor you’ll love. Cheesy, herby, and satisfyingly soft, these baked scrambled eggs will knock your socks off. 

  • Eggs – You can’t make baked scrambled eggs without eggs! We use 8, but you can easily adjust the recipe for however many servings you need. 
  • Half and Half – This is the secret to the smoothest, creamiest scrambled eggs ever! In fact, it’s what makes so many restaurant versions so good. 
  • Butter – Melted and stirred into the eggs, unsalted butter creates a rich flavor and a smooth, velvety mouthfeel. 
  • Cheese – Personally, we love to add cheese to our eggs! A combination of Colby Jack and fresh mozzarella adds just a hint of spice and rich, salty, savory flavor along with a soft, gooey texture. 
  • Salt and Pepper – Trust us, you don’t want to skip these ingredients. Simple but necessary, they’re crucial to enhancing the taste of the eggs. 
  • Garnish – Technically optional but highly recommended, a sprinkle of parmesan shavings and chives or green onions makes these baked scrambled eggs look truly gourmet. 

How to Make the Best Oven Baked Scrambled Eggs

If you’ve never baked eggs in the oven, prepare to be amazed! This method is a game-changing technique that will revolutionize your mornings. Here’s what to do. 

  1. Combine the Ingredients. Whisk the eggs and half and half together in a large mixing bowl until smooth. 
  2. Bake. Pour the egg mixture into a round baking dish, place the butter in the center, and sprinkle the cheese on top. Bake for 12 minutes. Then, stir the ingredients, and continue to bake until your desired temperature is reached. 
  3. Garnish. Season your eggs with extra salt and pepper, and stir to combine. Then, top with Parmesan cheese and chives, and serve warm! 

Tips and Tricks

  • Adjust the Baking Time. We found that baking for 17 minutes yields the perfect soft texture. However, if you prefer your eggs a little more cooked and firm, add an extra 2-3 minutes of baking time until your desired texture is achieved. Just remember that your eggs will continue to cook slightly as they cool. So, be careful not to overbake!
  • Add Ingredients. Transform these baked scrambled eggs into a complete meal by stirring in extra ingredients! Some of our favorite options include crumbled sausage, bacon or turkey bacon, ham, roasted veggies, diced onions, and bell peppers. No matter what you include, you really can’t go wrong!

    Swap Out the Cheese. Feel free to mix and match your favorite cheeses. Or, swap them out for dairy-free varieties instead!
  • Make Egg Muffins! For individual servings, divide the egg mixture into a greased muffin pan, and make baked egg cups instead. To do so, bake them for about 10 minutes, cover the pan with foil, rotate it in the oven, and continue to bake until your desired doneness is achieved. 

Serving Suggestions

Our favorite way to serve these baked scrambled eggs is with a side of warm buttered toast. Yum! However, they pair amazingly with all your favorite breakfast sides. Some great options include: 

Or, pile your eggs into a tortilla or a sliced English muffin, and add your favorite toppings for an easy breakfast wrap or sandwich you can take on the go! 

How to Store and Reheat

These baked scrambled eggs are best served right away while they’re still warm. However, if on the rare chance you happen to have leftovers, they can be transferred to an airtight container and stored in the fridge for up to 2-3 days. Make sure they’re fully cooled before storing to prevent extra moisture from gathering on the lid! 

Then, when you’re ready to eat, warm them in increments of 10 seconds in the microwave to prevent them from drying out and becoming rubbery.
