Cheesy Baked Eggs

Sometimes I’m in the mood for something a little different. This meal was perfectly satisfying. We ate this for dinner, but it could totally be a breakfast, brunch or lunch.

We often eat eggs for dinner. This Frittata recipe is one of our favorite ways to eat eggs.

I love a great ‘breakfast for dinner’ dinner, but I gotta say, this definitely did not feel like breakfast. Maybe because the breakfast for dinners we choose are not really along these lines. And include pancakes or French Toast  ๐Ÿ™‚

This recipe is adapted from Everyday Food Magazine. One of my all time favorite resources for recipe inspiration!

Secret Sauce

Okay, it’s not really a secret sauce. But do you know how easy it is to make sauce from scratch? Don’t let that whole ‘from scratch’ thing intimidate you. I love the simplicity of this but it’s full of flavor, and really I think more flavor than you can get from a  jar.

This sauce is super easy. Easy as sautéing some onions, adding a couple spices, tomatoes and cream. See? Not so difficult. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Another ingredient that I think really boosts up the flavor in this dish is the corn tortillas. They absorb all the yummy sauce and add some texture. You don’t have to slice them up like this, but it does make it a tiny bit easier for serving.

Once you’ve made your sauce it’s time to assemble your casserole. Is anyone else not a fan of that word “casserole”? Seriously it just sounds dated and… blah. I don’t know, but I surely do love casseroles!

If you know how to make a good one, there is nothing ‘blah’ about it. ๐Ÿ™‚

 Cover the bottom of your dish in tomato sauce~ yes, the one you made ~then add your tortillas and more sauce. Then just crack the eggs right on top. I make a little well in the sauce.

How to get perfectly baked eggs

Here’s a couple tips to get perfect baked eggs~

  1. Pouring a little liquid over the top prevents it from drying out. Use a little milk or cream.
  2. Bake 12-15 minutes for runny yolks, 15-18 minutes for a soft cooked to medium yolks, and 20 minutes for hard cooked yolks.
  3. The eggs will continue to cook a little once its removed from the oven, so keep that in mind.

  If you like the yolks firm, then bake it a little longer, if you like a softer yolk, then a little less.

Dinner’s done! In under 30 minutes! Can I get an “Amen”?

  1. Oh fantastic! It’s delicious! We are having a brunch on Saturday too. It’s different from our usual, but I’m really looking forward to it. I’ll have today to prepare things and tomorrow morning to cook without getting ready for church (and 4 kids ready) at the same time. It should be a restful Easter Sunday. ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. OK…I”m making this over the weekend! Delicious. We;re heading out for Easter Brunch, but think I’ll make a brunch on Saturday too as my sweet girl will be home from school for the weekend. Thanks for the idea.

    Hugs, Lynn
