Eggs are not consumed much in my house, so we do have end up with a pile of them. The basic scrambled, boiled or fried egg routine can be monotonous too. I decided to try out a few quick dinner ideas around eggs (these crispy baked eggs being my first attempt). Let me put it out there that is scrumptious, and much filling than it looks (lol).
Serve it with roasted cherry tomatoes (or a side vegetable of your choice) and you have a balanced meal for your family dinner. Eggs are rich in nutrients, so what seems to be a light meal will go a long way.

Ingredients to make the crispy baked eggs
The recipe does not need many ingredients (no more than 4 main ingredients). I swear by this kind of cooking because I have a lot to balance on my plate (no pun intended):
- Olive Oil
- Salt and pepper
- Cheese (Gruyere or cheddar – I used Cheddar this time)

If you want a lower calorie version of these crispy baked eggs, the quickest way is to use egg whites instead of whole eggs. The dish itself is higher in fat content, so please do take that into consideration when doing your meal planning.
