What are Baked Eggs?
Oven Baked Eggs are essentially a way to cook eggs using a muffin tin and the oven. Baked eggs have the texture of a hard-boiled egg, but you don’t have to deal with peeling the shell off of it.
The great thing about cooking eggs in the oven is that it’s a super hands-off method to cooking eggs and they are ready in no time.
Baked Eggs – Quick Guide
- Preheat the oven to 350ºF and grease a muffin tin with non-stick cooking spray
- Crack your eggs straight into the tin.
- Add some flavor with a little shake of salt and pepper.
- Bake for about 10-15 minutes depending on how you like your yolk.
how long to bake eggs
We suggest baking your eggs for around 10-15 minutes depending on how runny you like your yolk. The longer you cook your eggs, the harder the yolk will be.
Can I make baked eggs ahead of time?
Muffin tin eggs are such a great meal-prep recipe that you can make ahead of time. They will last up to 5 days in the fridge.
Let baked eggs cool completely and then store eggs in the refrigerator.
How to Bake Eggs in the Oven
- 6 large eggs or however many you want
- nonstick cooking spray I use olive oil or coconut oil spray
- Salt and pepper to taste
- First, preheat the oven to 350ºF and generously spray a nonstick muffin tin with cooking spray. Alternatively, you can use muffin liners, but we still suggest spraying those with cooking spray.
- Next, crack one egg into each well and then season with salt and pepper, to taste.
- Bake eggs at 350ºF for 10-15 minutes or until the yolk reaches your desired doneness.
- If your eggs don’t come right out, run a knife around the edges to help them loosen.
Tips & Notes
- Timing: the longer you cook your eggs, the harder the yolk will be. Start with 10 minutes and go from there.
- Muffin tin: make sure to use a nonstick muffin tin or you might have problems getting your eggs out of the muffin tin. You can also use silicone muffin cups like this one.

This blog is very nice and article is very good. Thanks for sharing this informative and useful piece of content.
Question: could this work with just egg whites?
Hi Terri! Great Question! We have never tried this with just egg whites, but I imagine it would work just fine. You may need to decrease the bake time so just watch out for that.
We love these eggs! I also like to press thawed, frozen, shredded hash browns into the tin then bake it at 400 for 10-15 mins before adding the cracked eggs. Sooo yummy and a complete on-the-go breakfast!
So smart with the hashbrowns!
How long do these stay fresh in their refrigerator? Thanks in advance for the great recipe I can’t wait to try!
i can’t use non-stixk spray – do you think this would work the same if I cooked them in a cupcake liner?
I put these in silicone cupcake liners and they turned out great this morning. Are you able to use Avocado oil? I don’t use true non stick sprays either. Instead, I use Avocado oil spray found at Costco. You get 2 huge bottles and they are not expensive. 🙂
This was quite easy to follow but I think 17 minutes would have been entirely too long. These are mine after 12, just a bit of run and whites are perfect. Next time I would take a look after 10 minutes and go from there. Of course you may like your yolks to be firmer but I would take a peek after 10 minutes and adjust from there.
I can’t seem to get runny yolks without the white not cooked properly
I did 350 12 min no convection. Then low broil for 4min worked good
Mine came out rock solid after only 12-13mins….I wonder, is this recipe for eggs being cooked straight out of the fridge? I’m in the UK and we don’t keep eggs in the fridge so maybe it needs tweaking depending on the temperature of the eggs before they go in the oven. I will try again, probably around the 6min mark.
bruh you dont keep eggs in the fridge i (no no) am also in the uk and we keep eggs in the fridge you satanist
Why be rude and call someone a satanist. Eggs do not need to be in the fridge.
Definitely try these if you are on the fence with eggs they are terrific. I dont like hard boiled eggs and struggle with ways to eat them as part of my weight loss journey but baked eggs are the way to go! It’s a game changer for me(its a texture thing with boiled eggs for me) But these are just different enough I can handle it! 🙂
I’ve been wanting to try this. But wasn’t sure how long to cook them. This recipe made so simple! Thanks!
In the nutritional ‘facts’ there are just numbers, no grams etc. Just mentioning. 5 of what? 100 of what?
That is all in grams!
No Review, just a THANK YOU!
How long to bake for soft yolk.?
Start with 14 minutes!
Just made these with diced ham and
Sharp cheddar, going on my favorites list.
Simple and quick.
Yum! That sounds amazing.
How long are these good for?
3-5 days in the fridge!
Are you mad these will not last 5 days in the fridge. 48 hours max
WRONG! They absolutely will last 3-5 days in the fridge. Maybe you should check your fridge, or Maybe you haven’t even cooked them and giving out advice.
SHAME ON YOU!
We use a mini muffin tin. Preheat oven to 350°. Crack 7 eggs in a small glass pitcher and whisk smooth. Place a layer of canned mushrooms at the bottom of each cup. Pour whisked eggs to ¾ depth. Fill the cups with a layer of shredded cheese. Bake for 14 to 18 min. The eggs miniatures can be eaten in one bite. We eat them as finger food.
Can these eggs be frozen??
Hi Lee! Is there a certain way that you freeze these? I have tried in the past and gave up. They come out very watery and rubbery after they are reheated. Any advice would be appreciated. 🙂
Hi Amanda! Personally, I don’t think I would freeze these just because I like my eggs fresh. They do hold up in the fridge, though!
I use this recipe to cook eggs for breakfast sandwiches for my husband. We freeze them all the time, and have learned a few tricks in reheating. We thaw in the fridge overnight, then reheat in microwave at 50%. I’m sure not as good as freshly made, but he loves the sandwiches :). Hope that helps!
Just made our eggs! Thanks for the cooking instructions ❤️
Just a heads up that on mobile your page is entirely covered by the ads- I had to go find a laptop to see the post 😬
I made these and I placed a slice of Deli ham in the sprayed muffin tin cups put in the egg and salt and pepper then shredded cheddar on top cooked 17 minutes. The were not runny ( yes that is how I like them) this makes for great meal prep for the work week. Thank you for sharing.
