Yield 6 1x


  • 6 large eggs (or however many you want)
  • nonstick cooking spray (I use olive oil or coconut oil spray)
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


  1. 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.
  2. Next, crack one egg into each well and then season with salt and pepper, to taste.
  3. Bake eggs at 350ºF for 10-15 minutes or until the yolk reaches your desired doneness.
  4. 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.
