Easy Baked Eggs

I found this simple recipe for baked eggs at Copykat Recipes via Yummly. This recipe hails from a time before people decided that butter was the Devil's axle grease. It is suitable for vegetarians and omnivores. Not suitable for vegans, people who are allergic to eggs, or people who believe that butter is the Devil's axle grease.

You will need a tablespoon of butter per each egg. As I was cooking for two people (me and my son), I made four eggs. The recipe suggests cooking the eggs at 325 degrees for 15 minutes, but I was making cinnamon rolls also which needed to to be cooked at 375 degrees. I like my eggs on the firm side, so it turned out fine.

Step One: melt butter. I used an 8X8 glass casserole dish for four eggs. If you are making fewer eggs, you could use an individual oven-safe dish. If making more, size up the casserole dish as needed. One could also make individual eggs in muffin cups. As I was making four eggs, I used four tablespoons of butter.

Step two, crack eggs into melted butter. Try not to break the yolks, but it isn't the end of the world if you do. I didn't break any yolks, honest! (Yeah, I broke one.)

Step two, sprinkle with sea salt and ground pepper. You could also add herbs or cheese if you wish.

Step three, bake for 15 minutes. I baked a pan of Pillsbury cinnamon rolls and a pan of center cut bacon at the same time. Center cut bacon is wonderful. It isn't anywhere near as fatty as regular bacon, so there's less mess to clean up. I also think it has a better flavor.

Step four, eat and enjoy!
