greek baked eggs



We love baked eggs. They are just so darn simple. And they cook perfectly every time. It’s great because you can make two for yourself or a dozen for guests. They don’t need to be in these cute little ramekins – instead, if you are serving a crowd, combine everything in one of those pyrex dishes. This way you aren’t cooking eggs to order for your guests…just throw it all in there and in ten minutes, you’ve got breakfast!



Greek Baked Eggs

Serves? I made three eggs, one for me and two for him.

Change it up! Add different herbs, spices and cheeses!

3 tablespoons of butter, cut up into small pieces and chilled

3 tablespoons of cream

3 eggs

3 tablespoons chopped oregano

1 tablespoon chopped dill

6 tablespoons of feta cheese

Salt and pepper


Begin by preheating your oven to broil. Place ramekins on a baking sheet.

In a small bowl, mix chopped oregano and dill and mix with your hands. Set aside.

Put one tablespoon of the cut butter into each ramekin. Pour one tablespoon of the cream over butter. Broil on high for 5 minutes, or until golden brown on top and bubbly. Remove from oven.




Quickly, crack an egg into each ramekin, being careful not to break the yolk.


Season with salt and pepper and sprinkle chopped herbs on top. Add 2 tablespoons of feta over the top and return to oven for another 5-7 minutes, or until desired doneness of egg.



Serve while hot with some fruit and coffee!
