Baked Eggs with Turkey Bacon and Chives

Baked Eggs with Turkey Bacon and Chives

I got these crème brulee dishes not because I wanted to make crème brulee (I don’t have the torch) but because I thought it would be nice to make individual tarts or quiches.  Yesterday, I discovered that it would be groovy to use them in baked eggs as well (Yay! these individual dishes aren’t as limited as you think).  I served it in the dish but it would be just as presentable sans dish, if you grease them prior to baking.

  • 4 eggs
  • 1 slice of turkey bacon, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon of minced fresh chives
  • 2 tablespoons of shredded pepper jack cheese
  • salt and pepper to season


Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.  Grease two 7-ounce individual tart or quiche dish.

Divide the turkey bacon and add them into the two dishes.  Crack two eggs into each dish.  Season with salt and pepper.  Add 1 tablespoon of cheese into each dish and garnish 1/2 teaspoon of chives into each dish.

Bake for 17-19 minutes until the eggs set.  Let it sit for about 5 minutes before serving.

  1. Those baked eggs look delicious. It’s something I’ve never bothered to bake. Really must, as nights are so much cooler. You don’t need a torch for crème brulee, btw. Brulee irons, if you can find them, are much better to use.
    Thought I was following your blog. Apparently not. There seems to be hiccups with the new Reader.

    • Hi! And thanks. These eggs are a cinch to make, not to mention healthier too, than frying. Thanks for the tip –I will be on a look out for the brulee irons.

  3. This is a must try, Anne! The yolks look perfect. Are they still a little running after baking them? I used to dispose runny egg yolks but ow I just love them!
