Frequently Asked Questions
The cooking time depends on what level of doneness you want your baked eggs. For runny yolks, bake for 12 minutes; for medium yolks, bake for 14 minutes; and for hard yolks, bake for 18 minutes.
The key to making sure your baked eggs don't dry out is to cook them at a low temperature for the right amount of time. Bake them for 12-18 minutes at 350°F depending on how runny you want your yolks.
This baked eggs recipe is perfect for meal prep. You can bake the eggs in advance then store them in the fridge for up to 5 days, then eat them cold or stick them in the microwave for 1-2 minutes to reheat. You can also freeze the eggs for up to 3 months.
You can use this recipe to make baked egg whites. Try baking them for about 10 minutes and then check their doneness, depending on how hard or soft you want your egg whites.
It all depends on how you want to cook your eggs. You can gently poke the top of the yoke with your finger – if it seems super watery, it needs to cook for longer, but if it's super hard, then it's overdone.
