If you’re following a diet like us you’ll quite often get bored of scrambled eggs and omelettes for breakfast …..there’s only so many ways to cook an egg, so these Breakfast Bakes are a great way to add a bit of variety.

They are really quick and easy to make!

You can even prepare them the night before (minus the egg of course) and leave them in the fridge so all you have to do is crack the egg on top and pop them in the oven or microwave them in the morning.

Do you need any special ingredients to make Breakfast Bakes?

This post contains affiliate links. Find out what this means.

The short answer? Absolutely not! The good thing about this recipe is you can use add or leave out whatever ingredients you want.

You could add some onion or sliced sausage.

If you like it a bit spicy you could add a few drops of hot sauce or a pinch of paprika. The options are endless.

You can also layer the ingredients in any order you want, just don’t put the egg on the bottom!

One question we do get asked lots is, ‘Where do I get the cute little tin from to make these Breakfast Bakes?’

We picked some of these up just after Christmas from John Lewis. I do love a bit of copper, and really couldn’t help getting one!

They also do a mini frying pan, and a mini saucepan. Check out the Croft collection on the John Lewis Website.

There are also some cheaper versions available on Amazon here!

But you can make these in any small oven proof or microwavable dish/ramekin you have at home!

Can you cook Breakfast Bakes another way?

You can cook these Breakfast Bakes in the oven or the microwave.

Don’t forget, cooking times will vary depending on your microwave or oven, the size of dish you use and how you like your eggs, so we’ve given you a rough guide for both.

I like a runny yolk so 15 minutes in the oven was perfect for me!

Either bake in the preheated oven at 190°C for 15 – 20 minutes, or microwave on high for at least 60 – 90 seconds (don’t forget to cover with cling film in the microwave).

Make sure the egg is cooked as you like it and serve!

How do you know when the Breakfast Bakes are cooked?

When cooked the egg on top will be cooked to your preference, any white should be set.

This should take approx 15-20 minutes in the oven, 60-90 seconds in the microwave (high).

Standard advice here in the UK is to cook food until it has reached 70°C and stayed at that temperature for 2 minutes. This is to keep your family safe. 

How long can you keep Breakfast Bakes in the fridge?

You can keep them prepared (minus the egg) in the fridge for up to 3 days. Make sure they are well covered.

We wouldn’t recommend keeping leftovers as the egg would be over cooked when reheating.

Can I freeze Breakfast Bakes?

We wouldn’t recommend freezing this recipe. It’s really quick to put together and you can always prepare it the night before (minus the egg) and keep it in the fridge if your morning is rushed!

  1. this sounds great as a light lunch or as an accompanyment for sausages & maybe some mash for dinner, looking forward to trying it,
    i also i made your homemade savoury rice the other night & was lovely, i look forward to trying more recipies

  2. This is one meal I will definitely cooking as these are ingredients I have all the while in fridge and cupboard.

  3. Made this for lunch today hadn’t got any beans so used a tin of chopped tomatoes instead was absolutlely delicious so tasty will be making it again thank you for all the hard work you put in to this site will be trying lots more of your wonderful recipes xx

    1. Absolutely delicious. Took a couple of minutes in the microwave to cook the egg through and I added a few good splashes of Worcestershire before serving. Another great recipe idea!

  4. This isjust my kind of recipe and I can’t wait to try it. Could I ask where you get your fab individual little tims from please?? Xx

  5. Hello
    love this recipe, where did you get the cute dishes you cooked it in – these would look fab in my kitchen

  6. I made this today-i love it however the eggs were overdone so I think I might try it at a lower heat for less time. Oh I also added onion& some sliced baby plum tomatoes-yummy!

  7. Hello, I did everything in the method minus the cheese and cooked in the microwave covered for 90 seconds and the egg was still raw, I tried again for another 1 minute and the egg was still raw! What am I doing wrong?

  8. So is this recipe for 1 person? I couldn’t quite work that out! Or kept missing the number of people this serves!

  9. I’ve followed SW on and off for years and always struggled with breakfast as I don’t like overnight oats, or most cereals. Tried this this morning and I’ve found my new favorite breakfast, today starts my 4th attempt at following SW properly and I’m so glad I’ve found your website!!
    PS. For anyone using the microwave, this took me 3 minutes in my 800W microwave for the yolk to be fully cooked.

  10. Looks Delicious! A dish the whole family will enjoy! Love the additional info re the baking tin – a lovely extra touch! Thank you

  11. This was fab, had it for breakfast this morning, absolutely lovely. Thanks for the inspiration, was stuck in a yoghurt and fruit breakfast rut and this was just what I needed.

  12. Recently found this little gem of a recipe! OMG me and my partner are obsessed!!!!!!!!! Made it last night for my parents and dropped it off for their breakfast this morning! Hopefully they will love it too! 🙂 So tasty and so quick and easy to throw together 🙂 Thank you 🙂 xx
