For the full list of ingredients and comprehensive instructions, please see the recipe card at the end of this post. Before you scroll, there’s important stuff to know in the blurb!

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.

What diets are these Breakfast Bakes suitable for?

These Breakfast Bakes are suitable if you’re gluten free.

You could also enjoy this recipe if you’re dairy free by leaving out the cheese or using a dairy free alternative.

Please make sure to double or triple check all of your ingredients if you’re cooking for people with allergies.

Vegetarians can switch the bacon for a chopped veggie sausages to make this dish meat free!

How Weight Watchers Friendly are these Breakfast Bakes?

Weight Watchers’ new PersonalPoints plan calculates each individual’s Points allowance based on their unique food preferences and goals. This means we’re no longer able to offer exact WW points for our recipes.

The good news is that all of our recipes are still Weight Watchers friendly! If you have any questions about your Points budgets or you’re unsure how a certain recipe will fit into your plan, please reach out to Weight Watchers directly.

Do you need any special ingredients to make Breakfast Bakes?

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!

Hints & Tips

Below we added some of our communities most common hints and tips. We hope you find them useful.

NEW TIP
I added some diced chorizo and fried it off with the bacon and mushroom to give it even more flavour!
NEW TIP
I added some sliced plum tomatoes & chopped red onions
NEW TIP
Alternative
As an alternative to beans, use spaghetti hoops. Hubby doesn't like mushrooms so I add peppers and onions. Gives it a really yummy flavour.
NEW TIP
Lazy breakfast!
Cut up the bacon before adding to the bottom of the bowl so that you can eat your bake with just a fork for a yummy lazy breakfast!
NEW TIP
A fuss free filling breakfast.
I added low fat sausage instead of bacon along with some baby cherry tomatoes for sweetness.
NEW TIP
First breakfast PON!
Really easy breakfast bakes! I added a bit of spinach in with the mushrooms and bacon! Hubby said it was delish!!

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!
