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!

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.

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?

    Hi Chesca,

    The oven should be hot (190 degrees) and the recipe says to bake them for 15-20 minutes.

    Hope that helps!
