Making eggs for a crowd has never been easier with these Perfect Brunch Eggs. Baked in the oven, using a shallow pan, it couldn’t be easier for them to be PERFECT every time. See this recipe MADE ON VIDEO HERE.
Making eggs for a crowd can be slightly intimidating. One of the many challenges is to get them to the table warm, while taking care to not overcook them. It would be nice to do eggs to order, but that’s a lot of work.
Using a Whoopie Pie pan is my go-to method for preparing eggs for a group of people. They come out perfect, every, single time. You can’t ask for more than that. And they’re pretty too.
After they are baked the eggs are so versatile. They can be used in a sandwich or eaten plain with a side of veggies or bacon.
The Whoopie Pie pan creates the perfect cooking environment for these eggs. They don’t run all over the place and the best part, they are all ready at the same time, in about 8-10 minutes. Removing them from the pan takes very little effort..
Just toasting some English muffins, adding cheese and bacon makes the perfect little breakfast sandwiches. They look fancy, but really it’s so simple to make this beautiful breakfast.
The yolks can be be left runny or can be cooked all the way through, it’s your choice.
As you can imagine, these disappear really quick on the brunch buffet line.
Another option is to scramble the yolks slightly with a fork before baking.
Then add sprinkles of sliced grape tomatoes, chunks of cheese and lots of fresh herbs. You can make every one different or keep them all the same. Sun-dried tomatoes would have been very nice in these eggs too….next time.
Perfect brunch eggs….every time. Now, go forth and get a Whoopie Pie pan. You can also use the Whoopie Pie Pan to make these amazing Corn Lime Cookies, or these gorgeous Strawberry Shortcake Cookies and don’t miss out on these Soft Baked Monster Cookies either.
Perfect Brunch Eggs
- cooking spray
- 12 large eggs
- salt & pepper
- various herbs and cheese, optional
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
- Spray Whoopie Pie Pan with cooking spray. Carefully break each egg into a small bowl first, then pour into the well from the bowl. This will allow you to remove any egg shell if some should fall into the liquid.
- Carefully place in the oven, taking care not to spill the eggs over the wells.
- Bake for 8-12 minutes, depending on how runny you prefer the yolks. Open the oven door and press on yolk to verify level of doneness.
- Serve immediately. If you want to add herbs, cheese or tomatoes, please know cooking time may increase slightly.
There are so many options when it comes to making eggs that are perfect for brunching! I would love to feed a small group with this egg based Tortilla Espanola. Egg filled casseroles are also a great option like this Cheesy Overnight Bacon and Egg Breakfast Casserole or this Bacon, Tomato and Cheddar Breakfast Casserole with Eggs. These adorable Nest Eggs would also be egg-cellent for a brunch crowd. Or you could totally change it up with these Twice Baked Potatoes with Spinach, Bacon and Eggs.
