Easy Baked French Eggs Recipe

What are Baked French Eggs? I call these eggs French eggs as this recipe is my own take on an old French technique of baking eggs in the oven. It’s essentially the same technique but adapted  so they can be made individually in a muffin pan. The advantage of this technique is that you can make eggs for everyone at one time. I’ve found that baking eggs is incredibly simple and easy to make plus you can several eggs at once. There are tons of recipes for special breakfast bowls, tarts and hash brown pies and I love those, too.  This recipe is all about the egg and serves as an easy way to make several eggs at one time to accompany any of your favorite breakfast sides.

Servings: 12 eggs

Author: Melissa Sperka


  • 12 large eggs or desired amount
  • 8 oz grated or shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream more or less depending on how many eggs being prepared
  • salt and black pepper to taste


  • Preheat the oven to 425°F. Spritz each muffin cup with butter flavored cooking spray. Crack an egg into each cup.
  • Drizzle each egg with 1-2 tsp of heavy cream. A drizzle of melted butter will work, too. Season with salt and freshly ground pepper to taste and sprinkle with 1 Tbsp of Parmesan cheese.
  • Place the eggs into the oven and cook 7-8 minutes for soft, 9-10 minutes for semi-soft and 11-12 minutes for firm centers. Garnish with additional Parmesan cheese and serve immediately.


For a nice variation, line the muffin cups with a piece of Canadian bacon, ham or a cooked sausage patty. For a vegetarian twist, a bed of spinach. Then crack the egg into the center and bake.

    I have made these twice and they have turned out perfectly both times. We had one egg leftover the last time and my husband reheated it in the microwave and though it did cook a little more he said it was still fantastic.

    I made these today with spinach and vegan cheese on top. After I topped with crushed red pepper and parsley flakes 😋 Great, filling and low carb. 🙏

  3. Are there two eggs in each cup? The recipe calls for 12 eggs, but the directions say to break an egg in each cup. The photo shows a 6 cup baking pan.

    Love these!! I added little salad tomatoes cut in half, also added torn spinach! Thank you for sharing!

    1. You’d need to let them thaw then reheat in the microwave. As far as keeping the yolk runny after reheating that might be a challenge. You may have to figure that out with trial and error.

      I have made these & the family loves them! Can I make them using the muffin papers? I’d like to make them for a class & using the papers would be an easy way to differentiate.
