Herbed Baked Eggs
Eggs are baked with herbs, garlic, and parmesan for a flavorful and delicious brunch dish. It’s so easy to make!
My love for the versatility of eggs seems to grow bigger and bigger all the time, and this is my latest love. You put a little butter and cream in a mini gratin dish under the broiler until it’s sputtering bubbling hot, then quickly add in the eggs, sprinkle an herb cheese garlic mixture on top, and pop it under the broiler for 5 more minutes until the white has set but the yolks are still runny. Simple and so very delicious. Just a little disclaimer, if your broiler cooks inconsistently, this may not be the best way to prepare the eggs if you want to ensure a runny yolk without a runny white, but I do suggest that you try frying some eggs sunny side up in a pan instead and sprinkling the mixture on top, because that’s one of the best parts.
Quick thanks to my dad and Lesli for getting me those cute mini gratin dishes from Le Creuset!
Here’s how to make these:
Place two mini gratin dishes on a sheet pan and add 1 tbsp heavy cream and 1/2 tbsp butter in each.
Place under the broiler for 3 minutes until bubbling and melted.
Quickly add three eggs to each gratin dish, sprinkle with the herb cheese mixture, and season with salt and pepper.
Pop under the broiler for another 5 minutes, rotating halfway throughout, until the white is cooked through. Enjoy!

I loved the herbed baked eggs. I will cut the broil time down to about 3 1/2 minutes next time. The yolks were close to hard boiled. Will get it right next time.👍
I made this recipe just now. It’s to die for and is my new favorite! I used 3 eggs, but the same amount of the herb mix as for 6 eggs. Be sure to use fresh herbs.
Oh gosh, I’m having a 15 Spatulas overdose. This serves me right for missing a week. I’m starving and these look amazing.
As you know, I’m an egg lovers myself so this dish looks fabulous! I also just bought some new mini gratin dishes that I haven’t used yet. Perfect timing!
This looks great. I love that you use the broiler … I’m always scared to use mine. Those are the perfect dishes for this, too.
Boy don’t these look heavenly. This could be a nice romantic breakfast for Valentine’s Day. Leave it to Ina to create something so luscious! I’m drooling!
What a beautiful meal to start the morning with.
I want this for breakfast, seriously
I had to stop in and see this recipe and your wonderful photos. I rarely do a whole lot with eggs, so this does inspire. My husband eats eggs every day, so it is time I surprise him with something different. This does look fantastic. I will probably make these in ramekins. Thanks for sharing this-yum!
Don’t you dare try putting that dish in front of me. I am confident I would eat the entire thing in record time. Looks delicious, Joanne!! Oh gosh, and of course I love your new Le Creuset gratin dishes. x
I love any recipe that comes in a tiny little dish like that! Makes it perfect for serving just yourself or perfect to entertain!
Joanne, I want your dishes…!!!
Everything that is gratin is delicious, even if inside is something that I don’t like very much, just because it has melted cheese I can eat it.
Who wouldn’t love this baked egg dish for breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner!
