Start your day off right with these quick and easy baked eggs.

Looking for a quick and easy egg recipe to start your day off right? No need to scramble, flip, or fry. As long as you can turn on an oven, you are one step closer to being an instant Master Chef.

I call these Perfect Lazy Eggs because outside of cracking the eggs you don’t really need to do anything.  In fact, you can pretty much forget about them while they are in the oven (just make sure to keep a timer close by so you don’t over cook).  Whether you are cooking for one or 20, each egg comes out looking and tasting the same.  Clean up is also a cinch.  These little guys pop right out of the muffin tin and you have no pans to scrub.  I promise that once you try these, you will change the way you look at cooking eggs.

You can add your Lazy Eggs to breakfast sandwiches, in place of poached eggs for Eggs Benedict or even enjoy them plain with slice of toast.  If you have any left overs and want to reheat, place in a microwave safe bowl with a 1/2 teaspoon of water and warm for 30 seconds in the microwave.

A couple of things to note: Make sure to follow your timer.  The tops of the yolks may not look cooked when you pull them from the oven but do not let this worry you.  The best way to describe the effect is that the yolk has glazed over.  This is fine.  I also recommend cooking directly into the muffin tins without any muffin wrappers.  I have had mixed results with the muffin wrappers and the eggs seem to stick to the paper.
