What you need to make herb baked eggs in the oven.

Just a few simple ingredients make these baked eggs a delicious addition to my morning. I love that it is not only full of flavor, but protein, to keep me feeling full and give me energy to start my day. 

  • Eggs
  • Half and half
  • fresh chives and basil
  • arugula
  • seasoned salt

The half-and-half makes the eggs super creamy and yummy. But if you don’t have it on hand, you can also use plain milk or even heavy cream. I haven’t tried these with a dairy-free alternative so I’m not sure if that would be a good substitution.

Chopped herbs add a lot of flavor without a lot of calories. I try to incorporate fresh herbs wherever I can in my recipes! I used chives and basil but you can use any herbs you like.

Add the chopped herbs to the half and half in the mug.

Step 3

Add the eggs to the mug and give them a quick whip with a fork to add some air and make them fluffy.

Step 4

I add a little bit of seasoned salt to give them flavor but that part is totally up to you! They are also tasty with celery salt and sometimes I like to add a little red pepper flake for an extra kick. You can also use just plain salt and pepper.

This is the part of the recipe that you can totally make your own.

Step 5

Put the mug in the oven. Bake for about 20 minutes, until just set.

The eggs will pull away from the sides of the mug a bit, and you shouldn’t see any loose liquid anywhere.

Once they are done, I let the herb baked eggs cool for a minute, then top them with arugula. The arugula adds a tasty peppery flavor, a nice crunchy texture and another layer of freshness.
