Insider Information

Baked eggs are also called shirred eggs. Spooning liquid over eggs while they bake, or sprinkling them with shredded cheese can help prevent drying.

One-dish meals: Eggs can be baked nestled in other foods such as rice, vegetables or sauces. For faster, more even cooking, these foods should be heated before the eggs are added. Make indentations in the heated food with the back of a spoon, about 2-inch diameter. Break and slip one egg into each indentation, or into sauce. Bake as above.

For stovetop "baked" egg dishes, prepare recipe in a skillet. Cook, covered, over medium heat until whites are completely set and yolks begin to thicken but are not hard. (Eggs & Hash Brown Skillet; Creamy Pasta & Egg Skillet)
