Herb Baked Eggs over Toast
I have been wanting to make this Ina Garten recipe ever since I first saw it. I had to adapt the recipe a bit to use what I had on hand and they turned out amazing. My husband and I loved these eggs – we especially loved the flavor of the herbs and Parmesan gave to them. I served our baked eggs over toast for a delicious and light breakfast.
How to Make Herb Baked Eggs over Toast
- 1 tbsp milk or heavy cream
- 1 tsp butter
- 3 eggs
- 1 tsp fresh chives, chopped
- 1/2 tsp fresh thyme, leaves removed from stem
- 1 tsp Parmesan, grated
- Sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste
How to Make Herb Baked Eggs over Toast
Add the milk and butter to a small baking dish. Place under the broiler and cook until warm and bubbly, about 1 minute. Remove from broiler.
Crack the eggs into a small bowl, being careful to keep the yolks whole. Carefully pour the eggs into the baking dish with milk and butter. Sprinkle the top of the eggs evenly with the chives, thyme leaves, and Parmesan cheese then season with sea salt and freshly cracked pepper to taste.
Place under the broiler and cook for 3-4 minutes or until the whites are set but the yolks are still soft. Serve plain or on top of buttered toast. Enjoy.

Looks like a wonderful spring breakfast.
yum, love ina garten!
looks lovely! i think i know what i'll be making this weekend 🙂
YUM! I love baked eggs. Although, my recipes calls for cooking the eggs in a tomato/sausage sauce. So good to mop it all up with crusty bread.
I think I'll have breakfast for dinner tonight 😉
A blissful breakfast for you, for sure. 😉
Awesome! I've been looking for more ways to cook eggs! This looks so yummy.
I thought this looked delicious when I saw Ina do her's. Thanks for the push that I needed. It's perfect for breakfast, lunch or a light dinner.
This would be good with the egg cooked in the bread too!
What a lovely breakfast!
Pam, thanks for dropping by my blog! This baked eggs look great, I think my son will like it!
Oh,I love Ina's recipes and this looks delicious!
I have made this recipe before (as written) and it is so delicious! I love how you lightened it up, Pam! Now I can make it and not feel as guilty! I see you omitted the garlic and rosemary. I love the garlic in this dish, but I can see that with young children you would want to omit it! I love that you served it over toast, too! YUM!

Beautiful breakfast. My husband would love this. Thanks for sharing.
