Eggs with Sun-Dried Tomatoes Final Picture

I had left over sun-dried tomatoes from a recent Turkey Meatloaf with Sun-Dried Tomatoes dinner and did not want them to go to waste. I dislike throwing out ingredients because there is not another recipe to use them. My husband loves having a nice breakfast on the weekends and typically it includes an egg dish. Greg thought the sun-dried tomatoes would be good with eggs so we tried out a baked egg recipe. I happened to have some fresh basil and Italian cheese that mixed well with the sun-dried tomatoes. We had enough for breakfast and some left over for the next day. The sun-dried tomatoes added a real nice sweetness to the dish. When I was dicing them there was an aroma that reminded me of summer. You may want to add more to the recipe or use as a garnish. This dish would go well with my Whole Wheat Banana Pecan Pancakes. While the egg dish is baking, you can make your pancakes or even Home-Fried Potatoes.

I would also like to thank “Cooking With Sapana: A Collection of Indian Cuisines” for nominating me for the Super Sweet Blogging Award! It is always nice when someone appreciates your blog enough to nominate you for an award! Please visit her blog here for some wonderful Indian recipes and great pictures.

10 Eggs, large
2 Tbsp Half-and-Half, or Milk
3 Tbsp Sun-Dried Tomatoes, packed in oil, chopped
2 Tbsp Onion, minced or chopped

Eggs with Sun-Dried Tomatoes ingredients

Preheat oven to 375°F. Spray a small casserole dish with cooking spray.

In a large bowl whisk the eggs and half-and-half until well combined. Stir in the remaining ingredients. Pour in the egg mixture into the small casserole dish. Place the dish in the oven, and bake 35 minutes. I like to bake mine until the egg mixture reaches 160 degrees.

Serve with additional sun-dried tomatoes and dried basil.

    I’ve never tried baked eggs before, but I’m always looking for new, savory breakfast recipes! I have a sweet tooth and thrive on French toast and pancakes, but my fiancé loves hearty and savory dishes. I think he would love these eggs. Thanks for sharing!

      Your welcome! I hope your fiance enjoys them and they are easy to make. I like when you can bake eggs since it is easier. My only tip is to not over bake them. You might need to watch them near the end in case they are done sooner depending upon your oven and what you select to bake them in.

  7. I have never made baked eggs… I really must try it. It sounds so delicious… love the addition of fresh basil too.

    1. Bernice says:

      It is a nice way to make them without having to watch them cook on the stovetop. I love fresh basil which made it even better! 🙂
