Hello! I have for you a delicious inspiration how to use eggs. Baked eggs, an easy and frugal recipe!

Baked eggs - This is a frugal and easy recipe which is great for weeknight dinners with your family. Put mashed potatoes, vegetables, eggs and bacon all in one dish and there you have a delicious dinner idea! Easy and frugal recipe!

Oh, what’s going on here? You surely know eggs in many variations like scrambled eggs, frittata, omelette or only boiled.

Well, this eggs here are baked in the oven. Yes, great idea huh?

It’s a really simple recipe for a weeknight dinner with your family. We mummies have always a look at the financial side. So this recipe is a sort of frugal recipe.

You can use simple ingredients which you have at home. If you don’t have bacon, you can use salami or ham instead. So did I the last time I’ve made this dish and Junior was so pleased because he doesn’t like bacon so much.

Use vegetables which you have in your freezer or fridge. Everything is ok!

This recipe starts with the making of a sort of mashed potatoes. I usually add some butter and milk to make the potatoes creamy. But if you don’t like to use butter, you can use olive oil instead and leave the milk out.

The vegetables are just sauteed in a pan and added to mashed potatoes with delicious Italian herbs. A great flavour for mashed potatoes.

The mashed potatoes and the vegetables are spread in an oven-proof dish and with a tablespoon make some bulges for the eggs. After that, the eggs take place in the bulges.

  1. Emmi, this looks so good, I’ve never seen baked eggs before. There are so many vegetable combos that we can pair up with the eggs. And I love that it all comes together in one pan in the oven. Delish and simple, my favorite dinner!

  2. What a unique way to use up mashed potatoes, too! Love it. I think I’d have to cook the bacon on the side, though. I can’t handle ‘wiggly’ bacon, and I fear that baking this until it was crisp would overcook the rest of the dish.
