How to Bake Eggs in a Mason Jar Lid
Good morning! Well, even if it isn’t morning time, we have a fun, easy, and creative recipe to share with you today! We cook eggs in our house regularly, as I’m sure you do too. We also use eggs for baking and in some of our most favorite recipes. I’ve partnered with the American Egg Board to bring you a perfect recipe if you are in a hurry or feeding a crowd. Grab some mason jar lids and preheat your oven! In just about 10 minutes, you’ll have baked a bunch of perfect “over-easy” or “sunny side up” eggs.
I can’t wait to show you this awesome recipe for making mason jar lid eggs in the oven!
Eggs are a delicious and nutritious. Well, one large egg has 6 grams of high-quality protein AND nine essential amino acids, all for 70 calories. That’s why starting your day with eggs is so important! This baked egg recipe is one that you are sure to use time and time again.
To bake eggs in mason jar lids, you will need the following supplies:
- Standard size mason jar lids (not wide mouth lids). These lids are available at any grocery store!
- Baking sheet
- Non-stick baking spray or butter
Watch how these mason jar lid eggs are made!
Recipe for making mason jar lid eggs in the oven:
- Preheat your oven to 325°F
- Prepare a mason jar lid with non-stick spray or butter to prevent sticking
- Place the mason jar lids upside down on a baking sheet
- Crack 1 egg into each mason jar lid.
- Bake the eggs for 10 – 15 minutes or until you see them start to bubble.
- Remove the eggs from the oven and let them cool for a minute or so on the baking sheet.
- Using a protective oven mitt, remove the eggs from the lids (they will slide right out!). If an egg needs a little help sliding out, a simple butter knife around the edge of the mason jar will do the trick.
Do you like your sunny side up eggs runny? Bake them for less time. If you prefer your eggs to be cooked all the way through, bake them a little longer!
The BEST part about this egg recipe is that you can walk away from the eggs while they are cooking. When you fry or scramble eggs the traditional way, you certainly can’t do that!
We love baking eggs in mason jar lids on busy mornings. Who can’t use an extra 10 minutes to get ready while breakfast is cooking? This is also a great way to serve eggs over easy to a large group while saving lots of time in the kitchen.
Did you know that these mason jar eggs fit perfectly over an English muffin? I love when two things go together like that. It’s almost as if they were meant to be!
