Good morning! Well, even if it isn’t morning time, we have a fun, easy, and creative recipe to share with you today. We’re going to bake eggs in a mason jar lid! 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. 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.

  • 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!
