Baked Eggs


What do you usually feed your kids for breakfast before sending them to school? About a month ago, one of the readers’ posed this universal question to me via email. As parents, we are all aware that a good breakfast is essential to help kids stay focus in the classroom and to get them through the first half of the day in school. So, over the next few postings, I will address that question by sharing some of my kids’ favorite home-cooked breakfasts. Today, I will start with my son’s favorite Baked Eggs breakfast recipe. It’s a cinch to make, just crack a couple of eggs into the prepared ramekins with some cream, scallions, chopped tomatoes, and bake in the oven for about 13 to 15 minutes. Serve the baked eggs with some toast, fruits, and juice. Kids love it.

  1. That looks so pretty. And this makes a perfect brunch dish. Guests can even customize the toppings/fillings.

  2. Beautiful dish, I want it. My kids seem to have inherited their father's Italian no wish for breakfast gene. I think I'll make this for myself!

  3. How are the eggs done after 15 mins in the oven? They look half-cooked in the picture with the yolks perfect for dipping! A chef's version of traditional half-boiled eggs? ;-)

  4. ugh baked eggs are the bane of my existence. I can never get the yolks to be soft; they're always overcooked. Do you have any special tricks?

    :)

  8. @KY: The egg white is fully set and the yolk is slightly runny. Yes, the egg yolks are perfect for dipping.

    @savoryseduction:I don't have any trick; it's merely the cooking timing.

  9. @Anonymous: I am not familiar with microwave oven. I think the cooking procedure with traditional oven and microwave might be a little different.

Dumplings

I'm actually laughing at myself! What have I got into? Trying to make dumplings?? Well, I have seen my late grandmother make them a long time ago. I can remember the ingredients but not the measurements! So, it took me about two hours to come up with the perfect recipes, and I'm glad I did! It was an instant hit! They were all gone, all gobbled up!

Make the dough first, add about 480 to 500g of all-purpose flour with 300ml of water. Knead the dough and let it rest. You should be able to make 40 dumplings with the dough. Meanwhile, prepare the filling for the dumplings. Click here for the dumpling wrappers video.
