Comfort food at its finest, Baked Eggs

Ah, I can believe I neglected to write something about these delicious eggs. They are easy to throw together and the ingredient options are endless, I am thinking of sautéing some spinach with garlic and sausage next time instead of the ground beef. Make these and be happy!

Baked Eggs


  • 1 lb ground beef
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 jalapeño, minced
  • 1/2 small onion (white, yellow, red, or use 4 green onions), diced
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 1/2 tsp crushed red pepper flakes (optional)
  • 3/4 cup crumbled feta
  • 8 eggs (2 eggs per ramekin)
  • 6 tbsp heavy cream
  • 4 ramekins, liberally buttered


  1. Heat oven to 350°F.
  2. In a skillet over medium heat, brown the ground beef with salt and pepper and the tbsp of coconut oil. Use a spoon to break up the meat as it browns.
  3. Drain the meat and set it aside.
  4. In the same skillet, sauté the jalapeño, onion, and garlic for 5-7 minutes, until the onions are translucent.
  5. Stir the ground beef into the onion mixture, and sprinkle with crushed red pepper flakes if you are using them.
  6. Place buttered ramekins on a cookie sheet.
  7. Scoop the ground beef evenly between the ramekins, filling them only half-full, and pressing down make them level.
  8. Distribute the crumbled feta between the ramekins, sprinkling it evenly across the meat mixture.
  9. Crack two eggs into each ramekin and drizzle each with 1 1/2 tbsp of heavy cream. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  10. Bake the ramekins in the oven for 15 minutes, turning half-way through. If you want hard yolks, bake for 20 minutes.
  11. Remove from oven and dig in. Remember it is hot!
