Tropical Baked Eggs

I’ve never made baked eggs before, but had an idea and ran with it. Boy, am I glad I did because baked eggs are delicious! Why did I wait so long to try this? You can do so many variations and combinations (sweet, savory, veggie-loaded, meat-loaded, etc.) and it’s a nice switch from my usual sunny-side up or over easy eggs in the morning. I will definitely be playing with baked eggs some more.

I decided on the tropical flavors because well, my mind is two months ahead of me … in Hawaii. Jesse and I are going to Oahu in December, right after I finish finals and I am so excited. He told me to settle down because it’s still two months away, but I figure there’s nothing wrong with being a little giddy, right? I especially can’t wait now that rainy season has kicked in here. Ahead lies many gray days, crazy winds and wet weather. On these days, a little touch of tropical in my breakfast is nice and can at least make me feel warm inside.

Feel free to double or triple this recipe to fill more ramekins. I only made it for myself, so stuck with a single serving.

Ingredients:

  • 2 pastured eggs
  • 2-3 Tbsp unsweetened coconut shreds
  • 1/4 of a banana, sliced in quarters (don’t use a green banana)
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • Splash of full-fat coconut milk
  • Coconut oil, for greasing ramekin

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Grease a ramekin with coconut oil. Sprinkle the coconut shreds on the bottom and sides of the ramekin. The oil will help it stick.
  3. Gently crack two eggs into the ramekin and top with a pinch of sea salt. Put your quartered banana slices around the edge of the ramekin and add the dollop of milk (probably 1/2 – 1 Tbsp). Add a little bit more coconut shreds around the edge, on top of the banana.
  4. Place ramekin inside pan and fill with water. Carefully place in oven, being careful not to spill the water!
  5. Bake for 15 – 20 minutes. If you don’t like your yolk runny, bake for longer to your desired doneness. I served mine with a little homemade granola on top and extra banana sprinkled with cinnamon. Sausage or bacon would pair well with this too, and you could dip it in the runny yolks!

      It was actually the first time I made something in a ramekin! I have a few of them, but always use them for desserts, yogurt, fruit, etc.
