Smaller sized eggs are better

In most of my baked goods recipes, I assume most people will default to large eggs. But for this recipe, smaller size eggs, like US small, or US medium, will work better. If you don’t mind with overflowing, you can push it with US large eggs, but definitely not US extra large. Trust me, it will be a messy affair cleaning up your oven afterwards.

One bowl and one whisk

This is a very easy recipe. To mix the recipe, you only need to put all batter ingredients in a bowl, and hand whisk until smooth. Next, just divide batter to fill 6 standard size muffin cups, and top each with an egg, and sprinkle with salt, pepper, and parsley. After 25 minutes of baking, you will be greeted with a wonderful egg bread for breakfast.

    Looks great. Can Egg Bread freeze for another days? I have problemed with freezed baked eggs becoming very blanded and soaked up freezed water. Any solutions?

    • Anita says:

      LT, I don't freeze, but just store leftovers in an air-tight container inside my fridge (not freezer). They are good for up to 5 days in the fridge. I simply reheat the one I want to eat in microwave for 20-30 seconds, and the bread become warm and fluffy again, and the egg is looking none the worse. :)

    I'll be making these soon! They look great and I'm glad I won't have to buy a special pan. When the eggs are cracked and placed on top, do they sink to the middle as they bake? Thank you in advance for your help! :)

    • Anita says:

      The eggs will usually sink to the middle on their own during baking. Also, be sure to choose smaller size eggs so the batter don't overflow.
