Baked eggs with cheese and herbs

Simple. Straight forward. You can play around with the ingredients and make it your way. I just had some cheese and eggs sitting in my fridge and Upasana and I were trying very hard to battle midnight cravings for eggs. I did not want either of us to sweat over a stove that late. Well, we did a little bit eventually. Anyways, the result was good. Tummy happy, us happy and all in the world was good again. Ok I have gotten carried away, but we do really love eggs.


2 eggs

A pinch of fresh/dried thyme

2 tbsp cheese (processed/cheddar/just any kind)

¼ cup cooked veggies (carrot, capsicum, beans) finely chopped and seasoned with salt and pepper

1 tsp butter


Line the cooked veggies on the bottom of your ramekin or baking dish. Add the 1 tbsp of the cheese. Break 2 eggs into it carefully. Season with salt and pepper. Top it with the remaining cheese. Bake in a pre-heated oven (200C) for about 10 minutes or till the cheese melts.

At this point it’s pretty much you and your bowl of comfort. Dig in and don’t leave the dirty bowl beside your bed!
