Notes
Baking dish or ramekins You can use either, I personally like serving them individually and that also means everyone gets to choose the additions they like The Cheese: I usually use sharp Cheddar, it adds more flavor and the kids love the little pools of melted cheese but you can use any cheese you like. Smoked cheese, feta and Emmental are great with eggs too. No matter what cheese combo I use, I always add parmesan to the milk or cream for flavor Herbs herbs de Provence, oregano and basil from the dry department work beautifully with baked eggs Vegetables: Spinach, onions, tomatoes are great choices to add variety to your baked eggs but keep in mind that you need to saute them before adding them to the eggs for two reasons. For one they take longer to cook so if you add them raw, the eggs will be done before the vegetables get a chance to be cooked through. The other reason is to reduce the water content. If you add the vegetables raw your baked eggs will turn soggy Salt: if you decide to add cheese to your baked eggs just remember that you need to reduce the salt. You can always add salt but you can’t take it away
