Oven Baked Eggs with Sausage, Peppers & Onions are super easy to make yet absolutely delicious. They’re also elegant and perfect for special occasions, like Mother’s Day.
Oven baked eggs with sausage, peppers and onions are as good as they sound. Peppers and onions are a classic pairing; and when topped with sausage, they bring a familiar Italian taste. When you crack the eggs on top of this base and bake them to perfection (“perfection” = when egg whites are set and egg yolks are running) you have a winner!
This breakfast is so easy to make, yet it really is elegant and capable of “wowing” your guests. It can work beautifully for Mother’s Day brunch, or for any other occasion worthy of a little extra breakfast punch. If you’re an out-of-the-box chef, you can also serve it as a dinner. Why not? It has proteins and veggies and will surely satisfy.
The steps are very easy to follow:
- Peel your onion and cut in half, then in slices;
- Cut your pepper in small slices;
- Heat up some oil or butter in a pan and sauté onions and peppers until soft (about 10 minutes);
- In the meantime, bake your favorite breakfast sausage in your toaster oven ( I used Maple Chicken as that’s the one my whole family loves the most – we use Applegate – I am not affiliated with this company, we just simply love their meats);
- Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F;
- Once the sausage and onion/pepper mixture is done, spray ramekins with cooking oil;
- Create a base of peppers/onions at the bottom of the ramekins;
- Add sliced sausages;
- Crack the eggs on top;
- Season with salt and pepper, and;
- Bake for 15-20 minutes, until egg whites are set, but egg yolks are still runny.
