Baked eggs are ideal for a low-maintenance breakfast that’s also hearty and satisfying. Oftentimes, baked eggs are prepared in bowls with a bit of tomato sauce. To make this version even more versatile, we baked eggs in beds of heavy cream, so, in case they’re part of a larger brunch, they work equally well with accompanying dishes that are both savory and sweet. You’ll crack eggs into individual ramekins with cream, then bake them in a 425-degree oven for 12 or 12 minutes. Just enough time to pour some orange juice and coffee, chop up a little fruit, and set up the buffet.
