Shirred Eggs

So you want a “real” breakfast but don’t have the time to make anything elaborate?

Solution:   Shirred Eggs.  It’s just a fancy way of saying, a baked egg.

This is my go-to breakfast when I grow tired of running out the door with just a piece of dry toast and a banana. It’s easy to make and you never grow tired of it because you can make it a thousand different ways. Seriously, I never make it the same way twice. I prepare them before I jump in the shower and by the time I get out, WALLA, breakfast is ready! I’m pretty nice and cook a few of these in case anyone wants one. I don’t usually get an actual thank you from anyone but rather a dirty dish in the sink which signifies to me it was good. That’s thanks enough. 🙂

I usually use pre-chopped ingredients that I have in the refrigerator or I chop them up the night before to make my morning prep painless. Because we eat pizza A LOT, we usually have a ton of chopped ingredients to choose from on any given day. Today I used bacon, tomatoes, spinach, and of course eggs.

Don’t like your eggs runny? Just bake them longer. Like your eggs runny? Cook them for a shorter amount of time. You choose the ingredients, you choose the cook time. It’s a win win either way.
