  • 4 bread buns tops sliced off and insides removed.
  • 1/2 cup shredded Monterey jack cheese divided
  • 4 BurnBrae Eggs large
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 Tablespoon fresh thyme leaves
  • 1/4 cup baby tomato sliced in half


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Remove the insides of your bread to a point where the bun can keep its structure while still fit the egg.
  3. sprinkle half the cheese evenly between the bread bottoms. It should be a small layer that covers the bottoms of the bread.
  4. Crack the eggs one at a time into a bowl, and gently pour one egg in to each bread.
  5. Season the eggs with salt, pepper, fresh thymes and sprinkle the tomatoes on top.
  6. Bake the eggs for 20-25 minutes until the egg white has set.
  7. For a hard yolk, switch the oven to broiler. Broil the buns for 1-2 minutes.
  8. Sprinkle the remaining cheese over the eggs and place it back in the oven for 2-3 minutes until the cheese has melted.
  9. Enjoy!

Recipe Notes

-Pick quality eggs.
-Make sure the eggs you’re baking are all the same size so they bake evenly.
-Adjust the done-ness of the yolks by using the broiler after baking.
-Add any topping you prefer to the baked eggs as long as they can cook at the same time as the eggs.
-Sprinkle a layer of cheese at the bottom of the bread to avoid a soggy bread.
-Season your eggs generously since the bread is plain.
-Serve the baked eggs right away or store them in the fridge and rewarm them in an oven for 5 minutes.
