Baked eggs with veggies (and optional bacon)

Updated: Feb 20

This is a super breakfast, full of protein and a great way to use-up veggies, cooked or raw. Plus I think it looks quite impressive to put in front of someone, or yourself for that matter!


  • Any raw of left over cooked veggies. Particularly good are red peppers, onions, cherry tomatoes and mushrooms, leeks or cooked potato - finely chopped. Allow one large handful per person

  • Two free range eggs per person

  • Chopped back bacon (optional)

  • Good quality seeded, sourdough or wholemeal bread

  • Lots of seasoning

  • A muffin tin or preferably a silicone muffin tray


  • Preheat the oven to 200 degrees

  • if using, put the chopped bacon in the pan and cook until it starts to produce some fat then cook / brown the veg as in the next step. If opting for veggies only, add a little oil to a pan and fry up the vegetables until they are either cooked (if raw) or just browned (if cooked). Season well.

  • Place your muffin tin or silicone tray on a baking sheet. Put a small layer of veg (and bacon) mixture into the bottom of two muffin holes per person (about a third up the inside of the muffin hole.

  • Crack an egg into each muffin hole.

  • Bake in the oven for approximately 10 minutes or depending how well done you like your eggs

  • Serve on toast - you could add some mashed avocado too!

  • Sprinkle with herbs or some smoked paprika and some more seasoning to really finish it off.

NUTRITION TIP: A protein breakfast (rather than a plain cereal option) will keep you more full for longer. Eggs are are a high quality source of protein, they can raise the level of 'good' cholesterol, provide Vitamin D (essential for immunity) and provide a good source of Omega 3. This recipe also gives you veggies and any recipe which increases your intake of vegetables is a very good thing! If you make them and you're on social media, do post a super photo with the # themindfuleatingclinic. xx

Here's an oozy photo, doesn't that look tempting?
