Feather Bed Eggs

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by SJG3483

This egg dish is light and fluffy without the mess of omelet pans. Use any vegetables and cheese that you would put in an omelet. You can prepare it overnight or just before you bake it.

DH loved these eggs, thought they were a 5 plus, I thought they were a nice change and very tasty. I just made half a recipe for the two of us. Used fresh sliced tomatoes and fresh chives from the garden with cheddar cheese and 2% milk, salt and pepper with dried basil. I will be making these again, nice easy breakfast for company. Thanks for sharing. — May 4, 2005, 1 member found this helpful These were so good the last time I did them I decided to do them for some special guests from Holland for breakfast, every one decided the were definately a 5* recipe, again thanks for posting!
