    1. 1
      In France, this basic methods of baked eggs is called oeufs en cocotte which means "eggs baked in ramekins.".
    2. 2
      You can bake eggs nestled in other foods such as rice, vegetables or sauces. These foods should be heated before the eggs are added for faster and more even cooking. Make indentations in the heated food with the back of a spoon, about 2-inch diameter.
    3. 3
      For individual servings of baked eggs, use baking dishes (ramekins, custard cups, individual soufflé dishes, or small oval bakers) that just fit the eggs plus the flavoring, food, or liquid.

      For each serving, lightly butter an individual oven-proof baking dish or ramekin.
    7. 7
      Break one or two eggs into each dish. Season with salt and pepper. Spoon 1 tablespoon milk or cream over eggs (skim milk, low-fat milk, half and half, or light cream may be substituted). Spooning a liquid over the eggs can help prevent drying out.
    8. 8
      Bake in preheated oven approximately 12 to 14 minutes, depending on number of servings being baked. Check the eggs after about 10 minutes baking time. When done, the whites should be completely set and the yolks beginning to thicken but not hard.
