Baked Eggs With Salsa

"A hot breakfast meal that's definitely a new favorite of mine to make in the morning. A different way to make eggs interesting and delicious again with a little southwestern influence. Personally I prefer mine with a hotter salsa to liven things up as well as mushrooms mixed into the salsa. A modified recipe from one on Foodnetwork. I've also upped the amount of salsa based on the review and I think mushrooms added to this would be great as well."

  1. Delicious! And perfect for Weight Watchers!! 2 points
  2. It tasted good but I had too much salsa left over although we didn’t measure it in first place. Also I heated up the salsa and cooked the eggs separately so basically did not follow the recipe at all. Great if you have an abundance of salsa due to your family buying in bulk.
  3. So yummy! Lots of opportunity to add so many different ingredients!
  4. I made this recipe as written. I used a medium hot locally made salsa. Instead of using a skillet I used individual baking cups. I oiled each cup and put about 2 tablespoons of salsa in the bottom of each cup before proceeding with the remainder of the recipe. My wife and I enjoyed this new spin on making eggs and I will definitely make this again. Thank you for sharing.
  5. Found this little gem while looking for easy ways to punch up eggs. I used salsa of medium heat, which was just right for us. I did not add the green onion since the salsa used already had onion in it. After 15 minutes of baking, the yolks of my extra-large eggs were firm; I would suggest checking the eggs after about 10 minutes. I like my yolks to be firm, so it was just right for me. Served with corn tortillas that I wrapped in foil and warmed alongside the eggs in the oven.


I'm a med school student that loves to cook. You might have guessed though that being a college student doesn't give me a whole lot of money to spend on ingredients and such. So instead, whenever I go home, I try to cook something new for parents.
