This recipe for Baked Eggs with Ricotta & Thyme is a nice change from traditional eggs. The rich flavor and creamy texture make a perfect breakfast.

We eat a lot of eggs here. I mean A LOT, like every day, maybe even twice a day (it’s happened before!). Often these eggs are some form of scrambled, which means one morning I add sautéed spinach and the other I do not. So there ya go…

With all this egg consumption sometimes, believe it or not, I do get sick of eggs. But seriously this happens about every other week so I find I need to change up the eggs a bit and baking them is one of my favorite ways to do so.

Let me just say, if you’re tired of eggs then the Baked Eggs with Ricotta & Thyme is here to save the day! This dish is the creamiest and happiest (is that possible?) of all breakfasts! I’m talking happier than a Happy Meal kind of happy. Sorry, I’m going off the deep end here (I blame lack of sleep).

Seriously though! This dish is one I don’t often put in the rotation for whatever reason I have no idea, but that’s gonna change.

    These look lovely. I’m making them for Christmas brunch. Should I expect the yolks to harden as well, or will they stay runny?

      Hey Caitlin, I’m so glad to hear you’re making these for Christmas brunch! You have to send me pics. This will depend slightly on your oven, but if you cook the dishes for slightly under 25 minutes then the yolks will be runny, but if you leave them in for slightly longer (and I’m talking minutes here) then they’ll harden. It’s entirely up to you how you want the eggs to turn out. Good luck!
