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.
There is also nothing complicated about this recipe, which makes it a perfect morning meal, which means I’m going to recommend you try it for breakfast tomorrow! Now go get some ricotta cause that’s probably all your missing!
Do you get sick of eggs? What are your favorite ways to change up breakfast? Leave me a comment to let me know!
