I used a single serving stainless steel cup which is oven safe, but you may use any small sized oven safe single serving dish.
You basically just crack and slip an egg to the greased baking dish and bake it for few minutes until the yellow and white are cooked completely.
It is so easy to do and you don’t need to use many utensils as you just need to use a single oven safe dish to bake the egg.
This method is especially very useful, if you are cooking something in the stove top and so the stove top is not free to fry an egg.
