  • Gently crack an egg and slip it into the greased baking dish.
  • Bake for about 12 to 14 minutes until the egg yolk and white are completely cooked.
  • Transfer the baked egg immediately from the oven (you can use good quality tongs to handle the hot dish), or else it would affect the texture of the egg.

You can serve it as it is or you can serve it with veggies like sauteed spinach or oven roasted cauliflower or toast or noodles or anything you wish!
