Beemster Baked Eggs

Nothing says love like a little breakfast in bed, especially if accompanied by a Bloody Mary, or two! Show your mom some love tomorrow with these deliciously easy baked eggs.    With only five ingredients and a fifteen minute prep time, these baked eggs are so foolproof, even a young child can help put this one together.  Trust me, you'll make mom's day if you start her off with this fabulous breadfast!

Recipe developed for Beemster

Prep time: 
Cook time: 

Serving size: 6

6 brioche buns 
2 tablespoons butter, melted 
3/4 cup shredded Beemster Mild Gouda
6 slices ham (about 1-ounce each) 
  6 large eggs

Preheat the oven to 375°F. Cut a 3 to 4-inch wide hole in the tops of the rolls and hollow out. Brush the insides of rolls with melted butter and add 1 tablespoon Beemster Gouda to each roll. Cut each ham slice in half and use both halves to line each roll. Carefully crack an egg into each roll.

Arrange rolls on baking sheet and cover them loosely with aluminum foil. Bake for 20 minutes or until the eggs are set. Sprinkle each roll with 1 tablespoon Beemster Gouda. Bake for 3 minutes or until Beemster is melted and the eggs are desired doneness.


Brioche is a pastry of French origin.  I chose a Brioche bun for this recipe since it's high egg and butter content give it a rich and tender crumb.  These buns are widely available in supermarkets.  Check the bakery section for them.  If you can't find them, any small bun will work just as well.

Baked, fried or poached eggs are all the rage these days.  And while this is a great breakfast in bed recipe, no need to limit yourself.  This is great for breakfast, brunch or even a light dinner.
