Angel's Baked Eggs

Savoury, healthy and classic baked eggs
My recipe

The blissful part of a weekend is waking up late, 😉 past the breakfast hour, too starving to wait for lunch and so brunch it often is.. 😊 Free of all week's hurries; chit chatting with family and slurping delicious food together!! 😊

This dish is something that's often on the menu for a lazy weekend brunch at home. But, you could also serve this savoury, baked egg dish packed with a healthy amount of veggies for breakfast, lunch or dinner.. An any time meal! 😊

No! this is not Shakshouka nor Mexican eggs. Neither is this dish inspired from them.. It's The Angel's baked eggs.. 😊 The name has a surreptitious tale of a little girl who bravely fought and surpassed a nightmare solitary! 😌 

Ingredients :

Bell peppers (yellow, orange, green and red)

1/2 of each

Button Mushrooms  

1 cup chopped

White or brown onion

1/2 or whole


1 large

Cilantro / Coriander leaves

A handful (coarsely chopped)

Sesame seeds

1 teaspoon


To taste

Black pepper (freshly ground)

As required

Dried Oregano

1/2 teaspoon

Black olives

1/2 cup

Fresh eggs

5 or 6 nos.

Oil or butter

As required

Preparation Method :

Wash and chop all the Veggies. You could either bake the eggs in the oven or slow cook them on the stove itself. If you prefer baking it in the oven, set to preheat at 180 degrees now. Make sure you use an oven-proof skillet in that case.

 I simply loveeee colours in my food! Natural, healthy colours I mean! :)

Roughly crush the sesame seeds to release the flavour and oils. In a hot skillet, pour in some olive oil or melt some butter and add the sesame seeds.

When it begins to sputter, add the onions and sauté on high for half a minute. Then add the Mushrooms and sauté until all the water evaporates and the onion and mushroom being to brown.

Then add the chopped peppers. Season with salt and pepper. If you like the dish a bit spicy, add more pepper.

Add the dried oregano and sauté until the bell peppers too are well roasted and the oil begins to clear at the bottom of the skillet.

Move the veggies to a plate. and retain the oil in the skillet and reduce the heat to medium.

Lay the sliced tomatoes on the pan and cook for a minute. Then turn them over.

Sprinkle some cilantro over the tomatoes. Season with a pinch of salt and some pepper.

Top that with the roasted veggies and top with some olives.

Make five or six gentle depressions on the surface of the veggie mix with your spatula and crack open an egg each into them, so that the yolk sits well into the veggies.

Sprinkle on the rest of the chopped cilantro and if baking, bake in the oven for 5-6 minutes if you'd like your yolks half done, or 8-10 minutes, if you like your yolks almost well done. If you prefer cooking on the stove itself, reduce the heat to low and cover with a tight lid and slow cook for 5 minutes.

Then turn off the heat and do not open the lid until another 5 minutes. Allow it to cook in the remaining heat inside.

This is a meal in itself. If you like to have some carbohydrates, you could have it with breads of your choice. 

Enjoy with a refreshing glass of smoothie / fresh fruit juice / coffee or tea. If you'd like to have an elaborate meal, you could serve it with garlic bread! It's awesome! :)
