Looking for an easy egg dish to serve at your next brunch? This is it!

Straight out of the Test Kitchen is this Baked Eggs, an easy and delicious recipe to whip up for your next brunch or a busy weekday dinner! The secret to the velvety texture of this egg bake lies in the heavy cream that coats the baking dish. Not only does it prevent sticking, but it also creates a velvety sauce that complements the dish.

You can add additional ingredients like diced tomatoes, cooked potatoes, or even a sprinkle of herbs like thyme or rosemary for a burst of freshness.

We used an enamel-coated 3-quart cast iron roaster, but this recipe is easily adaptable to any baking dish or roaster pan you have.

This dish pairs beautifully with a side of crispy toast or a light salad, making it perfect for any meal of the day.
