Mexican Baked Eggs

Home | Recipes | Breakfast | Mexican Classics

We first discovered this Mexican Baked Eggs recipe on a recent trip to San Miguel. El Correo restaurant is just off the main square and right next door to a lovely bakery. They open early and serve a whole host of yummy Mexican breakfast dishes served with freshly baked pastries from the bakery.

This baked eggs recipe is super quick and easy to make. Just make sure you have some sourdough toast to dip into the runny egg yolks and tomatillo sauce. If you are having a weekend brunch, simply use a larger dish and more ingredients to serve more people. A larger dish might require a little more baking time.

If you like the look of these baked eggs you should definitely also check out our huevos rancheros recipe and chilaquiles recipe.

  • At the bottom of the baking dish, before you put the salsa in, you can put small bits of toast.
