Christmas Baked Eggs + My Holiday Menus

These delicious baked eggs are as simple as simple gets – and yet, they only happen around here on Christmas morning. Because even though they are simple, they are special. Very, very special. Something happens when those eggs are baked with a bit of cream, salt and pepper. Soft and tender and almost buttery in flavor (thanks there creamy cream), these eggs are divine. And they are shockingly simple to get together which is great for Christmas morning when the kids have other ideas about priorities.
My kids were particularly excited I decided to post the recipe when they were home from school on Christmas break because it means they get a double dose of Christmas baked eggs this year. They dug in literally seconds after I snapped a few pictures, even though they had just finished breakfast an hour earlier. I suppose the upside to them feeling like they need to eat nonstop is that they are helping keep me in a job.
P.S. If you’re in the market for a runnier egg yolk (we are a house divided on this issue), read the post to get a perfectly baked egg depending on your style.

And. Since so many of you have asked on Instagram, comments and via email, I’m giving a quick rundown of what the food is going to look like around here for the upcoming holidays.
Christmas Eve {Our tradition is an untraditional lasagna feast. Yesssss.}

Classic Italian Lasagna (nothing better than this)

Divine Breadsticks

Amazing Romaine Salad

Creamed Corn (recipe coming soon)

Cranberry Fluff or Raspberry Ribbon Salad or Fruit Soup (decisions, decisions!)

Creme Brûlée for dessert
Christmas Day
{Again, a little untraditional because I don’t believe in spending unnecessary time in the kitchen on this day of all days – plus we’ve never lived around family so our Christmas Day is very, very laid back and quiet.}

Cinnamon Rolls or Overnight Cinnamon Twists or Monkey Bread + Baked Eggs (from this post) for breakfast

Tons of crackers, cheese and fruit for snacking in the afternoon

Sweet Baked Ham (I prepare this completely in advance and heat up Christmas evening) + rolls (again, I choose a favorite roll recipe, make them in advance and freeze them to reheat) for dinner
Day After Christmas
Family Fondue Night (don’t ask me why, but this is kind of an official fondue holiday for us which I think should be an official thing)
New Year’s Eve
Mary’s Egg Rolls

California Rolls

Spinach Artichoke Dip

Queso Blanco Dip

Shrimp Cocktail

Homemade Corn Dogs (by special request from my kids this year)

Lots of vegetables and fruit for snacking
New Year’s Day
Clam Chowder + Broccoli Cheese Soup

Bread Bowls
