Coming up with creative ways to cook dinner on a budget isn’t always easy, but I find that as long as I have enough eggs on hand, dinner is a breeze. Eggs are such an affordable source of protein, and they cook up so simply, that they’ve quickly become one of my favorite weeknight dinner ingredients. And baked eggs? They are the best! So easy to make —— just slide them in the oven and they’re ready in fifteen minutes or less. (I wish all dinners could be so simple.)

And while classic baked eggs are really fantastic, there are also a host of ways to jazz up the basic recipe, pairing them with bread, vegetables, bacon, and more. Head below for 19 creative baked egg recipes, and get ready to enjoy night after night of easy, delicious family dinners!
