Baked Eggs with Mushrooms

I always love the idea of going away for a weekend.

Even though I live close to the beach and technically every weekend could feel like a mini-getaway, they usually don’t.

(When you’re in your own environment, there is always more work to be done, especially if you work from home. There’s always a load of laundry that I could throw in, a few quick dishes I could wash up, or a blog post or two that I could get a jump start on.)

Sometimes a change of scenery is the only thing that works when you want to take a little break.

That’s why the idea of going away holds such appeal. Staying at a romantic bed and breakfast in the country, or at a chic boutique hotel with all the amenities in the city. No matter where the change of scenery is, a full breakfast spread – made by someone other than me, lol – is something I always look forward to.

A while ago, I saw a recipe for Baked Eggs with Mushrooms and Parmesan on Kalyn’s Kitchen. I have been dying to make this dish since I first saw Kalyn’s lovely recipe, and I was excited to put my own spin on it.

In this recipe, earthy mushrooms pair perfectly with Emmental cheese, and a few simple flavorings like salt, pepper, garlic, and thyme compliment the dish nicely.

This is the sort of brunch that makes a weekend morning at home feel like you’re on vacation!

How to Make Baked Eggs with Mushrooms and Cheese

Cook the mushrooms down in a little butter along with herbs, spices, and garlic.

Put the cooked mushrooms into an oven-safe gratin dish and sprinkle the cheese on top.

Make two wells in the cheese and crack an egg into each well.

Bake until the eggs are cooked to your preference. I find that about 10 to 12 minutes at 400F yields cooked egg whites and runny egg yolks.

Garnish with fresh parsley (or any herbs you like) and dive in!

Baked Eggs with Mushrooms and Cheese FAQs

Do I Need to Cook the Mushrooms for This Recipe Beforehand?

Yes! Mushrooms hold quite a bit of water, which needs to cook off before baking the mushrooms together with the eggs.

How Can You Tell If Baked Eggs Are Done?

The whites should be set, but the yolk should still have some give to it when you press it.

I find that for eggs over medium (i.e., set whites and runny yolks), cooking for about 10 to 12 minutes at 400F works well.

How Many Baked Eggs is One Serving?

Typically, two baked eggs is a good serving size.

  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 100 g shiitake mushrooms wiped clean and coarsely chopped (about 1 1/2 to 2 cups)
  • 1/16 teaspoon salt
  • 1/16 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 large clove garlic crushed
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme leaves or 3/4 teaspoon minced fresh thyme leaves
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons heavy whipping cream
  • 40 g Emmental cheese shredded (about 1/3 cup; or any type of Swiss cheese you like)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons minced fresh parsley leaves for garnish


  • Preheat oven to 400F.
  • Add the butter to a medium skillet over medium heat. Once the butter is melted, add the mushrooms, salt, and black pepper. Cook until softened, but not browned, about 6 to 8 minutes. Add the garlic and thyme and cook 2 minutes more, stirring constantly.
  • Pour the mushrooms into a small oven-safe gratin dish, add the cream, and sprinkle the cheese on top. Make 2 wells and crack the eggs into them.
  • Bake until the cheese is melted and the eggs are cooked how you like them (I like mine with set whites and runny yolks, which takes about 10 to 12 minutes).
  • Sprinkle the parsley on top and serve immediately.

  1. Hi Faith,

    The Cheesy Mushroom Baked Eggs for Two looks scrumptious. Another thing I like is the white, round gratin dish that it’s served in. Can you tell me who the manufacturer is and where I can get it?

    I wish you continued inspired cooking!


    1. Hi Nora, Thanks so much for your kind words! Unfortunately, I no longer have that dish (it broke!), so I’m afraid I don’t know. Sorry about that!

  2. This looks fantastic, I love occasionally treating my family to a big breakfast on the weekends, and this looks tasty!

    1. Gina, Nope, like the recipe says, it’s 400F for this recipe (see Instruction #1 above). Hope you enjoy this recipe if you give it a try!

  3. It’s so true…if we’re home, we are probably doing chores or working in some way! I love the idea of taking time to relax with a delicious breakfast like this!

  4. Maureen | Orgasmic Chef says:

    You’re so right about getting away. I do the same thing. Laundry needs doing, the pool needs cleaning, I should pressure wash the front walkway… you name it and I think I should do it.

    These baked eggs look so good. I always want to go away for the weekend and have someone else make them for me.

  5. The perfect “lazy day” breakfast. All of our children are grown, so we love to have leisurely breakfasts on Saturday mornings. Those eggs look inviting!:)

  6. I adore this recipe, I am so into eggs lately, can’t get enough!!

  7. This is my kind of breakfast. Simple and scrumptious. And I agree, even without kids a weekend away where someone waits on you hand and foot feels worlds different than being at home, even it’s just the two of you on the weekend.

  8. since im always cooking, cleaning, and planning its soo nice when someone else makes food for once. This is a great idea for brunch even better if someone will make for me.

    Mushrooms and baked eggs?! LOVE!

  10. hambrick91 says:

    This looks yummy! Just curious…you have cream listed in your ingredients, but I don’t see where it goes in the recipe process. Did I miss it?

    1. hambrick91, That was my mistake, sorry about that! (And thanks for catching it!) I fixed the recipe above – the cream is in Instruction #2. Hope you enjoy the recipe if you give it a try! :)

  11. Christina says:

    This looks fab. My husband doesn’t like mushrooms but I would totally make this just for me.

  12. That looks delicious! A great brunch dish and tasty combination.
