These buttery baked eggs made with asiago cheese are so satisfying and only have 1 net carb per serving! Whip these up for an easy, delicious meal any time.
Who says eggs are only for breakfast? They perfect for any time of the day!
I first tried this recipe when I was doing an egg fast. If you haven’t heard of the egg fast, the goal is to eat primarily eggs for 3-5 days. With each egg, you also eat one tablespoon of fat and up to one ounce of cheese.
The egg fast is a great way to jumpstart weight loss. However, you don’t need to be doing an egg fast to enjoy oven baked eggs!
This keto friendly dish is a great way to eat eggs any time. They are super delicious and only have 1 net carb per serving. Plus, prep is so easy and takes less than 5 minutes.
These can be made in ramekins or small oven-safe bowls. Simply butter the dishes, melt the rest of the butter in the bowls, drop a couple eggs in each one, then top with cheese and bake!
How to make baked eggs
With less than 5 minutes to prep and about 15 minutes to bake, this dish can be ready in 20 minutes or less!
First, we’ll prep the baking dishes and melt the butter:
- Use a small amount of the butter to grease the two ramekins or 2-cup baking bowls.
- Split the remaining butter between the two ramekins or bowls.
- Microwave each bowl or ramekin for about 30 seconds to melt the butter.
Next, add the eggs and cheese, then bake:
- Drop two whole eggs into each bowl or ramekin.
- Top each with 1 tablespoon of grated cheese.
Bake in the oven at 350°F for about 15 minutes or until egg whites are set.
That’s it! Once you try making baked eggs in the oven, you may never want to make eggs any other way again.
How to tell when they are done
For me, my eggs are perfect after about 15 minutes in the oven. However, because ovens can vary in temperature, you’ll want to make sure yours are properly done.
The eggs are cooked once the whites are set. The yolks will be soft set, not runny.
The butter will also float to the top as the eggs bake, so you get delicious melted butter in every bite!
I love the taste of Asiago cheese, so that’s what I use. But you can top your eggs with any cheese you like.
1 tablespoon of butter per egg is used in the recipe to comply with the egg fast rules. So if you’re not doing the egg fast, you can reduce the amount of butter used to just enough for greasing
Using the air fryer
I love how easy it is to make baked eggs in the oven. However, you could also use an air fryer for this recipe!
Air fryers tend to take a little less time and don’t need to cook as hot as the oven. For this recipe, I would set your air fryer to 325°F and bake the eggs for 12 minutes.
The cheesy top will turn out extra crispy and delicious!

These are beyond delicious! I did have to bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes, because my eggs were really large. Thank you for the great recipe.
Lisa, I purchased your beautiful cookbook, "5 Ingredient Keto". I love the layout and the recipes. Thank you for including great, color photos. Do you make recipe videos?
I can't wait to try the baked eggs. They look yummy.
Katie, I do have several dozen recipe videos that I'm featured in on my YouTube channel.
I can’t stop eating this! I make a plan for my “lunch” meal every day (I intermittent fast so it’s my first meal) and every day that plan goes right out the window as I open the fridge and reach for the eggs again. I cut the recipe in half, use just a bit less butter, and use 2 Tbsp of fresh grated Parmesan. Pop it into the air fryer and the result is sheer heaven! So fast, so easy, no mess to clean up, and delicious! If I’m especially hungry, I can add a little side salad or a dish of steamed veggies (asparagus or green beans with some browned butter and toasted almonds are my faves with the eggs). I am obsessed - and I’m the girl who has always hated baked eggs! Thanks so much!
I just discovered your page, I'm a newly diagnosed t2 diabetic - when I'm looking at your nutrition information, at the bottom of the information, it says fat and a percentage - is this a percentage of what the whole meal altogether is fat, or is it your daily alloted amount of fat? Thanks!
It's the percentage of calories in the recipe for each macronutrient.
Lisa, this was phenomenal! Thank you for the idea, such a simple way to do lunch yet so filling. The consistency of the yolks were perfect!
I made this in an air fryer. It was excellent! I put half the butter on the bottom, 2 eggs, grated Swiss cheese, topped with Parmesan cheese and put the rest of the butter on top. Came out with a cheesy, crunchy top.
Great idea! I always forget the air fryer can double as an oven for baking.
I just got an air fryer this week - do I use the same temperature and times as a traditional oven for recipes?
Air fryer temperature and times are generally lower. I use a calculator like this one to convert.
I have the same question as Alicia... it says one serving but this is two, right? And how well does the 2nd one do it the fridge for eating later? Is it okay once reheated?
The recipe is for two servings. I eat one and put the other in the refrigerator. It's fine reheated at a lower power. I do about a minute or two at 60% power.
This looks yummy, I can't wait to try it! My question is it says 1 serving, but you have it separated into 2 bowls. Do you eat both or is it 2 servings?
It's actually two servings. 4 eggs is a lot for one person.
I could not believe how high in fat this recipe is!! 67.7 grams!! I am trying a low carb (20 g) & high fat way of eating. This one dish is more than half my needed fats all in one dish! 🙂 Definitely will give it a try! Thank you!
When I did my egg fasts, I made sure I ate a ton of fat to keep me full. And, I always lost weight while egg-fasting.
Trying these for dinner tonight with sharp cheddar. So excited!!
We love eggs for dinner too!
Have you tried making this in a pressure cooker?
I'm still experimenting with the pressure cooker. Haven't made these in it, but I'm sure it would be simple to adapt the recipe.
How have I never seen this before?! Tried it, only change was to use parmesan. I had a shallower dish so I followed your suggestion to pull it out when the egg whites were white and it only took twelve minutes.
One of the best egg dishes I've ever put in my mouth. Seriously. Thank you!!!
I'm so glad you enjoyed these simple baked eggs Faith!
This was sooo good. A little bit like eating butter soup, but if that's wrong, I don't want to be right!
Highly recommend a good quality butter like Kerry gold or Plugras
Thanks for the recipe!!
Nothing wrong with butter! My favorite is Kerry Gold.
What size ramekins do you use? I would imagine that affects cooking time.
Since there's only one egg per cup, I usually use small 4-ounce ones, but 6-ounce work well too. The cooking time isn't too different and it will vary depending on how hard you like the yolk. So check after about ten minutes or so for doneness to your liking.
When you talk about an egg fast do you mean that you only eat eggs or don't eat eggs at all?
On an egg fast, you primarily eat eggs with fat and a bit of cheese. You can add a bit more condiments, but every meal is mostly eggs.
These look so good! Wonder if they'd work in my toaster oven? I like a fairly runny yolk, too. Is that how they turn out?
They should work in the toaster oven, but will likely be done faster. The yolks are soft set, not runny.
