I love poached eggs and when I’m serving a crowd, it’s easy to do a whole batch in the oven!

These are great served over avocado toast or made into a classic eggs benny or served on their own as an inexpensive and protein-rich way to start the day.

How to Poach Eggs in the Oven

Make poached eggs in the oven the easy no-mess way!

  1. Grease muffin tins and add a bit of water in each (per the recipe below).
  2. Crack one egg into each tin, season.
  3. Bake eggs until the whites are set and the yolk is still a bit jiggly, about 12-15 minutes or to desired doneness.

Check them for doneness! When you remove the eggs from the oven, they may appear to be uncooked. This is likely the water floating on top of the egg white.

To Cook Eggs in a Steam Oven

Tips for Poaching Eggs

  • Set a timer for poaching eggs to be sure they don’t overcook.
  • The whites will continue to cook once they are removed from the oven.
  • Remove the eggs from the pan right away or the heat from the pan will continue to cook the eggs and they can become overcooked.
