I do mine in a small toaster oven with a convection setting. While the pans are preheating, scramble the eggs. Carefully remove pans from oven and give them a quick shot of cooking spray. Divide eggs equally between the pans and return to the oven.



Allow the eggs to bake 10 to 12 minutes, until the centers are firm, and reach a safe temperature of 165 degrees. Remove from oven and allow to cool a few minutes. You should see the eggs start to pull away from the sides of the pan. Carefully remove them from the pans, they should pop right out.



Slice some prebaked biscuits, or English muffins, and add the eggs to the bottoms. We usually have a pack of m…
