Oven Scrambled Eggs

Making breakfast for a large crowd is tiring! We usually only have a full house a couple times a year and it’s mainly around the holidays. Instead of slaving over the stove making multiple batches of scrambled eggs, I can get them done in one shot when I prepare them in the oven.

The result is deliciously creamy scrambled eggs cooked to perfection. They also are piping hot! I despise eating cold eggs.

You can prepare the white sauce the night before and store in the fridge. In the morning, put it in the microwave to get it to room temperature. This recipe is the way to go when preparing scrambled eggs for a crowd! It’s the only way I make them when we have company over.

Ingredients
  • 18 eggs
  • 3 tbsp butter
  • 3 tbsp flour
  • ¾ tsp salt
  • 1½ cups table cream
  • salt & pepper, to taste
Instructions
  1. In a saucepan on the stove, melt 3 tbsp butter over medium heat. Add in the flour and salt and stir constantly for 3 minutes. Gradually add in cream while whisking. Whisk constantly till sauce comes to a boil and is thick. Remove from heat and cover in plastic wrap. Place in freezer to bring the mixture to room temperature (about 8 to 10 minutes).
  2. Preheat oven to 400°F. Whisk eggs in a large bowl and in cooled cream mixture. Whisk together.
  3. Pour egg mixture into a greased baking pan. Cook uncovered for 10 minutes and then stir the mixture with a spatula. Cook another 5 minutes and then stir again. Repeat the process until eggs are cooked and reach the desired firmness. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

    I’ll have to pass this on to my mother. She usually cooks up a few batches of eggs when we (and the rest of my siblings) head over for a weekend or holiday.

    I’ve done omelettes in the oven and love them, never thought of doing scrambled eggs, I guess it would be pretty much the same, just you don’t stir the omelette, thanks for sharing!!

    I like creative and useful cooking tips. I have made scrambled eggs in the microwave for convenience several times but this idea would be great for a big group. You could also add cheese or bacon pieces.

      It’s in between half and half and heavy cream at about 16-18% milk fat. If you can’t find it, use either one of those you mentioned. It should still work fine!
