Creamy Baked Eggs

Jewelry and brunch. The perfect combination! This past weekend I hosted a jewelry party and tried a few new recipes. All of them turned out great – Creamy Baked Eggs, Cinnamon Sugar Pull-Apart Bread, and Blueberry Scones with Devonshire Cream, Blackberry Butter, and Honey Butter.

The first recipe I’ll share is Creamy Baked Eggs. I’ll share the rest with you later this week! Promise.

Creamy cheesey sauce mixed with eggs and bacon. Tasty by itself or on the side of cinnamon rolls, muffins, scones, or anything sweet. This recipe is a great brunch dish because it can be made the night before.
