Peter Rabbit’s Baked Eggs Recipe
Rich in omega-3 oils and calcium, eggs baked with cheese in muffin tins end up the perfect shape to serve on a crumpet or bagel. A light supper or a nourishing brunch, this charming dish is the perfect nursery food: comforting, simple to make, and nutritious.
We can picture Mrs. Rabbit making Baked Eggs for supper for Flopsy, Mopsy, Cottontail, and Peter. We hope your little bunnies enjoy it, too!
