However, my loves, I strongly advise you to GO EXTRA!

Suggestions for Serving the Baked Scrambled Eggs
Scrambled eggs are a classic breakfast dish because of their nutritious values. However, if they are healthy and common, they shouldn’t be boring! Making baked eggs in the oven is certainly a little extra, but do not settle for little! Now that the oven takes care of your omelet, you have the time to prepare other dishes to go with it.
These are some that we have already tried and loved!
- Bacon or sausages;
- Pancakes, waffles, or crepes;
- Fruits or macaroni salad;
- Hash browns;
- Muffins or donuts;
- Yogurt and granola.
Moreover, my favorite way to serve omelet or baked scrambled eggs is with a lot of parsley. I love parsley on my omelet not only for the refreshing summerish flavor but also for the aspect! Just take a look at the next photo and tell me, isn’t that beautiful!?
How to Reheat Scrambled Eggs
Remember that reheating scrambled eggs can cause them to dry out and make them a little tougher. However, if you don’t like them cold, you can reheat your leftover scrambled eggs. Just place the leftovers in a microwave-safe dish and cook in ten-second increments until they are warmed through.
If you don’t have a microwave, count on your oven one more time! Just use the heating mode, and 5 minutes will be enough to reheat the baked scrambled eggs.
Moreover, please keep in mind that you should reheat and eat your leftover eggs within 2-3 days. If they stay more than three days in the fridge, they can go bad. We would certainly want to avoid this scenario!
Last but not least, when you store them in the fridge, place them in an airtight container to keep them from absorbing smells.
Enjoy Your Breakfast!
