How to Cook an Egg in a Toaster Oven

It may be the last thing you would consider using to cook an egg, but toaster ovens are more versatile than they seem. Useful for more than toasting bread, toasters can be used to make simple, innovative breakfasts. Baked eggs take little more effort than scrambled eggs, yet add an elegant touch to the first meal of the day. They can be cooked in anything from a ramekin to a hollowed-out roll, potato or tomato, and can be baked with a variety of meats, vegetables and herbs.
