These baked eggs are so delicious and fun to eat. They’re baked with cheese, cream, and anything else you want to add for extra flavor. Then, you mix the yolk, whites, and cream all together and scoop the deliciousness to your mouth. It’s a good way to start the day! Even Stella was begging for a nibble (but that’s not too surprising these days).
To make your own delicious breakfast, preheat your oven to 425°F. Then, crack 1 egg into a smallish ramekin or bowl and add in 1 tablespoon of cream, 1 tablespoon of shredded gruyère cheese, a minced clove of garlic, some chopped herbs (I used sage), salt, and pepper. Don’t mix it! Of course, feel free to multiply these ingredients and add them to a larger baking dish to make more servings.
The most difficult part about making these eggs (besides eating more than you should) is figuring out how long to bake them. I think 10 minutes would have been ideal for my 3 inch ramekin, but I overdid it by a few minutes and my yolk hardened. Don’t worry, it was still so delicious! Add or subtract baking time depending on how shallow your eggs sit in their baking vessel (the more your eggs can spread, the less time they will need). Cook your eggs until the yolks have reached their desired doneness. Then, mix the egg together with a piece of toast and enjoy every last bite of it. Simple ingredients can really make huge flavors!
