A very nice and easy variation on shirred (or baked) eggs.

Nice quick way to make breakfast for a crowd. I made two scrambled, used precooked bacon and added a bit of shredded cheddar to them. These were overcooked at 25 minutes in my oven; next time I will cook for 20 minutes, and try with crumbled sausage. Delish...and plates so nicely!
