Impressive dish for something that was quick and easy to make! I used 2 thin slices of black forest ham per cup - it gave the tops a nice "ruffled" look. Subbed green onion for the chives and diced grape tomatoes for cherry. Sprinkled with S&P - heavy on the pepper and and Parmesan cheese. Very tasty! I baked the full 18 minutes and let rest 5. I made 8 and only one of the yolks was soft with a little run to it. Will cook just a little less next time because we like the yolk a little runny. Thanks for sharing, this one is a keeper!

My family didn't like these as much as I thought they would. I baked for the suggested 18 minutes, and the yolks were very firm, so it tasted like a hard boiled egg. I don't know why I was expecting something more along the lines of soft-boiled or poached. I might try these again and cook for a shorter time, since my family really likes soft yolks.

These are a great idea & easy to whip up.. only thing is a little on the bland side. Added a tablespoon of wholegrain mustard, & will add extra herbs or something next time. Would definitely make again though! Thanks for posting!
