Simple and wonderful! The cream, cheese and fresh nutmeg really make this something special.

Oh my, this was so good! Served with buttered, toast soldiers to dip into the egg and creamy-cheese mixture.

I liked the eggs very much. I used 747 eggs and I wanted mine to be runny so I cooked them for about 10 minutes. The texture was perfect, loved the gruyere cheese in the dish. I freshly ground my nutmeg, but found it a little over powering. Next time I would omit it. Thanks for sharing another lovely recipe.
