Simple, easy to prepare, different, and good. From the Belle de Jour Inn in Healdsburg, CA. We like this with toasted Italian bread for breakfast.

We liked these, but they were no where near done in 15 minutes. They went 30 minutes, at least. Instead of butter, I sprayed the ramekin with oil and cut the Parmesan in half. I put dried minced onions on mine and they turned out really good. As another reviewer stated, 2 T of cheese would be way too much. 1 T was plenty.

I usually cook for 2, but since I needed to turn on the oven, I went ahead to make 6 of these eggs. Did everything according to the recipe. Sprinkled with a dash of dried parsley before baking. They came out fabulous!! I warmed up leftover eggs in my microwave, the eggs were a little over cooked because of that but still tasted great!

Slightly similar to a recipe I got from a B & B. They lined muffin cups with shaved black forest ham, then cracked in an egg, topped with 1 Tbsp whipping cream,sprinkle parmesan and S & P. Served on toasted english muffin and sprinkle of fresh parsley! Same baking instructions as these eggs- Don't overcook, they continue to cook after they come out of the oven. Extremely yummy and so easy for when guest are over! Sorry Deep, but I would most definately make these for two as nice special breakkie or brunch
