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.
- 1 tablespoon butter, melted
- 2 tablespoons parmesan cheese, freshly grated
- 1 large egg
- 1 tablespoon whipping cream
- Preheat oven to 350°F.
- Butter an individual ramekin, then dust with 1 tablespoon of cheese.
- Break egg into ramekin and cover with cream.
- Sprinkle with remaining cheese.
- Bake 10 to 15 minutes, until white is set.
- Serve hot in ramekin.
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
