      I cooked this in ramekins which worked well. I wasn't quite sure what to expect. The eggs baked to a barely softboiled egg consistency. Ie if you like fully cooked eggwhite, this is not for you. I do so it was not a problem. Good if you feel like boiled eggs but you are not sure how fresh your eggs are and really need to break them open to be doubly sure.
