Shirred Eggs : Easy and Elegant

READY IN: 17mins
Recipe by Santa Ynez Valley C

The easiest elegant way to dress up eggs for breakfast! This is a simple recipe with a huge payoff. The cream in the bottom gives the eggs a silky texture and although I give two options below, almost anything can be added to them. Great for breakfast in bed!

These are good! I've never done eggs this way before, I was surprised that the cream disappears into the egg itself. I used parmesan cheese with some dried herbs de provence. Very good flavors. I will make this again, thanks for posting. Made for My-3-Chefs event.
