"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."
Serving Size: 1 (89 g)
Servings Per Recipe: 1
"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."
"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"
"I am only going to "comment" on this recipe. I LOVE these things, and have eaten them first at a B&B, then when I prepared them for 6....yes SIX people at home. I would like to say that for anyone to heat up an oven(unless it's a toaster oven) to prepare this for any less than SIX people...OK, maybe 4....is about as big a conspicuous display of energy as anything I can imagine. PLEASE, folks. I encourage all to try this delicious dish. But, to do so for "one or two" is WASTEFUL to the nth degree! For your family, or several friends, go for it. Otherwise enjoy it in a hotel, B&B, or restaurant. The recipe is glorious, but not for "one". Enjoy!"
"These came out nice but I should have listened to the recipe and not the other reviewers because fifteen minutes was just right but I left them in the oven for about another four minutes and they set completely making it a very dry dish. I know now the necessary adjustments and will try this at least one more time. I have no idea how someone could cook an egg for thirty minutes at 350 without it burning completely. Anyway my suggestion would be to check it at about 12 minutes and watch it carefully after that. And to take it out just before you think it is done and let it set, the remaining heat will do that for you!"
"This is a quick and easy recipe but I felt the parmesan cheese taste was way too overpowering. Would make this again using cheddar cheese. My DH did not care for these at all and he is not a picky eater."
"What an interesting and diffefrent way to eat eggs. Yum!!!"
"I very much enjoyed the Parmesan Eggs but it received mixed reviews from the rest of the family. Several thought it was a strange flavor for breakfast but thought it was just, O.K. Myself and a friend that I volunteered/recruited both thought it was very tasty however I must admit to modifying the recipe a bit. I used just one half the whipping cream indicated. On my second batch I also added a touch of green onions and a small amount of prosciutto(chopped) before I placed the egg in the ramekin. This version has received rave reviews from everyone."
"This was so good! I loved it! A great and easy way to make an egg! I served it with fresh hot french bread!"
"This is a great recipe for a single or a crowd. It's a little "heavy" on the cream and butter. I reduced the cream by half and quartered the butter and sprinkled liberally with fresh ground pepper. I made 4 ramekins, so the cooking time needed to be increased a bit. Serve with fresh fruit! Uncomplicated and Delicious!"
"Really, really GOOD."
"This is similar but not as good as the parmesan egg/toast in one I had in a B&B in Niagara on the Lake last year. Butter texas muffin tins, roll out bread spread with butter on top and flatten inside tins, add parmesan milk and egg and can add dash of heat if want ...cook for 15min. at 350 and voila! forget the name but they are fantastic. Meal in one!"
"Hello MTDavids, these were wonderful! Made them for a brunch we had here at the "home" and people were wild about them. Followed the instructions just as written and added salt & pepper & parsley or sweet paprika for garnish. We used the foil ramekins for so many people and they couldn't stop raving about them. We are thinking about adding them to our A La Carte Menu at "Cafe Ponce" so they can be sered for lunch or dinner - just a thought right now. Thanks so much for making our brunch so much more enjoyable, Diane :)"
"These were fantastic...I baked mine a little longer 20 min just personal pref for the whites to set....added some garlic powder and yum!!! Thanks so much...Anne"
"These eggs are fabulous! My husband calls them our bed and breakfast eggs because they are so good you could serve them at one. I made as directed except I used fat free half and half in place of the cream. I made them twice this weekend with toasted sourdough bread with raspberry habanero jelly. YUM! Can't wait for next weekend!! UPDATE: 5/3/08 This is my mosted used recipe from Recipezaar! We have them every weekend. Good with a little garlic powder sprinkled on them too. Thanks for making our weekends extra special!"
"Very tasty and very easy to make. It also allows for variations which is nice as well. Thanks for sharing!!"
"Very easy, very good and very fast; what more could you ask. Had this for breakfast with toasted recipe #157517 YUM! Thanks MTD for a winner, sorry the picture is a little blurry - but I still wanted to post."
"I tried this for breakfast this morning and thought it turned out very good. Thanks for sharing this one!"
"I love this dish. Healdsburg is a great place for food and wine and this just reflects that. Thanks."
"SO delicious and simple. We love this!!!"
"This is a wonderful dish, creamy and smooth like an egg pouched in cream. Being Italian I truly believe Parmesan cheese makes anything good. I did add an extra egg and a touch of Kosher salt and fresh cracked pepper and garnished with parsley flakes. I served this up with Toasted Focaccia bread, coffee and for the sweet a slice of Blond Brown toped with mini chocolate chips. As Paula Dean would say, â€œThis is heavenly ya-all!â€�"
