    This was so good! Since I did't have any fresh herbs on hand, I used a mix of dried herbs which included chives, dill weed, basil, French tarragon, chervil, and white pepper. Thanks for a great recipe, Marie, I will definatly make this again!

    This recipe was scaled down to serve DH and me. I cooked them in individual ramekins and added a touch more cheese than called for. The mixed herbs were dried Herbs de Provence. As for the double cream, I used low-fat milk to which I added dry milk powder for extra richness. Thanks for a wonderful brunch!

    Delicious and easy. I too scaled it down--2 eggs in a nice-sized ramekin--and had to shorten the time considerably. Used fresh basil and cracked pepper and loved it!

    We liked this easy recipe. Maybe next time, I’ll add some fried onions or mushrooms. I found that baking this for 20 minutes made the yolks solid. Next time, I’ll watch for the cheese to melt and pull it out sooner, so that we might be able to have the yolks runny. Thanks.
