"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."

    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!

    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 only cooked for (1) which I don't find wasteful, and it doesn't take to much time or energy to cook whether it is feeding (1) or (6) I remember as a young girl my father used to make these on occasion, I have tried in the past to recreate but no matter what I did I cannot get the exact taste that I was so delighted to taste when he would give me my first bite after he took them out of the oven. I learned from my father to add or delete what appeals to my taste buds and seldom did he, or I measure anything. Iin other words food always taste amazing, but very seldom does a recipe taste the same, (always excellent ) never the same This recipe was very good, it does continue to cook after it is taken out of the oven so next time I will not cook over 13 minutes.

    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 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!
