Baked Eggs

I think one of the best things about a day off of work is having an unhurried  breakfast. Here’s a quick dish that you can make for yourself (and tastes fancy enough to serve to friends.) It’s reminiscent of the flavors in a dish that I used to get at Toulouse Petit, a fantastic breakfast place. Someday I’ll work on recreating that meal, but for now here’s the lazy version.

Baked Eggs

For 1 or more-

Butter a ramekin. Dice a small piece of ham and scatter it in the bottom of the ramekin. Crack your egg in. (Don’t scramble or stir.) Sprinkle Parmesan or other spunky, grated cheese over the top. Add salt and pepper. Drizzle on about 1 tbls. of cream. Bake your egg at 325F for 10-12 minutes. 

-If you’re baking an egg just for yourself, skip the post-breakfast scrubbing by using a muffin paper in the ramekin. (Don’t butter it, just crack your egg right in the paper.)
-Friends coming for brunch? Bake your eggs in a muffin tin.
-Make this recipe your own by adding herbs, leaving out the meat, or experimenting in any other way.
