Baked Eggs

Delicious. Indeed :)
What could possibly be more beautiful than emerging from the kitchen without a spot of grease yet presenting the smartest looking breakfast ever :) Yep and that would have to be baked eggs. Whether it's for a circus troupe or just for two, it's equally effortless and nutritious to start the day!

Jen says it so well, (baked) eggs aren’t volatile, they won’t get drunk ... or embarrass you in public. Reliable. Special. Delicious.

  • 1 tbs fresh parsley, minced
  • A pinch of  dried thyme
  • A pinch of dried rosemary
  • Black peppercorns
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 strips streaky bacon
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tbs grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 tsp unsalted butter
Serves 2. Adapted from Use Real Butter 

  1. Preheat oven to 190°C. Line 2 gratin dishes (or any ovenproof dish) with unsalted butter and crack 2 eggs in each dish. Set aside
  2. Chopped bacon strips to tiny pieces and fry over a dry non-stick pan on medium heat. Do not add any additional oil as bacon will ooze out it's  natural fats once heated
  3. Pour browned and crispy bacon bits equally in each dish and sprinkle in cheese, garlic and herbs
  4. Finish with a crank of freshly ground black pepper and place both dishes in the oven
  5. For runny yolks, set oven timer to 5 minutes while firmer yolks for 10 minutes. Depending on the depth of the dish, adjust timing accordingly
  6. Serve toast bread and freshly squeezed orange juice to complete the meal :)
Have a wonderful well deserving weekend everyone!
