  • eggs
  • cream


  1. Serves one.
  2. Butter a small ovenproof dish.

  3. Crack two eggs into it. Sprinkle over a little grated gruyère if you like I do like before finishing with a scattering of parsley and a few spoonfuls of cream.

  4. Bake at 190°c (375F) for 12-15 minutes.

  5. The first time I made baked eggs I followed Elizabeth David’s instructions and baked them for 4-5 minutes.

  6. Don’t do this. They will not just be underdone; they will look exactly the same as they did when you cracked them into the dish. Not even warm.

  7. You can of course jazz these eggs up with a little chopped ham, chopped tomato, cooked mushrooms, fried bacon. Tarragon or chives instead of parsley would be delicious.
