Fancy Baked Eggs?

Carole's Chatter: Fancy Baked Eggs?


For a little brunch treat I gussied up some baked eggs.  The eggs turned out just fine although the pancetta on top was a bit on the chewy side.

I lined some ramekins with baking paper (a whole lot easier than buttering them).  Crack an egg into each one.  Add a little cream and parmesan cheese and pepper (I used cayenne for a bit of a kick).  Put in a moderate oven for about 20 minutes – or until your desired amount of doneness is reached.

While the eggs are cooking chop up a little pancetta (or bacon) and fry it until crisp.  Add to the top of the finished eggs once they have been taken out of the ramekins and paper.  If I had had some nice fresh herbs, a tiny bit on top would have been a nice garnish.

  1. I like that idea of using parchment instead of butter. And your eggs turned out great!

  4. I always forget you can cook eggs in ramekins. I have done it for a hot Salad Nicoise, adding the eggs to cook that way.
    But then I forget about ramekins the rest of the time.
    Mmmmmm..... Pancetta'

  5. That does sound good, except for heating up the kitchen with the oven. We've had such a hot summer.
