    5 people made this

    Serves: 2 

    • olive oil, for greasing
    • 80g ham, finely diced
    • 30g grated cheese (Comté or Gruyère)
    • 80 to 100ml cream
    • 2 eggs
    • salt and pepper, to taste
    • 2 pinches chopped fresh chives

    Prep:5min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:20min 

    1. Preheat the oven to 190 C / Gas 5. Boil water in a kettle.
    2. Grease a mini lidded casserole dish with olive oil. Distribute the diced ham over the bottom, then sprinkle with 1 tablespoon grated cheese. Pour the cream on top and add a small amount of pepper.
    3. Crack the eggs into the casserole dish one at a time. Make sure the egg yolks remain intact. Here is a little trick: Crack the egg into a glass or a cup first, then gently slide them in. Sprinkle with the remaining cheese and some chopped fresh chives. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
    4. Cover the casserole dish and place it in a roasting tin. Pour in enough boiling water so it reaches about halfway up the casserole dish.
    5. Bake in the preheated oven for 9 minutes with the lid on, then remove the lid and cook for an additional 3 to 6 minutes, until the egg whites are just set but the yolks are still runny. Depending on the oven the total cooking time is 12 to 15 minutes. Serve hot with toast or strips of bread to dip in the egg yolks.

    Made this, quite pleased but a bit salty. I will be a bit more selective next time with the ham I use. That said easy to make and very moreish.  -  11 Mar 2016


    These eggs are excellent. They make up for a meal. Just toast a few pieces of bread and you got a hearty meal for the cold months. I however will have to fine tune my cooking times since my yolks came out overdone. I made this using my toaster oven so it is different from my big oven. Overall, I will make this again. This is restaurant quality and simplicity all in one.  -  29 Mar 2018  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I thought this was delicious! I cooked a little too long and the yolk wasn't runny. Next time I would shorten the time after removing the lid.  -  22 Mar 2018  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
