Shirred Eggs

Baked eggs with a touch of butter & cream- it's simple and fabulous!! This is another one our favorite egg dishes. You can change it up by adding some fresh herbs &/ or cheese on the top too. It is perfect for breakfast, brunch or a cozy dinner! Ingredients:
Eggs, 3 per serving
Butter, 1/2 tbsp per serving
Heavy Cream, 1 tbsp per serving
Salt & Pepper
Preheat your oven to 450 degrees.Place 1/2 tbsp of butter & 1 tbsp of heavy cream in the bottom of each dish. (You want to use individual gratin or ramekins for this.) Place the dishes on a sheet pan & into the preheated oven, just until the butter is melted & the cream is warmed (about 2 minutes).
Crack 2-3 (large/extra large) eggs into a separate dish. I used a 2 cup measuring cup that had a pour spout on it. (You can make smaller portions if you wish- just use smaller ramekins & adjust the butter & cream.) Gently pour the eggs into the individual dishes. Sprinkle with salt & pepper (to taste). Repeat per serving.
Bake at 450 degrees for about 8 minutes, just until the white has begun to set & brown but the yolk is still soft. Pull out of the oven (the eggs will continue to cook & set.)
Serve immediately. I made this on one of our 'Breakfast for dinner' evenings with my Basic Roasted Red Potatoes & Bacon as sides. We also like to make it with Toast Points or some kind of crusty bread, that you can dip in the egg yolks. YUM!!
