Recipes

Oven baked eggs

Serves 4

Oven baked eggs

Ingredients

  • 2 tsp butter, softened
  • 2 ripe tomatoes, each sliced into 6
  • Sea salt & freshly ground black pepper
  • 200g Cheddar cheese, grated
  • 8 large eggs
  • 4 tbs cream (or half fat crème fraîche)
  • 1 tsp chopped fresh chives

Method

  • Preheat the oven to 180ºC/350ºF/Gas 4, and preheat grill. Brush four ovenproof ramekins with softened butter, add three slices of tomato into each bowl, overlapping slightly.
  • Sprinkle half the grated cheese evenly over tomatoes. Crack 2 eggs into each and season with salt and pepper.
  • Put ramekins into a deep oven tray and half fill it with hot water (creating a Bain Marie). Transfer to oven and bake for 12 mins the yolks are almost set but slightly runny. Remove from cheese and grill until golden. Sprinkle with chives and serve immediately.
