French Eggs - Oeufs en Cocotte

Oeufs en Cocotte

Ingredients

  • 4 eggs
  • 15g butter, melted
  • 6 tablespoons cream (whipping)
  • 4 mushrooms, sliced
  • 40g sliced ham
  • 40g grated gruyere cheese
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped herbs (e.g. chervil, parsley or chives)

Method

Preheat the oven to 200°C and put a baking tray on the top shelf. Grease four ramekins with butter. Pour 3 tablespoons of cream into the ramekins and then divide mushrooms, ham and cheese among the four ramekins. Break an egg into each ramekin. Mix 3 tablespoons of cream with finely chopped herbs and pour over the top. Bake on the hot baking tray for 15–20 minutes, depending on how runny you like your eggs. Remove from the oven while still a little runny as the eggs will continue to cook. Season well and serve immediately with crusty toasted bread.
