|COOK|coddled eggs

After introducing our ladies to you, you've probably realised that we eat quite a lot of eggs.  I thought that I'd dedicate a series of posts to egg recipes, some that we use regularly and some new ones that I've been looking to try for a while.

I'll let you into a little secret, the hubs and I have a dream to run a B&B someday (soon hopefully!) and when we have our B&B, coddled eggs will be our signature dish.  Here's how I make it, please do let me know if you try it, it's my absolute favourite breakfast and fast becoming T's.

Serves 1
2 eggs
4 tbsp double cream
Grated cheese (I don't have an exact measurement, just enough to cover the ramekin)
Black pepper

1. Heat oven to 180oC, break the eggs into a ramekin, use a knife to break the yolk if you like your yolks hard, leave if you prefer a little soft in the middle.

2. Pour cream into ramekin.

3. Sprinkle cheese over the top along with ground pepper.  Bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes, until they no longer 'wobble' when you move them!

Serve with a couple of slices of bacon or prosciutto, smoked salmon, wild mushrooms or for a very special occasion a grating of truffle.

Variation - I have tried putting bacon or mushroom in the bottom of the pot before breaking the eggs in, however, we found them too watery and so serve our extras on the side along with a slice of toast.
