Who doesn't love fresh summer herbs? I know we are crazy about them around my house. One of the ways we like to use them are in Ina Garten's baked eggs.
Ingredients for Herbed- Baked Eggs
- 1/2 tsp. minced fresh garlic
- 1/2 tsp. minced fresh thyme leaves
- 1/2 tsp. minced fresh rosemary
- 2 tbsp. minced fresh parsley
- 2 tbsp. freshly grated Parmesan cheese
- 4 extra large eggs
- 3 tbsp. light cream
- 2 tbsp. butter
- salt and pepper
Combine the herbs and cheese set aside. Crack 2 eggs into 2 small bowls without breaking the yolks. You won't be baking them in these bowls.
Place 2 individual gratin dishes on a baking sheet. Place 1 1/2 tbsp. cream and 1 tbsp. butter into gratin dishes. Place under broiler for 3 minutes. Quickly, but carefully pour the eggs into each dish. Sprinkle evenly with the herb mixture, salt and pepper. Place back under the broiler for 5 minutes until whites are almost cooked. There will be herb mixture left over. This recipe is for 4 servings. Just refrigerate the rest for another time. My daughter and I like to add baby spinach to the cream and butter when it comes out of the broiler before the eggs go in.
