This recipe for shirred eggs is a simple and tasty way to start the morning, and it takes very little hands-on time. The eggs are baked in individual ramekins with a little butter, cream, and your choice of cheese.

The directions below are for 1 serving, but the recipe is easily scaled for more servings. For several, arrange the ramekins on a large baking sheet.

Prep Time: 4 minutes
Cook Time: 16 minutes
Total Time: 20 minutes



Heat the oven to 350° F.

  1. Put the melted butter in a ramekin.
  2. Break 2 eggs in the ramekin and top with 2 tablespoons of cream and a sprinkling of salt and freshly ground black pepper.
  3. Bake for about 15 minutes, or until the eggs appear to be set with just a little jiggle. Top with a tablespoon or two of cheese and continue baking just until the cheese has melted.
