Shirred Eggs (Oeufs en Cocotte)
Andy Anderson !
They are deceptively easy to make… Not much more than frying the egg in a pan. But once you try this, you may never pan fry an egg again.
Serve this with thin slices of toast, and you have the perfect savory breakfast. Serve this with a side salad, and you have a wonderful light evening meal.
I picked this dish up at Cordon Bleu many years ago; where they are called “oeufs en cocotte”.
So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.
2 tspsweet butter, salted
2 Tbspcream, full fat
