Individual Baked Eggs

Serves: 1

Hands On Time: 

Total Time: 


1/2 tablespoon unsalted butter
2 tablespoons heavy cream
2 large eggs
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
2 teaspoons finely chopped fresh chives
Toast, for serving


Heat the oven to 375 degrees.

Use the butter to grease the inside of a 4-inch cast iron skillet. Pour the cream into the skillet, then crack the eggs on top. Lightly season the eggs with salt and pepper, then top with the cheese and chives.

For slighlty runny yolks, bake for 8 minutes. For firmer yolks, bake for an additional 3 to 5 minutes. Serve immediately with toast.

About the recipe

This is a perfect use for individual 4-inch cast iron skillets, or any other small individual baking vessel. Though they are poured in separately, the eggs and cream bake together to form an almost custard-like finished dish.
