Creamy baked eggs

Please tell me you love eggs.

2

Please do.

2

Tell me you think they’re beautiful.

Tell me you can’t live without them.

Tell me you eat at least 2 on a regular day.

2

Tell me you don’t think I’m a crazy person, whose love for eggs is scaring you a little bit 🙂

I think my crazy love for eggs started when I looked at this.
(I do look a bit crazy. Maybe the photographer had an egg.)

2

It’s my mother’s fault. Eggs were the first solid food I ate.

And every time I eat an egg now, I travel back to the comforting warmth of my childhood.

2

Now usually I buy regular eggs. I have no idea where the chicken that laid the eggs was raised or how. Most people I know eat these eggs and have no problems, and they’ve always been good enough for me.

2

Then I discovered Keggs.

2

Keggs eggs.

2

These are “near-organic” eggs.
I really don’t know what that means. It says so on the box.

2

But I’m guessing it has something to do with the way these chickens were raised.

2

Good food + sunshine + open air = happy chicken = yummy eggs

Bad food + dirty cage = sad chicken = not so yummy eggs

2

(That’s all the math I’m doing for a year)

2

These eggs have tan shells and bright, yellow yolks.

2

They taste better too.

MUCH better.

2

I think it makes sense to use Keggs when you are eating the egg as the egg. So fried, poached, baked, scrambled…

2

However for baking a cake, or mixing into something else, I think regular eggs do just fine.

2

Today let’s do something decadent. One bite of this rich, creamy goodness and you will be in egg heaven. Yes you will 🙂

Ingredients:

2

butter for greasing

2 eggs

salt and pepper to taste

4 tbsp full cream

4 tbsp grated cheese

2 slices buttered brown bread

minced garlic

2

Method:

  1. Preheat the oven to 180º C. Grease a small ovenproof bowl with butter.
  2. Crack an egg into it and season with salt and pepper. Add 2 tbsp cream over the egg, and sprinkle with 2 tbsp grated cheese.
  3. Over this, crack another egg and season again. Add the rest of the cream and cheese the same way.
  4. Bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes, depending on how runny you like your yolk. I like mine a bit runny.
  5. Cut each slice of bread into 3 pieces and top with some garlic. Toast in the oven and use to dip in your baked eggs.

NOTE: You could try this with one egg if you aren’t as ravenous as me 🙂

  1. I can’t live without eggs! No matter what is served, breakfast without eggs ain’t breakfast at all!

  2. I came across these eggs in my supermarket here in Bombay; perfect for making fresh tasting lemon tarts. The ones I found had a nice orangy thick yolk, which contributed to a nice rich shade of lemony yellow for the tarts.

    Ok I just saw you use pretty much the same recipe I use for lemon tarts (one I came across in one of them Jamie Oliver shows). I guess you must have already tried them out then.

  3. YUM! I love eggs! And I definitely agree about where the eggs come from. We’ve had hens since I was a little girl, and I LOVED the eggs they would lay. The flavor is so much mor rich, and the color of the yoke more vibrant! Store-bought, regular-old-eggs are not so yummy…just kinda bleh. It’s like the difference between fresh fruit off the vine and fruit picked too early in the store!

  4. hi! thank you so much for the lovely comment you left on my blog. it made me feel better. 🙂 i’m glad you dropped by and I got to discover your blog! i love eggs!haha but eating 2 eggs a day is kinda scary. 😛 is there such a thing as egg overdose? but I am definitely going to try the baked egg! I just have to buy butter first as we ran out already. by the way, i made pizza today and after seeing your blog, I think I’m going to post the pictures of today’s cooking experience and blog about it. 😀 i also added a new blogroll on my page for food blogs and i linked you (and your link list too!).

    1. I’m sure there is such a thing as egg overdose 🙂
      But I guess it’s okay once in a while!
      Looking forward to your pizza post!
      Thanks for the add…I’ve added you to my list too!
      Hope you’re feeling better now 🙂
