INDIVIDUAL HERBED BAKED EGGS
Serves 1 person
Gardyn Exclusive Recipe curated by Chef Katie McCall
1 small clove garlic, minced
1 tablespoon mixed fresh herbs, minced (we used parsley, rosemary and thyme)
1 tablespoon bread crumbs
1 tablespoon freshly grated Parmesan cheese
1 tablespoon cream
1 tablespoon butter
Freshly ground black pepper
Toasted bread, for serving
Preheat the broiler for at least 5 minutes and place the oven rack about 6 inches below the heat.
In a small bowl, combine the garlic, mixed herbs, bread crumbs and cheese. Set aside.
Place the cream and butter inside a small, oven-safe ramekin or gratin dish, and place under the broiler to heat; 2-3 minutes or until bubbly.
Carefully remove from the oven and gently crack two eggs into the dish; sprinkle with desired amount of the herb mixture and salt and pepper.
Gently, place the dish back under the broiler for 5 minutes (give or take, depending on the depth of the dish used). Keep an eye on the eggs, turning once if browning too much on one side. Cook just until the whites of the egg set. Remove from oven and serve with toasted bread.
Any extra herb mixture can be stored in the refrigerator up to 1 week and used on other dishes for an extra punch of flavor.
