How do you like your Eggs- The Game

I love fresh eggs. I always have 2 Dozen of Eggs in my fridge. I use them for my Creme Caramel, for my omelets, my Fritata, my Quiches.... you name it.

Last time I made Oeufs Cocotte or Bakes Eggs.
Oeuf Cocotte I love this name! It is just an Egg cooked in a ramekin with any ingredients you like. You can also top it with grated cheese. You bake it in the Oven or the Microwave. I like to cook it in a Traditional Oven.
I serve it usually for Dinner but this is can be great for a light lunch with a Salad or Sunday Brunch.

Celine's Oeufs Cocotte
2 servings

- Butter to grease the Ramekins
- 2 tablespoons of Heavy Cream or Creme Fraiche
- 2 Proscuitto Ham slides, cut in tiny pieces
-2 Organic Free Range Eggs
- 1 cup Organic cooked Spinach
- 1 cup grounded Gruyere, Cheddar and Mozarella mix
- Sea Coarse
- Freshly Ground pepper

- Buttered crispy toasted bread

Preheat the oven to 350 F and grease two 6 ramekins with butter. Put your ham, Spinach in the ramekin. Break one egg per ramekin without rupturing the yolks, top with your cheese, salt and pepper.

Place the ramekins in a baking dish and place it in the oven for 15 minutes, depending on how you like your eggs, soft, running or harder.
When ready serve it with crsty buttered toasted bread for dipping.

This is a also a great dish for kids, very complete and healthy too!

Coucou Celine, on ne parle pas assez des oeufs sur la blog, tu as une idée extra. Je vais essayer de jouer, of course. Bises et bonne année!

Hi Celine - my blog is "a half-dozen Eggs" because the first three letters of our last name are e-g-g and between me, my husband and our four children we *are* "a half-dozen Eggs" ;) And my favorite eggs are really very, very simple - scrambled with cream cheese cubed and tossed in at at the very end. Delicious!

Hello Celine,

This egg dish looks heavenly! I can't wait to give it a try - and then have my kids learn to cook it for themselves! What a lovely dish.

I rarely have less than an 18-ct carton of eggs in my fridge, and I usually buy 2 at a time, so I will be happy to participate in your game. Thanks for the invite!

Hi Celine:

This is a great event. I made Birds' Nests or Scotch Eggs. They aren't my favourite eggs but I was curious about them and took the opportunity to make them. I liked them and would make them again.
