Directions for: Cocotte Eggs


tsp crumbled blue cheese or smoked fish, or a few truffle shavings or leaves of tarragon

2 eggs

tsp crème fraîche

salt and pepper

2 pinches chipped chives


1. Heat the oven to 375FºF/190ºC. Into the bottom of each of two buttered ramekins put a spoonful of one of your favourite flavours like blue cheese etc. (see suggestions above). Gently crack an egg in on top. Top with a spoonful of crème fraîche. Season with salt and pepper. Sprinkle over the chives.

2. Set the ramekins in a baking dish and pour hot water in the dish to come half-way up the sides of the ramekins. Bake until cooked, but still jiggling, 5 to 7 minutes. Serve with buttered toast fingers for dipping.
