Herbed Baked Eggs

I mean….

…is this for real?

I am not sure I have had a breakfast quite so flavorful….EVER. I’m not kidding. This is on another level of mouth-watering-even-after-it’s-gone-ness.

My house….my freaking house still smells like it. This dish managed to cover up the smell of…..2 dogs. I will leave it at that. This recipe is just too good to ruin it with my talk of watery buttholes and mystery poopie cheerio stamps on my pillow.


Anyhow, it’s FRIDAY!!!! What does this mean?? It means you get your little tushes to the grocery store and get everything necessary to make this for a wonnnnnderful Saturday / Sunday brunch.

Prepare. For. Deliciousness.


Shredded parmesan, tossed with minced parsley, rosemary, thyme and garlic


A good ol’ chunk of butter in a good ol’ pool of heavy cream in a lil ramekin I’ve been dying to use for a year now.


…butter and cream bubbling and browning in the broiler. B b b b bbbbbbbb.


Add the eggs, herbs, and salt and pepper…bake for 5 or 6 minutes…


Oh baby.  Take it out and stare at it. Resist temptation to poke. This sucker is piping hot.


Toss a couple pieces of lightly (or heavily, who cares) buttered bread of your choice into the oven while the eggs sit…do not take your little eyes off of it!



A fewwww things: I overcooked it a smidge. If you like a hard yolk, 6 mins is the way to go. I did 6, plus it cooks in the sitting time. Will do just under 5 mins next time I think. And feel free to be sliiiightly heavy handed with the herbs, garlic, and cheese. I used a bitttt more than stated in the recipe and it was to die for. Also, it looked so freaking good that I didn’t even want to take the time to blow on my bite-filled spoon before shoving it into my face. The roof of my mouth is out of commission for a bit. Be careful out there kids!!

xx (and quick note: I cannot thank you guys enough for the 200+ responses of sweet, sweet advice and awesomeness on the post below. I read EVERY word. I laughed, I cried (bawled, sometimes), and realized so many of us are in the same situation in life…all trying to figure things out. Twitter is nice to be snarky on, certainly. But this is my heart here, and I am so happy to have people like you in my little food blog community. Truly. Thank you thank you)
