If you're making a lot of these, note that you'll likely need to cook them for a few minutes longer than if you're just baking one or two. Keep an eye on the yolks so they don't get overdone. Note that you'll need individual, 4-ounce ramekins for making these - they're inexpensive and here is one good place to buy them.
Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 15 minutes
Servings 4 people
- butter for greasing ramekins
- 4 tablespoons half and half or heavy cream
- 4 eggs
- 1/2 ounce Gruyere cheese shredded , 4 large pinches
- salt and freshly ground black pepper
- 4 teaspoons minced fresh chives
Preheat oven to 375°F
Grease the inside of 4, 4-ounce ramekins with butter. Add one tablespoon of heavy cream into the bottom of each ramekin. Top the cream with one egg and a large pinch of cheese. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper and sprinkle with chives.
Bake 8 to 12 minutes until the yolk reaches your desired consistency (I recommend removing them while the top is still a bit wobbly). Serve.
