|Ready to bake!|
The first time I tried these eggs at my friend Amani's home I was BLOWN away. The cream was so decadent and speckled with flavor from the herbs and garlic. The eggs were baked perfectly, and the buttery crunch from the flaky croissant I used to scoop all the sauce was pure perfection. It was an amazing meal.
-1 cup heavy whipping cream
-1 teaspoon lemon zest
-1 clove garlic, minced (can substitute dried)
-1 1/2 teaspoons salt
-1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
-1 tablespoon dried parsley (fresh is even better!)
-1 tablespoon dried chives (or use fresh green tips of green onions)
-8 large eggs
-sprinkle of salt
-1/3 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
*croissants or fresh bread for serving
-Preheat oven to 400 degrees farenheit
-In a 9 inch baking dish, mix together the cream, lemon zest, garlic, salt, black pepper, parsley and chives. ---Carefully crack the eggs into the baking dish, one at a time, leaving a gap of cream between them. ---Sprinkle the tops of the eggs with a little extra salt and Parmesan cheese.
-Bake on middle rack for 15-25 minutes, depending on how set you want the eggs. A quick tip to help cook the eggs is to set the oven to broil after 15 minutes. Watch it carefully so the egg yolks don't harden too much and the cheese doesn't burn.
-Serve with croissants or fresh bread.
