EGGS EN COCOTTE #SoulFoodSaturday

As you all already know, I don't have much time for my domestic duties lately so weekends are absolutely sacred to me, as they allow me to hop over to the kitchen and make myself proper food. I am so so so tried of munching on chips to get me through my day or eating cheap sushi from Family Mart. It's a pretty disgusting diet, and one I am really trying to change now that we have launched and I actually leave the office at 6 and not 930 pm.

So this morning, I decided I wanted to make myself Baked Eggs, or Oeufs en Cocotte. Technically, all you need are eggs and some cream et voila, fancy breakfast! But really, you can add whatever you want to it. I wanted to put bacon originally, but it was frozen, so I dug up whatever I had in the fridge instead and came up with tomato, basil, toasted garlic and feta baked eggs. It's super easy! Here's how:

1 tomato
3 large basil leaves
1 teaspoon toasted garlic
2 large eggs
2 tbs cream
salt and pepper, to taste
2 tbs. crumbled feta
Paprika, for garnish

How to:

Rub an oven-proof ramekin with some butter
Add the tomatoes, basil and garlic
Break two large eggs into the ramekin, keeping them intact.
Add cream
Add salt and pepper
Add feta
Bake for 10-15 minutes on 350 C
Sprinkle with paprika
Enjoy :)
