Baked Eggs in Cream #SundaySupper

Sometimes, simple is best. Jay is fond of saying “Tis a gift to be simple.” Which, I guess is true. Sometimes the easy, simple dishes taste the best. This week’s Sunday Supper theme is “Eggtastic Recipes,” and I chose the quick, easy, simple meal of Baked Eggs in Cream.

Baked Eggs in Cream

Baked eggs are also known as “shirred” eggs (“shirred” refers to the dish in which they were traditionally baked). The original dish was likely a type of gratin dish, but nowadays, ramekins are mainly used.

The first time I made these, it was one of those evenings where we didn’t have any meat thawed, and we had some tomatoes to use or lose. Jay and I both enjoyed the dish…The bambino was less than impressed.

It’s easy enough to make a meal out of these. Crusty bread and a salad rounds it out nicely. It’s one of those meals that I’m perfectly content with, but I know Jay would prefer to have some sort of meat on the side.
