Coddled eggs in ramekins

If you do not have egg coddlers, you can still make a coddled egg by using a ramekin dish instead. It is also nice for hearty eaters as you have room to do two eggs if you prefer.

Coddled eggs in ramekins
for 2 people
Butter two ramekin dishes. Chop a spring onion and place the whites of the onion in the bottom of the dishes. Now sprinkle grated cheese over the onion. Carefully break an egg (or two) into each dish. Add the greens of the spring onion, some more grated cheese, a teaspoon of cream or half and half, and sprinkle with paprika powder.

Bake in a 350F/170C oven for 15 minutes. Serve immediately.

I do not add salt and pepper on top of the egg but you could. I prefer to let people add the salt and pepper to their own taste while eating the coddled egg. 

Bon appetit or eet smakelijk!

I've tried baked eggs, but I always have trouble getting the white done and the yolks soft. I'll have to try your recipe with soy cheese and milk.

those eggs look good-my father would love these. The French have a dish in Burgundy where the cook the eggs in wine sauce. Of course only the French would use wine sauce. Just grab a baguette it is so good.

Were you able to get soft yolks and cooked whites, or would that be with a shorter time? Thanks!

Hi Nina. No email to contact you but I wanted to say that you would have to try baking them a shorter time if you want a runny egg yoke. Just shorten it a couple of minutes and check to see if it works. Thanks for commenting.
