oeuf en cocotte recipe
someone asked in the egg post about an easy oeuf en cocotte recipe. there is a french canadian lady on foodtv canada and she was going on and on about how easy and perfect this recipe is.
* 2 teaspoons crumbled blue cheese or smoked fish, or a few truffle shavings or leaves of tarragon
* 2 x eggs
* 2 teaspoons crème fraîche
* salt and pepper
* 2 pinches chipped chives
1. Heat the oven to 375FºF/190ºC. Into the bottom of each of two buttered ramekins put a spoonful of one of your favourite flavours like blue cheese etc. (see suggestions above). Gently crack an egg in on top. Top with a spoonful of crème fraîche. Season with salt and pepper. Sprinkle over the chives.
2. Set the ramekins in a baking dish and pour hot water in the dish to come half-way up the sides of the ramekins. Bake until cooked, but still jiggling, 5 to 7 minutes. Serve with buttered toast fingers for dipping.
