Baked Eggs En Cocotte


Baked Eggs En Cocotte

I recently came across a recipe for this casserole baked egg dish and I'm so glad I did. I don't usually eat eggs, but when I do, I usually like them poached with toast and butter. This recipe is now at the top of my favorites list.


  • Salt / pepper to taste
  • 2 strips of bacon, cooked and chopped
  • Splashes of cream can be replaced with milk
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/4 cup grated Gruy√®re cheese that you can substitute for any hard cheese
  • 2 sprigs of thyme for garnish
  • Non-stick spray


First, preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit

Then, spray non-stick spray in 2 ovenproof ramekins, fill the bottom with pieces of cooked bacon and cheese

Break 2 eggs into each ramekin, making sure not to break the yolk

Garnish each dish with a hint of cream, salt and pepper

Cook the ramekins in a larger saucepan filled with 1 inch of boiling water

Bake 12 to 15 minutes for the runny yolks

-18 minutes for soft yolks

-20 minutes for hard yolks

Garnish with thyme springs and serve immediately
