Valentine’s Breakfast Treat – Baked Eggs with Smoked Salmon

Treat your loved one to a Valentine’s breakfast treat this weekend.

Easy to prepare and delicious served with a toasted muffin, add a splash of Tabasco for a kick. If you want to make this into more of a brunch recipe, the addition of some wilted spinach and/or sautéed sliced mushrooms at the bottom of the dishes are delicious.

INGREDIENTS

2-4 slices ham or smoked salmon

2 eggs

2 tbsp cream

2 tsp chopped chives (optional)

1 tbsp finely grated parmesan

Toasted and buttered English muffins or toast

 

METHOD

Pre-heat the oven to 220C/425F/gas 7.

Grease two individual small ovenproof dishes such as ramekins with butter. If you don’t have any dishes, a deep muffin tin with do. Place in the ham or smoked salmon, pushing it down into the edges to create a bowl shape. Break an egg into each one, then pour over the cream.

Season with salt and pepper, scatter over the chives (if using) and finish with the cheese. Place in the oven for 12 minutes, until the egg white is only just set and the yolk is still runny. It will continue to cook once removed from the oven so don’t be tempted to leave them in the oven too long if you still want a runny yolk.

Remove from the oven and serve either in the dishes or turned out, with toasted buttered muffins or toast.

PS…

If you want to swap the smoked salmon for ham, it doesn’t matter what type however Parma ham is particularly delicious.
