Course: Breakfast
Cuisine: French
Servings: 2 people



  • 4 eggs
  • 2 tbsp of butter
  • 2 tsp of milk
  • 2 oven safe large ramekins or similar
  • 1 clove of garlic minced
  • 1/4 cup of freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tsp of dried thyme you can use fresh too
  • 1 tsp of dried basil you can use fresh too
  • pinch of slat and fresh ground pepper
  • Crostini Bread


  • Preheat your broiler.
  • Place ramekins on a baking sheet and place under broiler for a few minutes while you prepare your eggs.
  • In each ramekin, place 1 tbsp of butter and 1 tsp of milk.
  • Place under broiler for 3-4 minutes until nice and hot.
  • While ramekins are under broiler, grate your cheese, measure out your spices and mince your garlic and add them all to a bowl and mix together.
  • Now take the ramekins out of the oven and crack 2 eggs into each ramekin (1 if you prefer- see notes below).
  • After the eggs are in the ramekins, sprinkle 1/2 of the herb and cheese mixture over top of each ramekin and place back under the broiler for another 4-5 minutes or until the eggs are set and bubbly but the yolk is still runny.
  • Serve with some Oregano Crostini bread (recipe above) for dipping or regular baguette.
  • Enjoy!!!


This recipe is for 2 eggs in each ramekin. If you would like to use only 1 egg that is fine, just reduce the cooking time by about 1/2 or until the eggs are done to your likeness.
