We all have a day off here as it is Ascension Thursday so I thought I'd start the day with a nice breakfast. This recipe is one which I recommend you all try. It is so beautifully simple and so delicious. Certainly one to serve when you're out to impress.
It's a very easy thing to make:
Preheat oven to 220C. Take a ramequin and grease it with a little olive oil. Add a layer of finely chopped veggies (I used spring onions and cherry tomatoes), follow with a little bit of cream cheese or creme fraiche (in my case, some peppery cream cheese), break in an egg, top with some s/p and some herbs (I used oregano). Put the ramequins in a tray and fill that with boiling water, about half way up the ramequins. Pop in a warmed oven for 10-15 minutes and serve with some cheese and some more spices. I finished it off with some parmesan, a tiny sprinkling of sweet paprika powder and a little finely chopped parsley.
Serve with some pain de campagne and you have a gorgeous breakfast!
The beauty of the dish is that you can add just about anything, different veggies, cheeses, etc. I got this recipe from Chocolate and Zucchini.
