These baked eggs are pretty simple to prepare. Just crack an egg in individual ramekin and seasoned with salt, cream and tiny drop white truffle oil. Since I don’t have truffle oil I replace with grapeseeds oil. According to Nigella you can add other flavour addition like adding chopped ham, diced cooked mushrooms, herbs etc. in the base of ramekin before crack the egg. Sounds pretty great right?

But for today baked eggs I keep it simple and stick with her basic recipe. The baked egg tastes more like Chinese style soft boiled egg but with addition flavour of cream and oil. It is important to watch up the egg and not over bake till cook through. I’m pretty happy to eat it with few slices of toasted bread.

Recipe adapted from Nigella Express cookbook
Baked Eggs
Butter for greasing ramekins
6 eggs (organic preferable)
1½ tablespoons kosher salt
6 tablespoons heavy cream (replace with evaporated milk)
1½ white truffle oil (replace with grapeseed oil)

1. Preheat the oven to 180C and put a full kettle of water on.

2. Dip a pastry brush in a soft stick of butter and grease 6 ramekins of about ½ cup (4oz) capacity each, putting them into an ovenproof pan or dish as you go.

3. Crack an egg into each ramekin, followed by ¼ teaspoon salt, 1 tablespoon of cream and finally ¼ teaspoon of the white truffle oil.

4. Pour boiling water into the pan to come about halfway up on each ramekin. Put in the oven and bake for 15 minutes (mine only 8 minutes). Serve immediately.
