I love sharing recipes that you can cook for one, since that’s what I am normally doing! Obviously you can cook any of these recipes for more than one person. One of my favorite things to make is baked eggs. At home I have mini cast iron pans that I love making baked eggs in and they are just perfect for a single serving.
I always include herbs, depending on what’s growing and what I have on hand. For the ones I made today, I used chives. But I love using sage, thyme, or oregano. I often include proscuttio or sauteed greens too.
I have so much fun experimenting with this recipe. I often toss arugula or fresh greens on top with creme fraiche or with my favorite hot sauce, Secret Aardvark! I am constantly changing it up! Thanks to my sister Lizzy for teaching me how to make these eggs.
2 Tablespooons cream
A little butter
Fresh ground pepper
Shallots or onions and/or garlic
Toss a little butter into a pan and let it melt. Put in cream and crack an egg. Add herbs, proscuiotto, onions, and whatever else you like. Cook in the oven on 350 for around 10-15 minutes. Top with greens and creme fraiche if you like. Eat with bread! Yum!

I love your photography and your natural and realistic settings. So many pictures on blogs are beautiful, but so overly styled and contrived it gets tiresome. Same thing for magazines. I enjoy your uniqueness and creativity.
when you said “cook on 350”, do you mention cooktop of oven?
Mmmm yummy! Must try with the cream. Thanks for the inspiration.
Hi A French Girl- yes, in the oven! Sorry if that was confusing! Thanks guys! Really glad you like the story and let me know if you make baked eggs!
Thank you Frolic, for your lovely blog. I stumbled upon it today and I fell in love. Thank you for sharing your honest and beautiful photos 🙂
so simple, but so good….thanks
I’ve done these too, excellent with my own fresh eggs. My recipe calls for broiling the cream/butter for 3 minutes, in the mini baking pan. Then broil for 7 minutes, or til yolk is soft, fast and easy! White ceramic baking dishes are what I got….
