Sunday morning should be peaceful. I like the quiet, only interrupted by the chirping of a bird outside. The simplicity of shirred eggs matches my mood. Served with chopped herbs and toast points, it’s a no fuss way to prepare eggs. This is an individual serving but can be made for more. Ramekins may also be used.
Preheat the broiler and position the rack 6 inches under the heating element.
Butter a gratin dish with one tbls. butter then add 2 tbls. cream in the dish. Heat under the broiler until the butter and cream begin to bubble, about 2 mins. Add two eggs to the ramekin, salt and pepper, and put under the broiler for 2 more mins. Then turn the over off and leave in the over for 6 more minutes. The eggs should be just glazed over and the yolk runny. Garnish with chopped chives or a mixture of your favorite herbs and serve with toast points.
