Egg in a little pot

This meal will take no more than 2 minutes to prepare and maximum 15 minutes to bake. If your brain isn’t working, all the better, you don’t need it to make Egg in a little pot.  What you do need is a piece of bread, an egg, and some kind of filling stuff such as tomato sauce, ratatouille, goat cheese or even some stir fried vegetables like mushrooms, wilted spinach, roasted tomatoes. Be creative. You will also need a little oven proof ramekin and some garnish like chopped parsley, scallions, lemon zest, grated cheese, cured ham slices etc.

I use ratatouille today. I just fill the first inch of the ramekin with it and then crack the egg right on top, sprinkle some salt and pepper and pop it into an oven that has been preheated to 350 degrees. If you like your eggs runny, leave it in for 10 minutes, if you like them hard, 15 minutes.  As long as the egg whites have turned white you are safe.

I use some sliced scallions, some grated comte (hard cheese similar to gruyere) and lemon zest as garnish and prepare them while my Egg in a pot is baking. The last 5 minutes that the pot is in the oven, I throw some bread in to toast.

Once the whites are white, and your toast is toasty pull it out and enjoy. I like to butter my toast and make little soldiers for dipping. It makes it a bit more fun. Pour a big cup of coffee and read the comics.

all done!
