Well, I would love to tell you how great they were but my husband ate them before I could try them! Granted, I only made 2 , but they looked great and the herb mixture was wonderful. They took longer to cook than the recipe stated – but what a terrific, simple dish to whip up.
Bethany, I think anything Pyrex should be fine. I know some people have planned on using ramekins too. I’m planning on using my oven-safe rimmed soup bowls. I’ll let you know how that works out tomorrow.
Megan, glad to hear the eggs went over so well!! 🙂
Mine were really good! The only thing I might have done differently would have been to cook the eggs that extra minute (I only did 5) and they were pretty runny (but warm) inside. I made two eggs in a small ramakin.
I used some soup crocks (think french onion soup) and they turned out great – until we dipped the spoon in… they sooo weren’t cooked! I popped them back in for another 5 min to cook the whites, but that also cooked the yolks. (This may be partly my own fault for using the toaster oven broiler instead of the real oven) 🙂 All things considered- they are VERY yummy!
Ina doesn’t specify a degree on the broiler, so I set mine to 325 and cooked them WAY longer than she called for… close to 15 minutes. Maybe I should have upped the heat? Anyway, I used a sm. gratin dish and a sm. round corningware dish (appx. 5″) and they turned out fine… a tad runny because of the butter and cream, but still yummy! The herbs gave the eggs a fantastic taste! Can’t wait to see how everyone else’s came out! 🙂
I ended up using my muffin pan and cooking a few individually! They were so yummy. I didn’t have all of the herbs, but I figured it was ok since it’s a trial run. Mine were a bit runny as well, but still great. Will definitely make them again! 🙂
I made mine this morning. I used my Le Creuset “Petite Au Gratins” which can go under the broiler. They are fairly small though so two eggs in each were plenty. Mine were cooked but a bit runny from the cream so I agree with Elizabeth and would probably leave out the cream next time. But oh the herb mix…..YUM!!!!
I made mine in a couple of Emile Henry ramekins. I put 2 eggs in each and left them under the broiler for 6 minutes…perfect for us since they were completely cooked…yolks too, but probably not how they’re supposed to be.
I made mine in Emile Henry ramekins. I put two eggs in each and they were perfect. I broiled for 6 minutes (after the 3 minutes for the butter and cream) and the whites and yolks were cooked probably more than they should be…but perfect for us.
I made mine for dinner this evening and they were delicious! I used a small ceramic ramekin with two eggs. They baked for about 9 minutes in my toaster oven and were perfectly done for me. One yolk was a little firmer than the other. Overall the eggs was the right amount of runny for me.
I made mine at lunch today (2 eggs in a little ramekin). I started at 380 but they weren’t done after 8 minutes so I upped to 400 for two more minutes. HUGE caveat – I do not like runny eggs at all. So only follow this if you are looking for a solid mass. The herb mix – delish!
I used an individual sized gratin dish which was just the right size for 3 eggs. The herb mixture was delicious, but the eggs were still kind of runny after 6 minutes – that’s OK, we ate around the runny part. Great recipe choice. 🙂
I used my creme brulee dishes and actually measured 6 inches from the broiler–and got my eggs too cooked. Luckily everyone in my crowd BUT me likes the hard cooked version. I made these for a brunch this morning, too–I melted the butter with the cream ahead of time, cracked the eggs into the dishes (I only used two; three seems overkill), topped them with the herb/parm mixture and popped them into the oven when my friends arrived. It was SO easy to have this done ahead of time.
But this is a def. keeper of a recipe. My friend already asked for the recipe so she could do it for a brunch.
I’m playing catch up here and just tried it out. I had no problem with using 10 inch porcelain ramekins. I think this would make a great, easy, breakfast once winter comes but for dinner on a nearly 100 degree day. . .not so much. I did enjoy the flavors a lot once I put the eggs back in the oven and firmed them up a bit more. I just can’t do the runny eggs thing.
