Baked Eggs with Morels

Makes 4 Servings
wine WINE PAIRING
Alsatian Riesling or Gewurztraminer, or a German Riesling

Scrambled, fried, poached….is there anything else? Yes – baked. Baked eggs are fluffy with a smooth texture. They’re also easier than you think. These eggs get their pizzazz from wild morels and lots of fresh thyme.

You could substitute reconstituted dried morels for this recipe, but they won’t be as tender.

Baked Eggs with Morels
INGREDIENTS

DIRECTIONS

1

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.
2

Saute the morels in butter & oil (Butter Sautéed Morels Recipe) until nicely browned.
3

Butter four 6oz ramekins.

4

Add just enough heavy cream to each ramekin to coat the bottom (approximately a tsp in each).
5

Top the cream with a sprinkle of thyme and a sprinkle of salt.

6

Add four or more morels to each dish (enough to layer the bottom).
7

Add two whole eggs to each ramekin, taking care not to break the yolks.

8

Add another sprinkle of salt, another of thyme and another tsp of cream to each ramekin.
9

Bake for about 12 minutes, until the tops have browned, the outside of the eggs have set, but the middle of the top still jiggles when shaken. They will continue to cook the rest of the way after leaving the oven.
