Baked Eggs 
If you are looking for an excellent light supper, lunch or even brunch dish, look no further than these Baked Eggs. You could also have them for breakfast.  They are really simple, uncomplicated and delicious!
Baked Eggs 
They are as simple as buttering a dish and cracking a couple of eggs into it.  A smallish dish for each, so that the eggs cook perfectly . . .  with set whites and golden runny yolks . . .
Baked Eggs 
A mix of hard cheese, cream and mustard is sprinkled over top . . .  before baking. You can also add chopped cooked bacon if you wish, or a bed of spinach for the bottom, or leave the cheese/cream out altogether and just add a few slices of chorizo . . . or some buttered crumbs . . .  they are very forgiving and adaptable.

I butter bread, cut it into soldiers and bake along side . . .  for dipping into those beautiful runny golden yolks . . .
Baked Eggs 
They are also a really quick bake. Ten minutes.  That's all, which makes them perfect for a week-night supper when you get in from work, all tired and wasted, and just can't be asked to do anything complicated.
Baked Eggs 
They look gourmet.  They taste gourmet.  They are a total Doddle.

I added a smattering of snipped chives today  . . .  for show.  It does add a bit of flavor also, but its really not necessary if you don't want to.

See?  Perfectly cooked  . . .  with each dip bringing you a bit of golden yolk, runny cheese, and a scrap of bacon  . . . just gorgeous.
