Baked Eggs with Crème Fraîche & Fresh Herbs

These oeufs en cocotte boast a wonderful balance between the rich crème fraîche and the bright parsley and chives.

Ingredients:
8 large eggs
1 cup Farm & Larder crème fraîche
Pinch nutmeg
3 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
3 tablespoons snipped fresh chives
Sea salt and fresh ground pepper

Method:
1. Preheat the oven to 350°.

2. Season the crème fraîche with salt, freshly ground pepper and a pinch of nutmeg.

3. Place a heaped tablespoon of crème fraîche in the bottom of a small individual ramekin or custard cup*, followed by a sprinkling of parsley and chives. Crack an egg on top, add a second tablespoon of crème fraîche and sprinkle with an additional pinch each of salt, pepper and nutmeg. Repeat with remaining ramekins.

4. Place the ramekins in a baking dish and pour enough lukewarm water into the dish to come halfway up the sides of the ramekins.

5. Bake for 15 minutes or until the egg yolks are set to your liking. Finish each serving with additional chopped herbs.

*This dish can also be made in a large baking dish, or even in a few smaller baking dishes. Spread a thin layer of cheese and herbs on bottom, carefully crack eggs and space out evenly, then dollop additional cheese and add water as directed above.
