Serves: 2
  • 2 tsp butter
  • 4 eggs
  • salt and pepper
  • 1½ tsp chopped fresh chives
  • 2 tbsp heavy cream
  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Position oven rack in the middle of the oven. Butter two 6-inch gratin dishes.
  2. Break two eggs into each gratin dish. Season with salt and pepper, sprinkle chives on top. Drizzle 1 tbsp of cream into each dish, starting with the egg yolks and working outward.
  3. Bake until the eggs are bubbly and browned on the edges but not quite set, about 5 minutes. Turn the broiler on, leaving the eggs on the center rack, and broil for another two minutes.
  4. Remove eggs from the oven; they will continue to set. Serve immediately.
Bake eggs an additional minute if you like firmer eggs.
