Brekky Dish – Baked Eggs

Baked Eggs
1 tbsp unsalted butter, softened
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
1/2 tsp fresh rosemary, minced
1/2 tsp fresh thyme, minced
1 tbsp fresh parsley, minced
8 eggs
4 strips Prosciutto or bacon, cooked & crumbled
1/4 cup kale or spinach, sautéed then chopped
salt and pepper to taste
Serves 4 hungry people

Heat oven to 375°F. Butter four ramekins. Combine the cheese and herbs in a small bowl. Crack two eggs into a bowl or cup, taking care not to break the yolks.
Pour the two eggs into a ramekin and repeat until all four ramekins have eggs. Sprinkle procuitto , spinach, & the cheese-herb blend over the eggs. Finish with a dash of salt and freshly ground pepper. Bake the eggs for 10-15 minutes until the eggs have achieved desired doneness: less time for runny yolks, more time for firm yolks. Keep in mind that shallow ramekins will cook faster than deeper ramekins
Serve immediately.

Some old large dead twigs or branches
Fishing line &
Various odd buttons, same or mixed colours
Fill the bucket or old watering can with stones or sand & away you go

A cute illustration

I came across these today they are so french, take a look at the website of Blanca Gomez there are heaps of wonderful scenes you can buy these for around $30.

A gift that gives twice

Ok everyone look at this, I have been seeing these everywhere & Im defiantly using this idea for the next house warming gift, birthday, dinner invite or perhaps a Easter present.
The idea is to layer the dry ingredience for any type of  recipe, cookies would be the best, tip in a bowl & add the wet stuff. So easy & looks so cute
Get the whole directions from the one & only Bakerella
