CREAMY BAKED EGGS

Ever since we have been on the lo carb lifestyle, I have struggled with breakfast.  I simply love things like cereal and toast, and it’s hard to give them up.  But with this totally no carb egg dish, I serve myself 1/2 slice of crispy toast (8 grams of carbs).  Dr. Mike says I’m allowed 80 per day, and try to spread them out 20/20/20/20.  So that’s what I do!

If you are on Instagram, please follow me:  askmehowiknowcb.  I do one minute videos and today I vlogged this recipe.  I saw it on the Kitchen.  The chef brought the basic idea of serving a brunch where people could make their own concoction of favorites on their egg.  He started with a small pyrex bowl and broke an egg into it. (spray the dish with cooking spray).   On a board, he set out about 10 things you might want to put into yours:  chopped ham, cooked crumbled bacon, cheese, asparagus, olives, chilies, mushrooms, scallions.  I chose chopped ham and shredded cheddar for mine.

Break an egg into an oven proof bowl.  Add your favorite condiments and pour about 2 Tbs. of heavy cream around it.  In a larger pan, pour some boiling water and set the egg dish in it.  NOTE:  It is easier to place the pan in the oven FIRST before putting the egg dish in the hot water.  Otherwise, you might get burned……ask me how I know…..

I love this cream from Trader Joe’s, cause you can keep it on the shelf for months, (until you open it, then refrigerate).  NOTE:  If you want it to make nice whipped cream, chill it first.  It doesn’t whip well when it’s warm….ask me how I know!

Bake at 375 for about 18 minutes   On the Kitchen he said 12-14 but that didn’t work for me.  I like my white cooked and my yolk a little runny.  So for me, 18 was perfect for ONE egg.  ANOTHER NOTE:  When I did the 60 second video on Instagram, I made a larger dish with 3 eggs so my hubby could share.  I learned that it will take several minutes longer with this larger batch.  So, after I took it out of the oven and discovered that it was too runny for me, I simply divided it for us, and put my dish in the microwave for one minute to cook it.  Hubby doesn’t mind his eggs runny, so his was fine.  But my point here is this:  If I were to do this again for both of us, I wouldn’t do them together.  I would do smaller, one egg dishes and the results would be more uniform.

I hope you try this.  It is one of my favorite all time discoveries!  Wouldn’t it be a fun brunch?  Set up an “Egg Bar” and everybody does their own combo.  Maybe some Mimosa’s with it?  Wowsers!
