Breakfast is an often overlooked meal these days. We’re usually too busy rushing out the door with only enough time left to barely make it to Starbucks to order a coffee with more adjectives than a romance novel. Who has time for breakfast anymore? Hell, even if we do have time, how many of us actually put any effort into it?

Should breakfast be fancy? Well, I guess it all depends on what your definition of “fancy” is. To me, it’s something that you would not ordinarily make every day. Something that has premium ingredients. Something that takes a little bit of effort to make. And last, something that not only looks good, but tastes good too.

Well, here’s a very simple, delicious recipe that will wow whoever you’re making it for…including yourself.

Eggs en Cocette – 2 ways!
Servings: 4
Cook Time: 30 Minutes

A delicious and savory assortment of eggs cooked individually in cream in a small ramekin

4 eggs
1 cup heavy cream
1 andouille sausage (finely diced)
½ small potato (finely diced)
salt (to taste)
pepper (to taste)
oregano (to taste)
2 tbsp grapeseed, vegetable, or canola oil
2 tbsp finely diced onion
2 tbsp grated parmesan cheese

Preheat the oven to 400.

Add 1 TBSP of the oil in a pan and heat medium-low until shimmery. Add the diced sausage and cook for about 10 minutes, stirring regularly.

Remove, and add to the bottom of 2 ramekins about 1/4″ or so each ramekin.

Add 1 TBSP of the oil in a pan and heat medium-low until shimmery. Add the diced potato and onion and cook for about 10 minutes, or until cooked.

Remove, and add to the bottom of 2 ramekins about 1/4″ or so each ramekin.

Carefully crack an egg in each ramekin, trying not to break the yolk

Sprinkle a pinch of salt and pepper over each yolk

Carefully pour some cream in the ramekin, over the whites of the egg (avoid the yolk), and fill just to the line of the ramekin (about 1/2″ from the top)

Sprinkle some cheese over the top of each ramekin

Sprinkle some oregano over the top of each ramekin

Place the ramekins on a cookie sheet and place in a preheated 400 degree oven for 10 – 15 minutes, or until the cheese is slightly brown and the cream has slightly risen and is slightly bubbling

Remove, and enjoy.
