A great dish for dessert or breakfast, these filled crepes are quick and easy to make, full of wonderful flavor, and make any occasion special.

Herbed Parmesan Baked Eggs

This easy and elegant dish is quick and easy to make. I like baking eggs in the oven as it allows you to run off an do other things, while cooking eggs on the stove oftentimes requires some attention. Baking the eggs also allows you to add additional flavor and ingredients, which is hard to do on the stove. This recipe combines crispy baked Parmesan cheese with fresh herbs for a delicious and elegant breakfast dish. A pinch of your favorite dried herbs added before baking or fresh parsley added after can be used instead of the mixture listed below.

1 tablespoon butter
2 tablespoons freshly grated Parmesan cheese
1 teaspoon minced fresh thyme
2 eggs
Pinch salt
Dash freshly ground white pepper
Dash freshly grated nutmeg
1 tablespoon snipped chives or chervil

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Heavily grease small individual casserole dishes or ramekins (flatter is better) with half of the butter. Sprinkle a tablespoon of Parmesan cheese in each dish, tilting the dish to coat the buttered sides with the parmesan. Repeat with the thyme. Break one egg into each dish. Sprinkle with salt, pepper, and nutmeg. Dot with the remaining butter. Bake for 12-18 minutes, or until the eggs are cooked the way you like them. Top with the snipped chives or chervil and serve immediately.

Makes 2 servings.
