This recipe, like Chicken a la King, has been served for generations on Christmas in our family! (We have a lot of traditions!) We only have them on Christmas morning–and they are a VERY special treat!! Eggs cooked like this are AMAZINGLY wonderful! Mmmm–my boys actually ask for them at every holiday. They argue that we could call them Halloween/ Valentines (etc) eggs. Unlike Chicken a la King which is strictly only served on Christmas Eve, I have crumbled and made them maybe once or twice on other very special occasions–but, they are first and foremost Christmas Eggs.
- 12 eggs
- 1 pint whipping cream
- Salt -I use kosher
- Butter a muffin tin (or skip this step if you have one of my favorite Demarle muffin pans and they will not stick at all!)
- Crack one egg in each muffin hole. Then open your carton of cream and pour maybe a couple of tablespoons on each one. Keep pouring and try to give each egg an equal amount until the cream carton is empty. Sprinkle a pinch of kosher salt on each one and then simply pop into the preheated oven. Bake for about 12-15 minutes, depending on how soft you like the yolk. Mmmm-spoon out the eggs and be sure to spoon the cream over each one!!
