A 1653 edition of The French Cook includes a recipe entitled “Eggs in the Moon Shine With Cream,” which is an early version of what are known today as shirred eggs. Most often today shirred, or roasted, eggs are prepared with cream, but they're even better with coffee and cream. This recipe makes a breakfast for 1. 

Roasted EggsIngredients: 

2 farm-fresh eggs  

1 tbsp brewed coffee 

1 tbsp cream 

Pinch of salt 

Generous pinch of sugar 


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Butter a small ramekin, and crack the eggs into it. Whisk the coffee, cream, salt and sugar together. Bake the egg for about 8 minutes or until the white is just beginning to set. Then pour in the coffee mixture and bake for another couple of minutes to maintain a runny yolk, or about 5 more minutes for fully cooked eggs.
