Roasting and baking eggs was an important method of early cookery when people prepared foods over open flames. Even though it’s not as popular today, the technique still turns out a delicious meal. Today, roasted eggs are usually referred to as shirred eggs. Most often they are prepared as a savory breakfast, but when you’re in the mood for something sweeter, try roasted eggs with a morning classic: orange juice. This recipe makes a breakfast for 1.  

Roasted Eggs
Ingredients:
 

1 tsp butter 

2 farm-fresh eggs 

Juice and zest of 1 orange 

1 tbsp cream 

Pinch of salt 

Pinch of sugar 


Instructions:
 

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Butter a small ramekin, and crack the eggs into it. Whisk the orange juice, zest, 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 orange juice mixture and bake for another couple of minutes to maintain a runny yolk, or about 5 more minutes for fully cooked eggs.
