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. 

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.
