French Coddled Egg

The white is just set and the yolk is runny: pure indulgence! Make it even more decadent with thick crème fraîche, crispy bacon or sauteed mushrooms... 

Ingredients For



Preheat the oven to 450°F on the broil setting. Butter 4 ramekins. Separate the eggs, putting one white in each ramekin and setting the yolks aside. Place the ramekins in a large pot and add cold water until it comes up to 3/4 of their height.


Cook the egg whites over low heat until they start to set (about 10 minutes).


Meanwhile, slice the bread into 8 nice strips. Toast them in a fry pan with the butter and olive oil.


Remove the ramekins from the pot. Gentle place one raw yolk on each cooked egg white. Place the ramekins under the oven broiler for 3 minutes. Remove the Baked Eggs from the oven. Garnish each ramekin with a pinch of fleur de sel and a bit of freshly ground pepper. Serve with the crispy toast strips.
