Introduction

Quick and easy breakfast that is tasty, filling, and low carb. It's great for a crowd, too, as it's just as easy to make a dozen as it is to make one. If making more than one, placing ramekins on a sheet pan is helpful. Quick and easy breakfast that is tasty, filling, and low carb.

Ingredients

    1/2 tbsp unsalted butter
    2 large eggs
    2 tbsp heavy whipping cream
    dash of salt
    dash of paprika for color

Directions

Turn oven on to 375 F. Put butter in a oven safe ramekin and place in oven to melt. Once melted, remove from oven and add eggs and cream, then sprinkle with salt and paprika. Place back in oven and bake for 13-15 minutes. Set your timer and simply walk away!

Due to the cream, the egg will still look "jiggly" when you remove it from the oven. Egg yolks should be soft and egg whites should be firm. Due to varying oven temperatures, it may take a try or two to get your own timing down pat.

Though I'm posting this recipe with the low carb folks in mind, this recipe can be modified for any number of dietary needs, including lower fat diets.

Add whatever additional items you like. Tomato, basil and Parmesan are wonderful. Sausage, sage, and ginger is another great option! This recipe is calculated only for the ingredients listed in the above ingredient list - no additional items.

Makes 1 serving.
