Detail of Caramel Apple-Almond Crepes



Caramel Apple-Almond Crepes


A great dish for dessert or breakfast, these filled crepes are quick and easy to make, full of wonderful flavor, and make any occasion special.


Herbed Parmesan Baked Eggs

This easy and elegant dish is quick and easy to make. I like baking eggs in the oven as it allows you to run off and do other things, while cooking eggs on the stove oftentimes requires some attention. Baking the eggs also allows you to add additional flavor and ingredients which is hard to do on the stove. This recipe combines crispy baked parmesan cheese with fresh herbs for a delicious and elegant breakfast dish. A pinch of your favorite dried herbs added before baking or fresh parsley added after can be used instead of the mixture listed below. The ingredients listed below are for one serving, the recipe can be doubled or multiplied as many times as you need.

1 tablespoon butter
2 tablespoons freshly grated Parmesan cheese
1 teaspoon minced fresh thyme
2 eggs
Salt
Freshly ground white pepper
dash freshly grated nutmeg
1 tablespoon snipped fresh chives or chervil

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Heavily grease a small individual casserole dish or ramekin (flatter is better) with half the butter. Sprinkle the Parmesan cheese in the dish, tilting the dish to coat the buttered sides with the Parmesan. Repeat with the thyme. Carefully break the eggs into the dish. Sprinkle with salt, pepper, nutmeg. Dot with the remaining butter. Bake for 12-18 minutes, or until the eggs are cooked the way you like them. Top with the snipped chives or chervil and serve immediately.

Makes 1 serving.
