Good Morning Baked Eggs

I always love cooking breakfast foods. It seems like such a luxury to have a carefully planned breakfast, hot and tasty, rather than a bite of toast or cold cereal eaten in the dark. I have the morning off, thanks to honours. Although to be honest it isn’t really off, I’m meant to be writing stuff up… but I’ll hopefully get some done tonight/this arvo. This morning, I’m dedicating myself to eggs. For a while I had something against eggs. Too squishy I thought to myself. However, now I adore cooking with them- so versatile! I bought these little ramikans from an op shop and since then I’ve been working out what I can cook in them. There’s an amazing recipe for redwine and beef pie with a potato pastry top that I can’t wait to try. But this morning, it’s baked eggs. Recipe by moi, devised based on what was in my house, although as I shopped yesterday, there was actually a selection!
