Ingredients for Ramekin Eggs with Mushrooms

How to serve Baked Eggs with Mushrooms

Baked eggs are often enjoyed with toast. The toast serves as the perfect vehicle for scooping up the creamy mushroom mixture and egg yolk. No need to be fancy here, just tear off a piece of toast (or a crispy baguette) and dive right in! You can also spoon the mushroom mixture right onto your toast for an extra tasty bite.

And if you are skipping bread altogether, you can also enjoy them straight out of the ramekins with a teaspoon. Or gently slide a knife around the edge of the ramekins and flip them onto a plate for a little extra flair. This is especially nice if you are enjoying the baked eggs with a side salad. This dish pairs wonderfully with a side of fresh arugula salad tossed in a light vinaigrette.

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 2 shallots, finely chopped
  • 1 small garlic clove, minced
  • 400 g mixed mushrooms, stemmed and thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons crème fraîche
  • 2 teaspoons fresh thyme leaves
  • 4 large eggs
  • Parmesan, grated
  • Sea salt & freshly ground black pepper, to taste

To serve:

  • Toast


  1. Preheat oven to 180°C (350°F) and lightly oil or butter 4 small ramekins.
  2. In a large skillet, heat the olive oil and butter over low heat and fry the shallot until softened. Add the mushrooms, increase the heat, and fry until the mushrooms are golden, about 7-8 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in crème fraîche and fresh thyme. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
  3. Divide the mushroom mixture between the 4 ramekin dishes. Make a shallow crater in the surface of the mushroom mixture. Break an egg into the centre of each ramekin. Sprinkle a little parmesan cheese over each egg and season with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
  4. Transfer to the preheated oven and bake until set around edges and still a bit jiggly in centres, about 15 minutes (for firm yolks, bake an additional 3-5 minutes). Remove from oven; let stand a couple minutes to set.
  5. Garnish with extra herbs and serve with toast. Enjoy!
