Baked eggs with chorizo and Parmesan

Baked eggs with chorizo and Parmesan

Serves 4

melted butter, for greasing
8 medium eggs
12 thin slices from a small chorizo
8 tbsp cream
a little grated Parmesan cheese

Preheat the oven to 180°C. Brush four decent-sized ramekins with melted butter.

Crack one egg into each ramekin, drop in three slices of chorizo, then crack another egg on top. Season with salt and pepper, then spoon 2 tablespoons of cream on top and sprinkle over a little grated Parmesan. These can be done ahead of time and refrigerated.

Bake in the oven for 12 minutes, until there is just a little jiggle in the middle.

Serve with a grilled wedge of buttered country bread or even better, sourdough.
