baked herbed eggs breakfast herbaceous victoria gourmet recipe

On weekend mornings there is nothing better than a hot breakfast. This recipe is herbaceous, has loads of flavor and texture, and is ready in less than 20 minutes! I like to use individual gratin dishes for this recipe. You can use any low individual oven-safe dish. 


8 slices pancetta or bacon
8 tablespoons heavy cream
4 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 teaspoon garlic, minced
8 large eggs
8 tablespoons parmesan cheese, grated
4 slices bread, toasted
