While shirred eggs traditionally cook with a splash of heavy cream, we’ve lightened this version—and made the flavor even bolder—by enriching the egg with a little extra-virgin olive oil and tangy feta cheese. The process is delightfully simple: Just crack the eggs into the oiled mini cocotte, add the toppings, and bake until set.
How to Make It
Preheat oven to 375°F.
Place bread cubes on a sheet pan; bake at 375°F for 13 minutes or until browned and crisp.
Rub 1/2 teaspoon oil into each of 4 (8-ounce) mini cocottes or ramekins to coat inside. Divide bread cubes among cocottes. Crack one egg into each cocotte. Season each egg with 1/8 teaspoon salt and a dash of pepper. Spoon 1 tablespoon marinara into each. Sprinkle each with 1 teaspoon feta. Place cocottes in oven; bake at 375°F for 12 minutes or until whites are set. Sprinkle with oregano. Drizzle with additional oil, if desired.
