… one by one he devoured them, to me unexpectedly, wonderfully… and so did I, because they were too scrumptious!

I’m talking about these eggs I decided to bake with my first take of homemade puffed pastry based on Gordon Ramsay’s Rough-puff pastry. (http://www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/2403/roughpuff-pastry-). I bet he won’t swear on me (maybe not that much) if he could get to try this recipe. And I am talking about my husband who finally gained confidence to try my cooking suggestion. He wanted scrambled egg in a sandwich, but I was so focused with my puffed pastry I convinced him will just bake the egg in it. And here it goes:

Materials you need:
6 small Ramekins or muffin tin/silicon cup

Ingredients

   
Prepared puffed pastry (get it from your grocery isle or make it yourself the Gordon Ramsay way)
6  
large eggs, lightly beaten
1⁄2 c
grated cheddar cheese
2 T
milk
   
salt and paper to taste
   
sliced spring onion, to garnish (optional)
   
hot sauce, optional

Instructions

Preheat over to 190 degree C.

Lightly beat together eggs and milk. Season with salt and pepper to taste

Cut a layer of pastry to fit in the bottom of ramekin, and place in bottom of ramekin. You don’t need your pastry to be perfectly set in the bottom, but make sure it all touched the sides of ramekin by gently pushing it in.

Sprinkle each bottom of prepared ramekin with cheddar cheese, then carefully pour in egg mixture up to level of ramekin’s mouth.

Bake up to 30 minutes, or until the pastry begins to turn light brown.

At this point, egg will balloon or rise up on top of ramekin's mouth, almost forming into a ball.

Serve garnished with green onion and with your favorite hot chili sauce!
