Puddin Place Eggs

Prep time 10 mins
Bake time 25 mins
Yield Makes 6 servings
Put this indulgent dish on your weekend to-do list. Elizabeth Picard, whose aunt owned Puddin Place Bed and Breakfast in Oxford, Mississippi, contributed this recipe to the book.


  • 6 Canadian bacon slices
  • 1 1/2 cups (6 oz.) shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 6 large eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarsely ground pepper
  • 3/4 cup whipping cream
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
  • 3 English muffins, split and toasted (optional)

How to Make It

  1. Place 1 slice each of Canadian bacon on bottom of 6 (6-oz.) lightly greased ramekins or custard cups. Sprinkle 1/4 cup cheese on top of bacon in each ramekin, and push cheese against sides of ramekin, making a well in center of cheese. Break 1 egg into center of each well. Sprinkle evenly with salt and pepper. Pour 2 Tbsp. whipping cream over top of each egg. Sprinkle each evenly with paprika. Place ramekins on a baking sheet.

  2. Bake at 350° for 20 to 25 minutes or until egg is cooked to desired degree of doneness. Serve with toasted English muffin halves, if desired.
