Shirred Eggs

Yield 4 servings


  • 6 eggs
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper, ground
  • 1 package Jimmy Dean Maple Roll Sausage, cooked, crumbled, drained
  • 1 tablespoon fresh basil, chopped
  • 3 teaspoons garlic, minced
  • 3/4 cup tomato, 1/4 dice
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 4 tablespoons fresh chives, chopped

How to Make It

  1. Preheat oven to 325° F. In a bowl, mix the eggs and heavy cream very well. Also mix in the salt and pepper. In a separate bowl mix, together the maple sausage, basil, garlic and tomato. Use butter to grease the inside of the individual-serving baking dishes the eggs will be baked in. Divide the egg mixture and the sausage mixture between each individual-serving baking dish. Set baking dishes in a pan of water to bake. Bake in oven for 10 minutes. When the eggs are cooked, remove from oven and sprinkle chives over top.
