How to make tarragon baked eggs:
A really simple starter which is special for any occasion. Tarragon has an interesting flavour that reminds some people of aniseed. Usually tarragon is associated with chicken dishes but goes equally well with the eggs and cream in this recipe. It is nice if the crusty bread is served hot from the oven and for an extra taste you may like to try garlic bread with this dish.


4 eggs
1 tablespoon finely chopped tarragon
4 tablespoons cream
butter to grease ramekins
(see measure conversions for more information)


- Grease four individual ramekin dishes.
- Mix together the tarragon, cream, salt and pepper.
- Break one egg into each ramekin dish.
- Spoon the tarragon mixture over the eggs.
- Bake at 180 degrees for 6-8 minutes.
- Serve with crusty bread.
