Low-Carb Living ~ Caprese Baked Eggs

Thursday, July 12, 2012
Happy Friday the Thirteenth! When I spied this recipe on Pinterest, I KNEW I would be trying it, loving it and blogging it! Thank you to Jessica from How Sweet It Is who's recipe this is. If you are a low-carber like me, be careful of her blog -- LOTS of delicious looking Food Porn there, lol.

I halved this recipe and served it with a salad for supper -- very filling and I will be making it again soon. I used fresh mozzarella pearls (YUM) and basil from my herb garden.

Caprese Baked Egg Cups
(Printable Version)

8 eggs
1 pint grape tomatoes, halved
3-4 ounces mozzarella cheese, chopped
8-10 fresh basil leaves
2 teaspoons cream
salt and pepper, to taste
softened butter

Preheat oven to 350°F. Butter 4 2x3-1/2-inch ramekins. In each ramekin place few pieces of tomato, cheese and basil. Crack two eggs into each and season with salt and pepper, then add 1/2 teaspoon of cream to each egg to prevent them from drying Add a few tomatoes, cheese and basil on top and set on a baking sheet. Bake for 5-8 minutes, then turn on the broiler and bake for about 5 minutes more Watch carefully to determine how runny/firm you want your yolks. Makes 4 servings.

    Looks amazing! I'm on a high protein, low carb diet myself, so this will fit right in. xo

  1. Gail, thanks for your kind words about my upcoming move. This is a great low-carb recipe. I try to do low-carb about twice a week. Joni
