Shirred Eggs with Soldiers

Once you go shirred, you’ll never fry an egg again!

“Shirred” eggs are essentially baked eggs with the addition of cream, fresh herbs, and a little cheese. There are endless variations on additional ingredients, and you can modify the recipe with what you have on hand or prefer. The dish is simple to make, but will absolutely wow you with flavor, elegance and texture. The preparation requires a little forethought, and slightly more effort (although hardly!) than turning on the flame for a fried egg. However, the resulting dish is the grand dame of savory breakfasts.
