Meatless Fridays: Century Chili Corned Tuna Oeufs En Cocotte

Mabuhay!

Here's a Mother's Day recipe you can serve mom for Sunday brunch. Like my other recipes, this dish is easy to make, delicious, and special!

Eggs rule my breakfast. One of my favorite egg dishes is oeufs en cocotte which means "eggs baked in ramekins." A ramekin is a small glazed ceramic or glass serving bowl used for the preparation and serving of various food dishes.

Here's a variation the classic baked eggs in cream:

Century Chili Corned Tuna Oeufs En Cocotte


Ingredients:

Himalayan Pink salt
White pepper

1can of Century Chili Corned Tuna, drained; 2 eggs; spring onions; 4 tbsp. of half and half (2 tbsp cream, 2tbsp. milk)
For individual servings, use a ramekin. If you don't have one you can make a big batch by tripling the recipe and putting it in a cake pan or any oven-proof baking dish.
Easy peasy:

Step 1: Preheat oven to 325° F.
Step 2: Pack in the Century Corned Tuna in the ramekin.
Step 3: Crack the two eggs on top of the corned tuna.
Step 4: Pour the half and half over the eggs.
Step 5: Season it with salt and pepper and garnish with spring onions.
Tip: Pour the half and half on the egg whites avoiding covering the yolk.
Step 6: Bake in preheated oven approximately 10 to 12 minutes, depending on how you want your eggs cook. When done, the whites of the eggs should be completely set and the yolks beginning to thicken but not hard.
Tip: Place the ramekin/s on a baking tray for easy handling.
Step 7: Serve with a smile!:D
Warning: Be careful not to burn your fingers with the hot ramekin.
Surprise mom with this simple, easy, but mouthwatering goodness on her special day!
Personally, I like toasted bread with it.
Creamy goodness!

Oh by the way, after Tom and Aryanna sampled this dish, we all decided to have it for dinner. They loved it! I hope your family enjoys this meal too!

oooohhh! i remember when my sister would prepare tuna omelette, the tuna fillings must always have to be Century Tuna :) Century Tuna is really masarap and healthy pa. Not to forget, it gives you a "superbod" :D It's never lost in our weekly grocery list! My ultimate favorite is hot and spicy, with Omega 3!!! :)<3

hello, miss jenni! i tried this recipe a while ago. my mom tasted it. she suggested that you could put some cheese in the half-and-half mixture, so that the cheese won't get burnt when the food is baked.:)
