It’s no secret that I adore eggs… So when I find a new way to cook them I’m like a kid in a candy store. A fabulous friend shared a post by Food52 on all the different ways to cook eggs and one piqued my interest.
That was cooking eggs in (Heavy) Double Cream or as they eloquently call it Caramelized Cream Eggs (via Ideas in Food) They described it as life-changing in the way you cook eggs and in fact the way that you look at ingredients. They dropped the word luxuriously and I was completely sold.
I’ve cooked the eggs a couple of time exactly as Food52 suggested and each time it was divine… But it got me thinking about flavouring the cream with things and the first thing that came to mind was Cacio e Pepe. With that creamy black pepper laced sauce… I love it so…
So this take on Eggs in Caramelised Cream was born. It has no cheese in it… but when the cream caramelises it takes on a very similar flavour and its DIVINE!
