Baked egg with salmon and cheddar cheese

Hubby wanted a poached egg for breakfast this morning.  I put heating up water in a small saucepan when I decided to be creative and make him a baked egg instead.  I used whatever ingredients I had in the fridge, but if you have any mushrooms, spinach and tomatoes, they’d give brilliantly with the dish as well.


  • 1 egg
  • 2 – 3 tbsp double cream
  • 1 tbsp sliced salmon
  • 1 tbsp grated cheddar
  • a pinch of salt and pepper
  • butter for greasing


  1. Pre-heat the oven at 180 degrees
  2. Boil some water in a kettle
  3. Grease a ramekin with the butter
  4. Place the salmon and cheddar in the ramekin
  5. Pour the cream on top of the salmon and cheddar
  6. Break the egg on top of the cream
  7. Season with salt and pepper
  8. Place the ramekin onto a baking dish
  9. Pour boiling water into the dish until it reaches midway of the sides of the ramekin
  10. Carefully place the dish in the oven and leave to cook for 15 minutes until the whites are set and the yolk partially runny
  11. Serve with toast
