  1. Butter a shirred egg dish (a small casserole or custard dish).
  2. Put the dish on a low heat to melt the butter, or just add 2–3 tsp cream.
  3. Break an egg in the dish over the cream and season with salt and pepper.
  4. Optionally, sprinkle with shredded cheese and/or bread crumbs.
  5. Bake in the oven at 375°F long enough to set the whites of the eggs. Alternatively, cook by placing the dish directly on low heat.
  6. Serve in the same dish.
