Skillet Baked Eggs with Cream and Parmesan

Skillet Baked Eggs with Cream and Parmesan

I had a big craving for baked eggs recently so I decided to splurge and make some skillet baked eggs with cream and parmesan served with buttery toast soldiers. This breakfast is quite decadent due to the butter, cream, parmesan, and toast but it’s oh so worth it and I savored each and every bite. I love that these company-worthy skillet eggs take less than 10 minutes to make and use only a few ingredients that I normally have on hand.

How to Make Skillet Baked Eggs with Cream and Parmesan

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

Heat a small cast iron skillet over medium heat then add the butter. Remove from the heat as soon as the butter is melted.

Crack the eggs into the skillet then drizzle the top of them with the heavy cream. Next, sprinkle the minced parmesan, shallot, and thyme leaves on top of the eggs. Season with sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste.
