These creamy, deliciously indulgent eggs are baked at high heat in cast iron skillet with heavy cream and butter, which thickens to a gravy as it cooks - perfect for a lazy weekend brunch. You can add some smoked salmon, cheese, ham or mushrooms to dress them up. These can be prepared in individual ramekins too.

  • 1 tbsp Butter, cut into small cubes, plus more for greasing the pan
  • 100 ml Heavy cream
  • 6 Eggs
  • 1 Large pinch of freshly grated nutmeg (optional)
  • Flaky sea salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • Fresh herbs (chives, flat parsley, mint or basil)
  • Keto crackers (or bread, toasted) to serve
  1. Preheat oven to 230C/450F. Pour cream into a greased cast-iron or other ovenproof skillet and sprinkle the cubed butter over the top. Add in some cheese, smoked salmon or bacon if you like.
  2. Gently break an egg into a small bowl and slip egg into skillet. Repeat with remaining eggs. Season with nutmeg, salt and pepper.
  3. Bake until the whites are set and the yolks are still a bit runny, 8 to 10 minutes. Remove from the heat, sprinkle with herbs and more flaky salt, and serve immediately with toasted bread or crackers.
