These little one pot wonders are effortless to make and deliciously pleasing to eat. The Farmsmoked Ham can easily be substituted with Gypsy Ham or Black Forest Ham. Tim Noakes converts can pair the dish with crunchy, nutty crackers while others can simply pair it with toast. 

Ingredients

  • 50g Butter
  • 4 slices Hartlief Farmsmoked Ham
  • 8 Free-range eggs
  • 60ml Cream
  • 60ml Freshly grated parmesan cheese
  • Salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C.
  2. Grease four ramekins with butter.
  3. Line the ramekins with ham.
  4. Gently break the eggs into the ramekins.
  5. Spoon 15ml cream and 15ml parmesan into each ramekin.
  6. Lightly season with salt and pepper.
  7. Place the ramekins on a baking tray and pour boiling water onto the tray until the ramekins are half covered. Oven is important when cooking eggs for even heat distribution.
  8. Carefully place the tray into the oven and bake for 10 to 15 minutes, depending how you prefer your eggs.
  9. Serve hot with crunchy, nutty crackers. Or with hot, buttered toast if you’re not banting.

  • 20ml Psyllium husk, available in health stores
  • 325ml Water
