Easy Breakfast Cocottes with Eggs and Basil

December 11, 2017


I can't even begin to tell you how excited I was to make something yummy in my new and adorable Le Creuset Mini Round Cocotte set I just got. I fell in love with the color and more with how cute and adorable they are!

I put this recipe with the help of my daughter. We used what was available in our home. You can replace any of the ingredients with others you prefer.  

I love this recipe, because it's healthy, fast and gluten free.  My kids loved it so much they asked for seconds!


4 buttered Cocottes for baking

4 eggs

8 slices of Ham ( you can replace with other type of Deli meat)

Fresh Basil Leaves

Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese

Salt & Pepper to taste


1. Place deli meat in the bottom of each pre-buttered Cocotte

2. Add basil leaves

3. Add shredded cheese


4. Crack on egg inside each Cocotte

5. Season with salt and pepper

6. Place in pre-heated (400 degrees) oven for 20 mins 


7. Remove from oven and let cool for 5 mins

Bon Appetit!
