Baked Eggs with Yoghurt and Chilli Butter






 
 
 
 
Most days my lunches are pretty standard - leftovers or sandwiches or sandwiches made with leftovers, but some days I push the boat out.
 
 
 
Baked Eggs with Yoghurt and Chilli Butter
slightly adapted from here
Serves 1
 
1 small head of curly endive (chicory or you can use escarole) washed and roughly chopped
1 tablespoon olive oil
Sea salt flakes
2 eggs
1/4 cup Greek yoghurt
1/2 clove garlic, crushed
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
Pinch dried chilli flakes
Pinch smoked paprika
2 sage leaves, finely shredded
 
Preheat the oven to 150C.
 
Heat the oil in a frying pan over medium heat, add the endive and a good pinch of salt and cook, stirring, for about 5 minutes until wilted and most of the liquid has evaporated. Spoon it into a small, shallow ramekin. Break the eggs on top and bake in the oven for 10 - 15 minutes, until the whites are set.
 
Meanwhile, mix the crushed garlic and yoghurt together in a small bowl with a pinch of salt. Set aside.
 
Melt the butter in a small saucepan and add the chilli flakes and smoked paprika. Once the butter starts to foam and the sage and cook for a minute or so to infuse the butter. Remove from the heat.
 
Once the eggs are cooked, take them out of the oven and dollop a big spoon of garlicky yoghurt on top of the eggs. Pour the hot chilli butter over the yoghurt and eggs.
