Ingredients

Serves 4

  • 4 large eggs
  • 3½ oz (100 g) semi-cooked foie gras
  • 4 tbsp whipping cream
  • 3 tbsp (40 g) butter
  • Fleur de sel, pepper

Preparation

  • Butter the inside of 4 individual ramequins
  • Place some slivers of foie gras in the bottom of each ramequin
  • Break an egg into each ramequin, taking care not to break the yolk
  • Place a tablespoon of cream on top of each ramequin
  • Sprinkle on some cracked black pepper and fleur de sel
  • Bake for 10-15 minutes in an oven preheated to 350°F (180°C)
  • Serve warm.

Suggestion

There are endless variations of this recipe. Here are a few suggestions:
Some people like to reduce the amount of cream by a quarter before topping the eggs. You can also add the cream at the end, once the eggs are cooked.
You can cook the eggs in a bain-marie of boiling water in an oven preheated to 350°F (180°C)
Instead of the ramequins, you can use brioche. Just make a hole in it for the foie gras and egg. If you are using brioche, you would obviously refrain from putting it in a bain-marie ;
Some people replace the cream with Boursin or another cheese flavored with herbs. I would not recommend it with foie gras.

In this particular recipe, because the foie gras transforms the eggs into a starter for special occasions, there is nothing to stop you from sprinkling on a little chopped truffle, or stirring it through the cream. You can also use eggs that have been stored next to a whole truffle.
This recipe is equally enjoyable at a brunch, where you can finish off the leftover foie gras from the previous evening. As for me, I already know what I am going to have for lunch on New Year's Day ;-)
