Ingredients

  • A glug of olive oil
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 300g purple sprouting broccoli, cut into batons,
  • A grating of parmesan
  • 8 free-range eggs
  • 110ml single cream

Method

  1. Heat the oven to 220°C/fan200°C/gas 7. Heat the olive oil in a large frying pan, then gently fry the onion for 5 minutes. Meanwhile, blanch the broccoli in salted boiling water for 3 minutes. Drain well, add to the pan, then turn up the heat and fry for 3-4 minutes, stirring, until slightly coloured. Stir in a grating of parmesan and season well.
  2. Divide the veg among 4 x 250ml ramekins or 4 x small pans. Crack the 2 eggs into each ramekin/pan and season. Divide the cream between the 4 ramekins/pans, then grate over more parmesan. Put the ramekins/pans on a baking tray and bake for 6-8 minutes until the whites are cooked.
  3. Serve the baked broccoli and parmesan eggs with slices of garlic butter toast, if you like.
