Okay, stop drooling now :)

I am not going to bore you all with info like: eggs are so versatile, they are essential to many things that we cook; what would cooking be without them or the fact that top chefs are now making gourmet egg dishes and giving this humble ingredient the respect and honour it deserves. Rather, I am just going to tell you simply that instead of boiled or scrambled, I thought I'd try having my breakfast of eggs, baked.

These were so good, so simple to make and I am beginning to feel that for a long, long time, this is how I am going to have eggs whenever I feel like having them (at least for breakfast or brunch).
