Shirred Eggs Metternich
I'm sure that today there are not too many people who even know who Metternich was. I found Shirred Eggs Metternich in the Hotel St. Francis Cook Book by Victor Hirtzler, I'm sure he was running out of names for some of his dishes. In more simple terms it's shirred eggs with mushrooms and cheese.
Shirred Eggs vs Eggs en Cocotte
In this homogenized world everything seems to be grouped together and made to be the same. While both eggs shirred and eggs en cocotte are baked, that is the only similarity.
Shirred eggs are baked in a lower dish very similar to a small graten dish. Eggs en cocotte are baked in ramekins in a water bath, it's subtle difference but it is a difference .
With this recipe I add my easy breakfast potatoes, a simple recipe that will fill up the hungriest.
The ingredients are for one serving, simply multiply by the number of people you are serving. You can use any kind of cheese you would like to.
