Serves: 2
  • Butter
  • 2 tablespoons Cream
  • 2 Eggs
  • 2 oz. (roughly 24 thin slices) Finocchiona, julienned
  • 1 clove Fresh Garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon Fresh Parsley, chopped
  • Salt and freshly ground Black Pepper
  1. In a small sauce pan, sauté Finocchiona until crispy, then add garlic and cook for another minute. Set aside.
  2. Heat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Smear a bit of butter in 2 custard cups or small ramekins. Put a tablespoon of cream into the bottom of each. Then split the cooled Finocchiona and garlic evenly between the two dishes. Break one egg into each of the cups, then put the cups on a baking sheet.
  3. Bake for 10-14 minutes, or until the eggs are just set and the whites are solidified. Sprinkle each with salt, pepper, and half of the parsley and serve immediately.
