Total Time:
30 mins


  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter, plus more for the ramekins

  • 1 cup thinly sliced white or cremini mushrooms

  • 3 large Swiss chard leaves, stems and ribs removed, leaves shredded

  • 1/4 cup vegetable stock

  • Salt and freshly ground pepper

  • 8 large eggs

  • 1/4 cup heavy cream

  • 2 tablespoons freshly grated Parmesan cheese


  1. Preheat the oven to 400° and lightly butter four 1/2-cup ramekins. In a medium skillet, melt the 1 tablespoon of butter. Add the mushrooms and cook over high heat, stirring occasionally, until tender and just beginning to brown, about 4 minutes. Add the chard leaves and stock and cook over moderate heat, stirring, until wilted, 2 to 3 minutes; season with salt and pepper.

  2. Spoon the vegetables into the ramekins. Crack 2 eggs into each ramekin. Add 1 tablespoon of the cream to each and sprinkle each with 1/2 tablespoon of the Parmesan cheese. Bake for about 13 minutes, or until the egg whites are just set. Serve right away.
