"Little Paris Kitchen": the breakfast treats

“Little Paris Kitchen” is the new program on tee-vee that made me to forget my beloved “Desperate Housewives”. And it’s not that there is anything to compare between them two! I used to be really devoted to watching a little of Wisteria Lane mysteries, but now I am just dazzled by this grand appearance of Rachel Khoo and her wonderfully looking food, style sense and her little kitchen. I love her lifestyle so much… in fact I even feel a little bit jealous.

Even though there have been only two series, I have managed to try some of “Little Paris Kitchen” recipes myself: two breakfast treats! First I tried Croque Madame muffins as seeing it how it was created really inspired me!

Then I made these Eggs in pots (oeufs en cocotte)…

And I can say that I finally found something better for breakfast than Eggs Benedict…. and it is easier to make! Except I used bacon instead of lumpfish roe since is really difficult to find it in UK. Here is the recipe.


Ingrediants:    150g creme fraiche
                       salt and freshly ground black pepper
                       pinch nutmeg
                       handful of chopped dill
                       1 rasher of bacon
  1. Preheat the oven to 180C
  2. Season the creme fraiche with salt, freshly ground pepper and a pinch of nutmeg.
  3. Place a heaped tablespoon of creme fraiche in the bottom of a ramekin, followed by a little dill.
  4. Crack an egg on top, add a second tablespoon of creme fraiche and sprinkle with a pinch each of salt, pepper and nutmeg. Add small tear of bacon on top. Repeat all this with three more ramekins.
  5. Place the ramekins in a baking dish and pour enough lukewarm water into the dish to come halfway up the sides of the ramekins.
  6. Bake for 15 minutes or until the egg yolks are set to your liking.
  7. Finish each serving with some dill.

Bon Appetit
