This is one of England’s favorite ways of serving eggs.
Butter individual baking dishes with a teaspoon of butter or margarine. Slide one or two eggs into each dish, being careful not to break the yolks. Sprinkle the top with salt and pepper to taste and add a small dab of butter or margarine.
Place baking dishes in a pan of hot water and bake in a preheated 325 degree oven for about 8 minutes, or a little longer for firmer eggs. Make sure to remove eggs from the oven before they are completely cooked, as they will continue cooking from the heat of the baking dish. Serve hot with toast.
