  • 1/2 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1/4 small onion
  • 1 small clove garlic minced
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons crumbled feta
  • 2 tablespoons fresh minced herbs such as parsley, dill, scallion, etc.
  • 1 pinch black pepper
  • 1 pinch crushed red pepper flakes


  • Preheat the oven to 400. Butter a 12-ounce gratin dish.
  • Heat the butter in a small skillet over medium heat. Once melted, add the onion and cook until starting to soften, about 3 minutes, stirring frequently. Add the garlic and cook 30 seconds more, stirring constantly. Spread this mixture into the bottom of the prepared gratin dish.
  • Pour the cream on top of the sautéed onion, and carefully crack in the eggs. Sprinkle on the feta, half of the herbs, black pepper, and crushed red pepper flakes.
  • Bake until the egg whites are set and the yolk is cooked to your desired level, about 10 to 14 minutes (the eggs pictured here were cooked for about 17 minutes for ever-so-slightly-soft yolks).
  • Sprinkle on the remaining half of the fresh herbs, and serve.
