  • Ramekins


  • 8 Eggs
  • 2 tbsp Butter
  • 2 tbsp Olive Oil
  • 50 grams Mushrooms finely chopped
  • 1 medium Potato peeled and diced
  • 1 large Avocado cubed
  • 2 Shallots finely chopped
  • 50 grams Blue Cheese optional
  • 1 Cayenne Chili finely chopped, optional
  • 1 tsp Black Pepper freshly cracked
  • 2 tsp Paprika
  • 2 tsp Oregano
  • 1 tsp Garlic Powder
  • Salt to taste


  • Take all of your prepared ingredients (sans eggs and cheese) and add them to a mixing bowl. Give everything a good toss to ensure everything is coated in olive oil, then add to a hot pan to saute for about 5 minutes.
  • When the potatoes are softened, divide up the ingredients into 4 ramekins. Add crumbled blue cheese here if you so desire, along with 1-2 tsp of butter. Crack over two eggs and place the ramekins on a baking tray.
  • Place in the oven at 175 Celsius for 15-20 minutes, or until the eggs are set. If you want runnier eggs take them out sooner. Serve hot.
