Today I… had a little pot of comfort


Thank you all for your amazing out pouring of kind words and prayers for my family and me. I am truly touched by your warmth.

I am also comforting myself with other warmth, like this little pot of baked eggs with smokey paprika. Just toast up some little squares of stale bread tossed in a little salt and olive oil until they are slightly crunchy. Then, top with an egg (or two if you like), and tiny pour of cream and a healthy dash of smoky paprika (hot or sweet, whichever you prefer), and bake at 350F until the whites are set.

Getting into the kitchen always brings me joy. It’s a celebration of life and love that I suppose is what Valentines day is supposed to be about. I don’t usually do anything to celebrate it, but my mom always did send a card. I think she would have liked this little pot of deliciousness.

  1. Hi Lara,
    I recently made baked eggs on a bed of wilted spinach, with a dash of cream, and parmesan, (I kept it tradional) and apart from the fact it was cold by the time I ate mine (I spent half an hour photographing it!) it was definately full of comfort. I am always amazed by the powers of eggs , Ingrid x

  2. These look so lovely. Baked eggs are one of my favorite dishes, and I adore the little crocks you’ve prepared them in. A pot of comfort is the perfect way to describe these- just perfect.

  3. Hi Lara. I’ve always love eggs any meal and this pot of baked eggs truly comes fantastic and making me hungry. Maybe even without the smokey paprika, your recipe and presentation is truly a masterpiece. I love everything. Thanks for sharing.-Maria
