- 1). Preheat your broiler.
- 2). Grease your baking dish with butter or oil. For ease, use a pastry brush and sweep melted butter or oil over the bottom and up the sides of the dish.
- 3). Sprinkle breadcrumbs lightly over the bottom of the dish. Use well-ground breadcrumbs to avoid large clumps of bread in your eggs.
- 4). Crack your egg into the ramekin. If you want a scrambled egg, crack the egg in a small bowl, add a teaspoon of milk and pour the mixture into the ramekin.
- 5). Sprinkle salt, pepper and any other desired seasonings over the top of the egg.
- 6). Place the dish on a cookie sheet for stability. Slide the cookie sheet under the broiler.
- 7). Prop the broiler door open slightly with the handle of a wooden spoon lodged between the door and the stove.
- 8). Broil your egg until it's as firm as you desire, checking progress every 2 to 3 minutes.
- 9). Remove the cookie sheet from the oven and allow the egg to cool for a minute or two before serving. You may serve directly from the ramekin or turn the egg onto a plate.
