Christmas en cocotte

I’d promised a Christmas day breakfast of my 2007 favourite - oeuf en cocotte. And as smoked salmon seems to be a classic Christmas day ritual, the surprise under the soft egg and cream blanket was an easy choice. And in deference to M’s feeling about too many vegetables, it was shrubbery free! The little ramekins that M has stockpiled into the great formerly crab gratin ceramic dish mountain seemed a little too shallow and slight for my needs so I opted for the quirkily shaped Jamie Oliver party dishes that are not only capacious but happily oven proof. And it was very good!
