bed and breakfast eggs

this weekend pat mcewen was in town and we made these for breakfast. he thought they were quite delicious. i am posting them per his request because he really wants his sister julie to make them. so, julie this is for you... (but also for everyone else, because they are really tasty and really easy to make for a crowd because you bake them and they are all ready at the same time)...

- 4 english muffins (toasted)
- 4 eggs
- 4 slices canadian bacon
- mozzarella cheese, shredded
- 4 tablespoons heavy cream
- paprika
- salt and pepper

preheat oven to 350 degrees. in four ramekins, place slice of canadian bacon in each. create a sort of "nest" with mozzarella cheese around the outer edge of each ramekin and crack an egg into the middle of it, careful not to break the yoke. pour a tablespoon of cream on top of each egg and sprinkle with paprika. add salt and pepper to your liking. place ramekins on cookie sheet and bake at 350 for about 20 minutes. (we like our yoke to still be a little runny, so you can adjust the time accordingly... note that when you pull it out of the oven it does get a little firmer as it sits...). let ramekins cool for about 5 minutes. then, using a rubber spatula, separate the cheese from around the outer edge of the ramekin and scoop your spatula up under the bacon and then slide it off the spatula onto the english muffin (so that the canadian bacon sits on the the english muffin with the egg and cheese on top... i hope this makes ok sense...). i think you are supposed to butter the ramekins, but i never have and they always seem to scoop right out just fine. it is kind of like a much simpler eggs benedict type dish. hope you make it! enjoy!
