Coddled Eggs With Mashed Potato

An egg coddler is a porcelain or pottery cup with a lid that is used to prepare a dish called coddled eggs. The eggs are soft-cooked and similar to poached eggs, but the eggs are cooked more slowly than a boiled egg.  We love to eat these eggs, once a month for a change instead of frying eggs for dinner, I make this.  Let's go to the recipe.

Sending this to this month's BM week 2 - Mug treats


3 Large Potatoes - boiled and mashed
2 Tablespoons Red and Green Capsicum - finely chopped
1 Tablespoon Butter
1/4 Teaspoon Rosemary  - powdered
1/4 Teaspoon Fresh Thyme
3 Eggs
3 Tablespoons Cheeza Cheese - grated
Salt & Pepper- to taste

Mix together the mashed potatoes, capsicums, butter, rosemary, thyme and season with salt and pepper, mix well till you get a smooth consistency.

Butter 3 ramekins or small bowls ( I butter two bowls and one small cup cake mold).

Divide the potato mix equally in each bowl.

Crack an egg, carefully over the mashed potato in each bowl.

Sprinkle pepper to taste on the egg. 

Sprinkle a tablespoon of grated cheese in each bowl. Cover the bowl with an aluminum foil.

Preheat the oven to 180 degrees.

Place the bowls in a baking tray. Fill the tray with enough hot water making sure they come half way up the bowl. 

Bake for about 15 - 20 minutes or until the egg whites are set but the yolk is still soft.

Take it out of the oven and serve on its own or as a side to any meal.  

We have this for our dinner along with our sabzi - roti.
