Method

00:15
 
Preheat the oven to 180 °C.

Grease six large ramekins or 125 ml containers with a little of the oil. Line each ramekin with a few rashers of bacon and pack onto a baking tray. (A muffin pan can also be used.)

Meanwhile, heat the rest of the oil in a frying pan and sauté onion and mushrooms with the herbs until soft. Season to taste.

Divide the mixture between the ramekins and sprinkle sun-dried tomatoes on top. Crack an egg into each ramekin. Gently cover each bowl with ramekin.

Bake for 10-15 minutes or until the eggs are cooked to your preference. Sprinkle chives over and serve with rocket and toast.
