Recipe inspired by Baked Eggs with Mushrooms and Parmesan from Kalyn’s Kitchen.


  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 3 1/2 oz (100 g) shiitake mushrooms (or any mushrooms you like), wiped clean and coarsely chopped (about 1 1/2 to 2 cups)
  • 1 pinch sea salt
  • 1 pinch black pepper
  • 1 large clove garlic, crushed
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme leaves or 3/4 teaspoon minced fresh thyme leaves
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons heavy cream
  • 1 1/2 oz (40 g) Emmental cheese (or any Swiss cheese you like), shredded (about 1/3 cup)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons minced fresh parsley leaves, for garnish
  • Toast, for serving (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 400F.
  2. Add the butter to a medium skillet over medium heat; once the butter is melted, add the mushrooms and a pinch of salt and pepper. Cook until softened, but not browned, about 6 to 8 minutes. Add the garlic and thyme and cook 2 minutes more, stirring constantly.
  3. Pour the mushrooms into an individual-sized oven-safe gratin dish and sprinkle the cheese on top. Make 2 wells and crack the eggs into them.
  4. Bake until the cheese is melted and the eggs are cooked how you like them (I like mine with set whites and runny yolks, which takes about 10 minutes).
  5. Sprinkle the parsley on top, and serve immediately.
