  • 1 tablespoon heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoon Pecorino Romano
  • 1 tablespoon chives, chopped
  • Salt & pepper


  • Preheat toaster oven to 350℉.
  • Butter the dish and add the heavy cream. Crack an egg into it and make sure the yolk doesn’t touch the sides. Sprinkle cheese and chives on top, add salt and pepper and put into toaster oven.

  • Serve & enjoy!
