Step by Step Method

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350ºF.

Step 2

Slice off top of each dinner roll, reserving the tops for later.

Step 3

Gently remove some bread from the inside of each roll until there is a hole large enough to accommodate an egg. (Refer to NOTE below)

Step 4

Arrange rolls on a rimmed baking sheet.

Step 5

Crack an egg into each roll, then top each egg with herbs and cream evenly.

Step 6

Season with salt and pepper. Sprinkle with Västerbottensost cheese or Parmesan.

Step 7

Bake until eggs are set and bread is toasted, 20 to 25 minutes.

Step 8

After eggs have cooked for 20 minutes, place bread tops on a separate baking sheet and bake until golden brown. Let sit 5 minutes.

Step 9

Place tops on rolls and brush bread with melted butter. Serve warm.

NOTE: Make sure to not poke holes through the walls of the rolls. You basically need enough of a bread wall to hold up the egg, but depending on the size of your bread roll, you also don't want to have too thick of a wall because you will lose the flavor of the eggs/herbs with too much bread.

Yum! This is a great egg dish and so easily customizable with the various herbs. I only needed one, so I used a large ramekin. Thanks for sharing! CQ4
