Liberace's Special 15 Minute Eggs

(1 serving)

  • 1 Tablespoon butter
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup half-and-half or light cream
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 teaspoons grated Parmesan cheese
Warm a ramekin or small baking dish about 2 1/2 to 3 inches across. Put in a little butter. Then break in the eggs. Pour over the half-and-half or cream, which should almost cover the eggs. Dot with remaining butter, sprinkle with salt, pepper, and cheese. Bake in a preheated 375 degree oven for 7 to 8 minutes until the whites are set.

Liberace was a famous, flamboyant pianist and entertainer known for his lavish costumes and opulent jewelry. He reached great success as a recording artist and performer. At certain points in the 1960's and 1970's, he was considered the highest-paid entertainer in the world.

The interesting thing about these 15 minute eggs is that the cooking time is only 7 minutes.
