Baked eggs

Cab I make baked eggs without adding dairy for someone who's allergic? Would subbing in some olive pil work?

I second the olive oil suggestion - I never used cream myself. But what about coconut milk? If you like it, it makes for a great cream substitute, especially if you are planning to add spices or curry into your eggs!

Have you considered just olive oil poaching? Essentially the same as water poaching...

I followed Amanda's recipe but omitted the cream since I didn't have any. They turned out delicious with just salt and olive oil.

Thanks for the suggestion. Happen not to want to go the shakahuka route...

In lots of Mediterranean countries, including Israel and Italy, eggs are baked in tomato sauce, with lots of spices, and olive oil - sometimes feta or other cheese is stirred in, but not always. Really tasty.

Why don't you try it and let us know your results?
