Egg en cocotte with ceps and chicken liver

Yield: 1 servings

Measure Ingredient
6 \N Eggs
500 grams Ceps
400 grams Chicken liver
3 \N Cloves garlic
1 tablespoon Chopped parsley
200 millilitres Double cream
100 grams Shallots
\N \N Vegetable oil

Egg en Cocotte: Slice the ceps quite finely. Heat the butter in a pan and add the ceps. Once they have started to brown add the shallots and garlic.

After a few mins season with salt and pepper and remove to a liquidiser.

In the same pan melt some more butter,. Make sure it is very hot then add the chicken livers. Turn them regularly. After 4 - 5 mins they should be quite brown, but pink in the middle. Put in the liquidiser with the liquid from the pan and mix it all up (not too much - the texture must be coarse).

Add a little double cream and mix it in.

Spoon the puree into ramekins so they are half full. Break a whole egg on top of each and season with salt and pepper. Put a little butter on the yolk. Put the ramekins in a large dish filled with hot water and heat on the hob for about 8 mins. Then finish off for a few mins in the oven. When they are ready, the white will be quite firm, but the yolk runny. Dress with parsley.

Custard:

Add more cream to the mixture in the liquidiser, plus 2 eggs, salt and pepper and mix until smooth. Butter 3 more ramekins with soft butter (not melted) and spoon the mixture into the ramekins. As before, put the ramekins in a large dish of hot water and put straight into the oven on a low heat for about 20 mins. Run the blade round the edge and remove from the ramekins. Pour over a sauce made from cream, a little Madeira and pepper and parsley.
