Herb Baked Eggs inspired by Midnight in Paris #FoodnFlix

These delicious eggs baked in cream and butter and sprinkled with fresh herbs make a perfect breakfast or brunch dish.



I was inspired to make this dish after watching Midnight in Paris for Food n Flix this month.....


Food 'n Flix

The members of Food n Flix get together each month and watch a film chosen by one of our members.  Then we head on into the kitchen and create a recipe inspired by the film.  We share this recipe on our blogs or on instagram and then the host concludes the month with a round-up of all the recipes inspired by the fillm

This month's film was Midnight in Paris and was chosen by Debra of Eliot's Eats.  You can learn how to join in the festivities by going to the Guidelines Page.  


I had never seen this Woody Allen film that debuted in 2011.  It stars Owen Wilson as Gil, a screenwriter who takes his fiancee to Paris. 

Gil is a romantic at heart and thinks that bliss would have been living in Paris during the 1920's.  His fiancee is more pragmatic and has total disdain for Gil's romantacism.  They have a falling out and Gil takes to walking the streets alone dreaming of how life may have been.

On one of the excursions he finds himself picked up at the stroke of midnight and taken back in time to enjoy the night with the Jazz age era's authors, actresses and playwrights.  

This is a fun filled movie that I don't know how I missed for all these years.  There is not a lot of food in this movie but there are a lot of cocktails and wine.

There are a lot of restaurant scenes but not a lot of shots of food.  I pulled out my Barefoot in Paris Cookbook written by Ina Garten and decided to make these Herb Baked Eggs for brunch one morning.

I have several of Garten's cookbooks.  I like them because the recipes are simple, easy to follow and always seem to turn out very well.  These eggs are no exception.



I made a sourdough baguette to serve with this egg dish.  I will be sharing that recipe with you another time.  It was the perfect accompaniment for dipping into these wonderful, gooey, herb flavored eggs.
