Servings 4


  • 1-1/2 ounces Gouda or Emmentaler cheese
  • 1 bunch watercress
  • 8 eggs
  • 4 ounces genuine Black Forest ham
  • 4 cocktail tomatoes


  • Grate cheese. Mix the cress, two of the eggs and cheese and season with salt. Divide the egg mixture among 4 greased ovenproof glass egg cups with lids (each should hold around 200 ml).
  • Crack open the remaining eggs and place one on each of the cups. Close the lids and place them in a shallow saute pan filled with lightly simmering water (the water should reach halfway up the glasses). Cook the eggs for about 20 minutes. Serve with ham and cocktail tomatoes.
