Recipe Ingredient Details:
1 tablespoon olive oil (plus more for oiling ramekins)
1 small leek, white and pale green parts (halved lengthwise and thinly sliced crosswise)
2 cups very thinly sliced cremini or button mushrooms
1/2 cup shaved or shredded Asiago cheese
4 large eggs
Minced fresh parsley (for garnish)
Preheat oven to 375˚. Lightly oil four 4-ounce ramekins.
Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large sauté pan over medium heat and add leeks and mushrooms. Sprinkle with salt and cook for 3–4 minutes, until mushrooms are softened. Divide vegetables among prepared ramekins. Top each with about 2 tablespoons cheese.
Crack one egg into a small cup and carefully pour egg over vegetables and cheese in one ramekin, being careful not to break yolk. Repeat with remaining eggs and ramekins.
Arrange ramekins in a baking dish or glass casserole. Pour boiling or very hot water into dish, halfway up ramekin sides. Carefully transfer dish to oven and bake 20–25 minutes (check at 15 minutes), until eggs are set but yolks are still tender. Remove from oven and shower with parsley. Serve immediately.
