Eggs Gruyere


Cooking Time:

45 minutes


Serves 8


  • 2 cups grated Gruyere cheese
  • 1/2 stick butter (cut into small cubes)
  • 1/2 t. salt
  • Dash white pepper
  • 1 1/2 t. dry mustard
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 12 eggs beaten
  •   Bread crumbs - made from any old bread or rolls
  •   Olive oil - small amount
  • 8 1/4" Tomato slices
  •   Parsley (as a garnish)


7 X 11 baking dish


Preheat oven to 350°.  

Spread the cheese evenly over the bottom of dish.  Distribute the butter over the cheese.  Mix the seasoning and cream and drizzle ½ of this mixture over the cheese.  Pour the eggs into the baking dish and then drizzle the remaining cream/seasoning mixture into the dish.  Bake until a knife comes-out clean (approximately 45 minutes). Do not over cook.  Protect the top from over-browning by placing foil on top. 

Add a small amount of olive oil to your bread crumbs (just to moisten).  Add one tablespoon of bread crumbs to each tomato slice.  Place slices onto a sprayed baking sheet and broil until toasted.  Top each portion with a tomato slice. Garnish with parsley.
