A quick type of zabaglione? Though I guess if you used hot coffee drizzled in a little at the time, thus "cooking" it, you could actually call it a zabaglione.I'm not used to eat eggs very often.I like them mostly as frittata (any kind), boiled or cooked in tomato sauce (Purgatory eggs) and I also love to beat the yolks with sugar and a bit of Marsala or even espresso coffee...then eat this with spoon..
Since you did that, I ran across a trick someone used when covering their proofing bread, spray the cling wrap with a cooking spray like Pam and it won't stick to anything, but will nicely cover and protect rising bread dough. I'm sure it would work for your eggs too, and there's such a thin film of it, it won't fry them.I think that is what happened to me too! And I ended up with a 'raggy' result. Maybe you are supposed to oil the cling film first.
I've followed his recipe for this several times, substituting chopped ham for the mushrooms.My favorite egg dish by far is Jacque Pepin's eggs cocotte with creamed mushrooms and gruyere cheese. We first had them when I was trying to find different dishes to use up 3 black truffles Craig surprised me with once. The truffles were used as a garnish, but I love the dish even without them.
I looked up this: Oeufs en cocotte Jacques Pépin – The Nosey ChefMy favorite egg dish by far is Jacque Pepin's eggs cocotte
Thought it might be that one - I was just looking at it. This also states 5 to 6 mins but with the water boiling. I presume simmering, not a rolling boil? I will have to try it. I usually bake my eggs en cocotte.
Right, a sort of zabaione even if in my very quick home version and not accurate at all like the original recipe tradition.. but I don’t care very much, it’s something so good that for me is enough like that. I have to say that the addition of hot coffee is special..A quick type of zabaglione?
