A little sceptical over the newly available black garlic? Me too if I am honest. I’ve dished out a few of the individual cloves to a few people. Most didn’t even try it. Claiming an aversion to garlic breath… and other such, frankly, pitiful excuses. Have to give my mother her due though; at least she took a nibble before pronouncing that she “was rather unimpressed”.

However, having just mashed a black garlic clove in a little unsalted butter and spread the mush over a lightly toasted slice of bread, I am a total convert. This has to be the best garlic bread ever! Add a pinch of salt or use, as I did, a little of Steenbergs Organic Mediterranean Salt Blend for something truly scrumptious. The toast is a superb accompaniment to these Baked Eggs…

Baked Eggs With Black Garlic

Using the latest 'hot' ingredient, Black Garlic, this is a superb take on the age old Oeufs en Cocotte recipe.


  • Handful spinach leaves
  • Butter
  • 1 clove black garlic
  • Large egg
  • 2 tsp double cream


  1. Butter an ovenproof ramakin dish.
  2. Cook the spinach in a little butter with a garlic clove and a little seasoning.
  3. Arrange the cooked spinach in the bottom of the ramakin, top with an egg, season, and pour over the cream. top with a little grated parmesan.
  4. Bake in the oven for about 7 minutes unitl the white is set but the yolk is still runny.
  5. Serve with Black Garlic Bread.
