Baked eggs with black pudding & spiced mango chutney

I love eggs. Scrambled, sunnyside up, poached, boiled, steamed, baked. I love them all. It is a definite must have on my breakfast menu on the weekends. To cook the perfect egg is not an easy task. Extreme care is required. And timing is crucial. The pefect egg is a matter of preference. What is perfect for you may not be for another.

Totally inspired in my recent consumption of baked eggs at Birdman and Cumulus, I decided that it is time to make my version of baked eggs. This dish is an adaptation of what I have experienced.

This dish gives you the freedom of coming up with your own combinations. Smoked fish with cubed avocado and chilli flakes. Or just some nice grated soft cheese with seasoning of black pepper.
