Egg Baked Inside a Muffin

http://cookingstoned.tv/recipe/egg-baked-inside-muffin/

I admit it, I really love sticking an egg in something. Oh, get your mind out of the gutter! But if you’ve seen my Avocado Fried Egg, Kale Baked Eggs or my Artichoke Baked Eggs, you know exactly what I am talking about. So an egg baked inside a muffin seems like the logical next step, yes? Oh, and it is… savory, cheesy and sweet yolk running everywhere. Yum!

  • Eggs, room temperature
  • Water and Ice
  • 1 Red Onion, small dice
  • 2 ½ Cups Flour
  • 2 Teaspoons Salt, divided
  • ¼ Teaspoon Ground Black Pepper
  • 1 Tablespoon Baking Powder
  • ½ Teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1 ¼ Cups Buttermilk
  • ½ Cup Butter
  • 1 sprig Thyme, leaves minced
  • 3 Ounces Cheddar
  • 3 Ounces Gruyere
  • 3 Ounces Parmesan
  • 1 Teaspoon Olive Oil
