Some culinary masters, like the brilliant Jacques Pepin, believe that the best way to test a chef's skill is to judge how he makes an omelette. Well, we can asure you Pepin makes an exceptional one. But his preferred egg dish of choice is oeufs en cocotte: eggs steamed in ramekins or small pots. Though this dish seems fancy and its general lack of presence on any American menu gives the impression that it's hard to make, neither of these assumptions are true. Rather, oeufs en cocotte is a simple, couple-minute process that results in the best egg-dipping dish we've ever tried. Watch the video and prepare to transform the way you like your eggs.
