  1. Heat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4.

  2. Lightly oil or butter a 12 hole muffin tray. Line the base and most of the sides of each mould with a slice of ham, then break an egg into the hollow.

  3. Drizzle with the cream, and scatter with sea salt, pepper, parsley and parmesan.

  4. Bake for 15-20 minutes until the egg is just set and starting to shrink away from the sides of the tin.

  5. Leave to cool for five minutes, then run a knife around each mould to loosen the ham and egg, and remove to a wire tray. Eat warm, or at room temperature.

  6. Serve with a handful of herb and baby leaf salad.
