This ramp ricotta baked eggs dish is easy, versatile and can be thrown together in minutes for breakfast, lunch, or dinner.
We love eggs! Scrambled! Vietnamese style, sunny side up with lap cheong, soy sauce, and baguette! Seven minute eggs with avocado toast! And baked! We go through about two dozens a week. One of my favorite spring egg recipes is baked eggs with ramps and homemade ricotta. If you can’t find ramps, you can substitute with other veggies like spinach, kale, or anything you fancy. I used homemade ricotta cheese, but goat cheese or feta would be a delicious alternative. The only trick to this dish is to avoid overcooking the eggs. The yolks should be soft and runny and white barely cooked. I love how quick, easy, and versatile this dish is and can be thrown together in minutes for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Make sure you have a good loaf of sourdough to soak up all that goodness.
