    Sounds fancy, but quite easy and delicious!

    Serves 4

    4 individual brioches
    6 eggs, beaten
    2 Tbsp snipped fresh chives, plus extra for garnish
    2 Tbsp butter
    3 Tbsp cottage cheese
    5 Tbsp double cream or heavy cream
    Salt and pepper to taste

    Preheat oven to 350°F/180°C.

    Cut the tops of the brioches and set to one side. Carefully scoop out the center of each brioche, leaving a bread case. Put the brioche cases and lids on a baking sheet and bake for 5 minutes until hot and crisp.

    Lightly beat the eggs and season to taste. Add about half the chives. Heat the butter in a medium pan until it begins to foam, then add the eggs and cook, stirring with a wooden spoon until semi-soft.

    Stir in the cottage cheese, cream and the rest of the chives, and continue to cook for 1 - 2 minutes, making sure that the eggs remain soft and creamy.

    To serve, spoon the eggs into the crisp brioche shells and sprinkle with the extra chives, Serve topped with the lids.
