Low-carb, low calorie, and 15 minutes are what make this the ideal breakfast. Each bite is layered with salty ham and smooth fluffy egg all covered by a velvety smooth crème fraîche sauce enhanced with your favorite herbs (parsley, chives, or basil). Remember to bake your casserole dishes in a bain-marie, a form of baking that involves the dishes being placed on a baking sheet, surrounded by an inch or two of water. As a final, point garnish with salt and pepper.
