uovo in cocotte

shirred eggs

uovo in cocotte

Also uova al forno, the Italian version of the French oeuf cocotte (effs baked in a ramekin in a bain-marie). In Italy often means eggs baked with anchovies, mozzarella, herbs and anchovies, or baked with truffles or alla fiorentina with spinach, but there are scores of versions.

A cocottina is the mini version.
