The recipe for baked eggs with cheese, King Charles III’s favorite brunch

- Article Top Advertisement -

At the time when he shared this recipe with the people, King Charles III was still only a prince. Even then, however, his institutional commitments covered every aspect of his actions: even telling his favorite brunch recipe step by step, in fact, had a very specific political-economic objective. It was 2020, and Covid had forced everyone into the house, causing fears for the future of the economy and transforming everyone into skilled cooks, struggling with the stove and with too much free time to fill.

Thus, the then Prince Charles decided to encourage his subjects to support the British dairy industry, giving them a mouthwatering royal recipe based on cheese. The Cheesy Baked Eggs recipe was published with all the details needed to replicate it on ClarenceHouse’s Instagram page for the British Cheese Weekender, and it’s worth dusting off today, with the official coronation time approaching and the proposal of Buckingham Palace to participate in the event by preparing a “Large Coronation Lunch”. Here is how to prepare this hearty dish for Sunday brunch.

35g strong soft cheese (e.g. Tunworth, Golden Cenarth)

an egg

80 ml of cream

15 g grated hard cheese (e.g. Old Winchester)

Fresh basil leaves


Butter a small baking dish and line it with the spinach, making a small hole in the centre. Arrange the cherry tomato (quartered) or sun-dried tomato (chopped) on top of the spinach. Spread the soft cheese around the plate between the tomatoes. Add the chopped basil leaves and, if desired, add any cold cuts. Season with salt and pepper. Break the egg into the center of the spinach. Pour the cream over the egg, avoiding breaking the yolk. Sprinkle with grated hard cheese. Place in a hot oven (180°C) for 8-10 minutes. Leave to rest for a few minutes before serving.
