Apparently both are baked (egg) dishes and done in flat bottomed dishes 

So is there a difference between the two?

Ans then agaon what are eggs en cocotte - eggs baked in a ramekin dish

 

Thanks

Hi,

Shirred eggs is the texture name of the baked eggs. Cocotte eggs is the name that we give to eggs baked in a cocotte. So they are all the same. If you search for "cocotte" on google you will find out that cocotte is only the place where we put the eggs in, so we call them cocotte eggs.

 

Hope i could help.

Happy cooking!

In France today, "oeufs au plat" or "oeufs sur le plat"= sunny side up eggs.

I agree, and eggs en cocotte or shirred eggs are baked in a dish.

 

Shirred eggs:

 

En cocotte:

Sur le plat:
