- 4 tsp. unsalted butter, plus more for buttering
- 8 eggs

ham, crumbled cooked bacon, chopped

Preheat an oven to 350°F.
Place the coddlers in a baking dish and pour in hot water to come halfway up the sides of the coddlers. Bake until the whites are just set and the yolks are runny, 25 to 30 minutes, or until done to your liking.
Using an oven mitt, remove the coddlers from the baking dish. Remove the lids and serve the eggs immediately in the coddlers.
