  1. As a lover of eggs I’m glad you’ve come up with an interesting recipe for eggs. I’ve never tried featherbed eggs and never heard of them but looking at the ingredients, I’m sure it must be very tasty. 
    I’m wondering if I could make it in a bigger oven-proof dish when preparing it for 3 people (of course multiplied the amount by three). Or does it have to be served in a dish for each person separately?

    1. Lenka, it can absolutely be prepared for multiple people by increasing the ingredients you use!  Since I live alone, I make it in single portions so I can have it fresh every morning.  I also love to make something different with eggs but, if truth be told, I use this particular one because I never know what to do with the cornbread I always have leftover! 

  2. oh. what a nice recipe you presented here. I like the writing style.it is very concise and straight forward to the readers.

    At the first glance, I see this recipe I wish to prepare and taste it soon because of the very detailed writing style. As a member of Asian culture we wish to taste this kind of recipes it touches our taste buds a lot I think.

    1. Thank you for your kind comments, Chinthaka!  I hope you’ll check in after you make this and let me know if you enjoyed it!

  3. Thanks for this very interesting recipe, it is my first time to hear about featherbed eggs but by the look of it, it looks very delicious, I would like to try out this recipe one of these days. I really enjoy eating eggs, apart from its health benefit, it also simply taste good, I can image the taste when mixed with cheese and milk, mhhh!

    1. It’s my go-to when I have leftover cornbread!  I love eggs as well and this makes a great and easy breakfast!

  4. I have never heard of featherbed eggs, and I eat eggs a lot. I am definitely going to give this recipe a try, but I just want to ask you if you have a substitution for the cornbread. I don’t see that sold in the shops around here, so could one use normal bread, or would this not work?

    Also could one make it in a bigger bowl to serve more people and just x the number of ingredients. I take it that this recipe is for one person?

    1. I eat a lot of eggs as well and love to find new ways to make them!  You can absolutely use regular bread in this recipe to make a savory bread pudding!
