Recipe From Russia: A Simple Egg Dish – Glazky (Little Eyes)

This dish has a appropriate name – “Glazky” (“Little Eyes”) – Which comes from the way it looks after it is baked and ready to eat. This dish is for those special guests whom you wish to show, that they are worth that extra effort at breakfast. No, it is not made from eye balls and Yes, I can assure you, it’s delicious. 🙂

So lets eat some Glazky…


  • 4 medium eggs
  • 100g white cheese (your choice and shredded)
  • 6 to 8 tbsp. sour cream (thick)
  • salt to taste (a few pinches)

Separate egg whites from yolks and be careful not to damage yolks. (This is the most important part)

Mix (whip) the whites with a fork in a bowl and ad a pinch of salt, mix with a whipping motion some more.

Pour whipped egg whites into a baking pan greased with oil, then layer half of the shredded cheese on top.

Make four indented areas in the cheese with a big spoon and put yolks carefully in these indents. (eye balls)

Put sour cream around the yolks and on the cheese but not on top of the yolks.(Remember leave yolks uncovered)

Add rest of the cheese very carefully and cover the sour cream but not the yolks. (Do not cover yolks)

Bake in preheated oven at 300 degrees F. for 7 to 10 minutes. (careful you want it done and firm but not burnt)


There you have yellow eyeballs in a white egg and cheese delight… (Yummy)
