The reason you see two yolks is because I doubled the recipe for my own wicked reasons. I’m not trying to hoodwink you.

Bake for 8 minutes, rotating halfway through, until just set in the centre.  Allow them to sit on the baking sheet for 2 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.  And then of course you will need to eat them.
