Baked eggs in tomato sauce: a family favorite...

...well, it's a favorite for three out of five of us and majority rules, right?  Sure.  Anyway, this stuff is awesome and incredibly easy to make.

What you'll need:

  • baking dish(es) (you can make it in one big dish, casserole style, or as individual servings in smaller oven safe dishes)
  • fresh eggs
  • marinara sauce (homemade or store-bought, I won't judge if you won't)
  • cheeeeeeese.  Oh, yeah.  (I used asiago and fresh parmesan, use whatever you like)
Preheat your oven to 350°.  Spoon some marinara sauce into each baking dish, just enough to cover the bottom.  Crack eggs over marinara sauce, being careful not to break the yolk (unless you want you yolk broken, of course).  Dribble a little more sauce over the eggs and top with cheese.  Bake for 20-30 minutes or until the eggs are cooked to your liking.  Proceed to nom.

Seriously.  Easy.

This is a great any-time-of-day meal, and it's not nearly as unhealthy as it looks or tastes, either.  I served it at a Mother's Day brunch a couple of years ago and it went over very well.  Give it a try and let me know what you think.

This recipe was adapted from Martha St Martha Stewart's baked eggs in tomato parmesan sauce...  I just made it more "mom friendly."
