Winter is finally upon us in New York City and we are all in the mood for some comfort food. Today as my husband and I came up with a dinner plan, we decided we were in the mood for this delicious comfort dish: Italian Baked Eggs. This is something anyone can make with only a few ingredients that most people will have on hand most of the time.
Step 1-Tomato Sauce in a baking dish. We made our own quick Marinara sauce (1 can San Marzano tomatoes, garlic sautéed in olive oil, salt, pepper, basil).
Step 2-Add eggs to tomato sauce. We did individual servings in small baking dishes, so 2 eggs per person.
Step 3-Cover with shredded mozzarella and top off with parmigiano.
Step 4-Bake in the oven at 425 degrees for 12 minutes. Top with parsley for some color and extra flavor. The eggs should be runny, if you want firmer eggs, bake for a few extra minutes.
You can add other ingredients to the baking dish, some suggestions-sausage, hot pepper if you want some kick, or even shredded chicken for extra protein.
Serve with grilled or toasted Italian bread, you will need it to zuppare!
