I really DO cook! • Baked Eggs in Tomato-Parmesan Sauce

This is one of my favourite, easy, cheap go-to meals. It's tasty, quick and freezes really well. Pair it with a salad and some crusty bread, and you've got a meal that will fill you up and keep you going.

Prep: 15 minutes
Total: 40 minutes

296 cal./serving

Serves 4 (or 6, depending on your ramekin/ovenproof bowl size)
  • 1 T. olive oil
  • 4 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
  • 1 teaspoon crushed dried rosemary
  • 2 cans (15 ounces each) diced tomatoes in juice — the ones with Italian spices work really well in this dish
  • 1 can (15 ounces) crushed tomatoes
  • 1/4 c. grated Parmesan
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 8 large eggs


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Set four 12-ounce ovenproof bowls or ramekins on a large rimmed baking sheet.
  2. In a large saucepan, heat oil over medium. Add garlic and rosemary; cook, stirring, until garlic is golden, about 2 minutes. Add diced tomatoes (with juice), crushed tomatoes, and 2 tablespoons Parmesan; bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer, and cook, stirring occasionally, until slightly thickened, 2 to 4 minutes. Season tomato sauce with salt and pepper.
  3. Divide tomato sauce among bowls, reserving 1 cup. Crack 2 eggs into each bowl. Dividing evenly, top with reserved sauce and 2 tablespoons Parmesan. Bake until egg whites are just opaque (yolks should still be soft), 24 to 28 minutes, rotating sheet halfway through.
