Baked Eggs in Tomato-Parmesan Sauce


Serve these baked eggs with crusty bread, or try them with Garlic Bread.

  • Servings: 4

Source: Everyday Food, April 2009


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 4 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
  • 1 teaspoon crushed dried rosemary
  • 2 cans (15 ounces each) diced tomatoes in juice
  • 1 can (15 ounces) crushed tomatoes
  • 1/4 cup 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.

Cook's Notes

A rimmed baking sheet helps you transfer the baking dishes in and out of the oven.

    I'm a busy chef and when I get off I'm hungry and tired. I put it in the oven while I showered the "kitchen" smells off and curled up with this great dish! Love this recipe.

    I love this recipe for a light lunch or breakfast. You can also add all kinds of things to the tomato mixture to change it up. I like to add black beans and cilantro or feta and spinach instead of the rosemary and parm.

    I loved this, and my 2 year old daughter ate it too! I used fire roasted diced tomatoes which gave it great flavor. I served for dinner with pesto pasta and salad...but next time would go with crusty bread to dip. Agree, 25 minutes in my oven set the yolks a bit too much.

    This was great! Just keep a careful eye on it and don't let the eggs over cook!
