About This Recipe
Eggs are baked on bed of marinara sauce with cheese, salt, black pepper and basil leaves to make these delicious Italian Baked Eggs. They are quite unique from the regular breakfast recipes and comes together in under 15 minutes.
It is prepared in small ramekins for individual servings, but you can make it in a bigger baking dish as well.
Serve it for breakfast with a toast or for a light brunch or lunch with a refreshing salad on the side during the weekdays.
Eggs – Use any eggs that are regularly used at home – white, brown or organic.
Marinara Sauce – You can make marinara sauce at home or use a store bought one. I prefer to use my homemade marinara sauce, as it is fresh, prepared with high quality ingredients and is free of preservatives.
Cheese – I have used a combination of cheddar and parmesan cheese to make it extra cheesy. You can even use processed cheese, if the above two are not easily available.
Basil Leaves – Adds a refreshing flavour with a pop of green.
Salt & Pepper – Adjust according to your taste!
Serve Italian Baked Eggs with a side of crisp toast or a crusty baguette. You can also serve a refreshing salad on the side for brunch or light lunch.
Make it fresh, as it hardly takes 15 minutes of your time. I do not recommend to store it, as cooked eggs does not taste great after some time.
