Let it Snow! {Eggs Baked in Tomato Sauce}

I celebrated the New Year in Michigan this year. It started snowing in the afternoon on New Year’s Eve and didn’t stop anytime before I left. White knuckle drive home, though shout out to Indiana, of the three states I drove through they were the only one with plowed roads. I arrived home to more snow, and again it hasn’t stopped. I’ve shoveled three times, you can’t much tell. We measured about 12″ of  snow on our deck.

I tried to get where I needed to go, I got the car out of the garage but could not get much further. Luckily, I was able to get the car back in the garage without having to get a push (good thing since no one was around). Love an excuse to stay home. Bonus, an evening home alone. What to do? Simple meal to warm my belly and a movie of MY choosing of course!

Admittedly, eggs and tomato sauce did not sound like a good match when I first saw this dish. Though once I tried it I became a huge fan. It is so easy, works for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. It is a great comfort meal on a snow chilly day.

Ingredients
Instructions
  1. Preheat over to 400 degrees.
  2. Pout tomato sauce in an ovenproof ramekin
  3. Crack egg into tomato sauce, top with cheese
  4. Season with salt and pepper to taste
  5. Bake in oven for 15 minutes

 

Even better, I usually have all the ingredients I need on hand. Even better on a snowy day when you can’t get out. I made a quick tomato sauce, just cook up a sliced clove of garlic in oil olive for a minute, add a can of tomatoes.  Crushed or diced, try fire roasted for even more flavor.

Use whatever cheese you have on hand. Fresh Parmesan would be great. I used goat cheese. Cook until heated and season to taste. Easy peasy. Cook the eggs to the desired doneness, I like them cooked like that of a poached egg which is just about when the egg white sets. Baguette slices, or really any bread slices, are necessary to get every last drop of tastiness.

No fuss, no mess, and so good that I had it for dinner last night and breakfast today. Oh, and I watched The Way Way Back, two thumbs up.

    Making this tomorrow mornning, thanks. One of my favorite omelets is tomato, fresh basil, fresh mozz and Italian sausage, so I am thinking this is a winner. I had no idea you guys got that much snow. Glad you got home safe. Thanks for posting this, num!

    My son would love it if it would snow that much here. We keep getting teased. It snowed almost all day on Saturday and yet all we were left with was about an inch. That’s no good for sledding! I read this post a couple of weeks ago, but couldn’t reply from my phone. I don’t eat dairy, but for some reason this dish has been on my mind. It reminds me a bit of this appetizer we had at a small Italian restaurant in NYC a number of years ago. It was basically herbed goat cheese in tomato sauce, but it was to die for.
