Baked eggs are my favorite. I have tried this recipe so many times and it has never failed me. It is perfect for breakfast or for brunch…

The key for this recipe is to get the marinara sauce perfect. It has to be acidic and sweet at the same time. My recipe for marinara sauce is perfect and it has a little kick from the chili flakes as well. And the topping of the parmesan cheese which turns little crispy when baked is just delicious. If you don’t have parmesan cheese you can use cheddar cheese as well..

Make sure you have few slices of toasted buttered bread to dip into that eggy tomato juice. And the baking time depends on you, if you really want the eggs to be runny then 10 mins is perfect, for soft boiled kind of eggs 12 mins is best, for a fully cooked egg, bake it for 15 mins or more..

And for the marinara sauce use the best quality tomatoes you can afford, I chose the Family Farmed Redpack Tomatoes , which worked great for me. You can use the Redpack Tomatoes with basil, garlic and oregano. It adds more flavor to the recipe. Otherwise, you can use the Redpack Crushed Tomatoes like I did.

The reason why I use Redpack Tomatoes is because their quality tomatoes come from family farms. Redpack also provides peace of mind to their consumers by being Non-GMO project verified as well as having the safest packaging by using non-BPA/BPS lined cans.  Above all the taste is what matters, I really enjoyed the fresh taste of these tomatoes a lot. Hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turns out for you.
