This is something I thought was going to be gross. I was in need of a good breakfast and I was lacking in a lot of ingredients so, Italian Baked Eggs it was. Boy am I glad I made this. I love this recipe. I think hot sausage really adds to the dish, which would probably be un-filling and bland without it.
I had varying sized jars of spaghetti sauce, and various styles of sauce. The sauce I used for this was a roasted sauce with big chunks of veggies and basil.
Cook up some nice sausage patties. Spicy sausage really adds to the flavor!
It’s looking great already!
Mozzarella and Parmesan would probably both work great on this. We were out of Parmesan so mozzarella only was.
It is pretty once cooked. We prefer our eggs hard and the yolks were just cooked through.
Italian Baked Eggs
- 4 eggs
- 2 cups of spaghetti or marinara sauce
- Hot Italian sausage
- 1 cup mozzarella cheese
- Salt and Pepper (to taste)
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Cook the sausage fully. In four soufflé dishes spoon ½ a cup of spaghetti sauce. To the sauce add a piece of sausage, one egg and salt and pepper. Sprinkle mozzarella over the top. Place in oven for 15 minutes, or less if a runnier yolk is preferred. Remove from oven and sprinkle fresh basil over the top. Enjoy!
