Italian Baked Eggs Recipe

It’s Holy Week and as expected we are still trapped in our own homes because of community quarantine. Normally, I would take a break during these days but we are on staycation for the longest time already so bawasan ko na lang backlog ko. Let me share one easy egg recipe. 

In one of my previous posts, I mentioned that I am starting to explore the flavors of Italy and one of my favorite Italian restaurants is Amici. What I like about Italian cuisine is, they only use few ingredients so their dish is very simple but flavorful. Archestratus said, “Flavours should not be masked by spices, herbs or other seasonings.”. Italian cooks are after the quality of the ingredients and not the quantity. 

Anyway, last week I prepared “Italian Baked Eggs” for our breakfast. I started cooking this way back in 2011 but this time, I tried a new recipe so I don’t have to saute any ingredients. I found Jamie Oliver's recipe, I just replaced some ingredients because I don’t have fresh cherry tomatoes and basil. I used all my leftover mozzarella cheese. 

Italian Baked Eggs 

4 large eggs 
Mozzarella Cheese 

1. Preheat my oven to 250C (full whack) 
2. Lightly grease my baking dish with olive oil. 
3. Add eggs. 
4. Slice my canned cherry tomatoes and put them around the eggs. 
5. Place my mozzarella cheese cubes. 
6. Sprinkle salt, cracked pepper and dried basil. 
7. Drizzle some olive oil. 
8. Bake in the oven for 7 to 10 minutes. 
9. Serve

My mistake is, I just turned off the oven after 10 minutes and I did not remove the baking dish from the oven. My two boys were still sleeping pa kasi so ending, naovercooked yung eggs but still we finished this dish pa rin. The yolk should be runny and not like this.
