baked eggs with salsa – perfect brunch food


Baked eggs are simple to make and you can add just about anything to the dish that suits your fancy. Or for something super duper easy chop up fresh tomatoes, add eggs, and pop into the oven. There are oodles of baked egg recipes out there and I like mine with a bit of heat and spice. My recipe is an adaptation of the Arabic dish called shakshuka.

Preparation time 10mins
Cooking time 30mins


Step 1

Preheat oven to 375f (190c). Add a splash of olive oil to each dish. Add sausage meat and scatter sliced garlic over meat. Add tomatoes and a generous portion of salsa sauce to cover the meat. Make a slight indention in the middle and crack an egg into it. Place cheese curds throughout the dish. Move to oven and bake 20 minutes or until the egg is cooked to your liking. Remove from oven and allow to cool somewhat before serving. Serve with toasted bread to help mop up the juices.

The Culinary Chase’s Note: Use feta cheese instead of cheese curds and cut up chunks of chorizo sausage in lieu of sausage meat. About 5 minutes before cooking time has ended, turn on broiler to give the cheese a golden brown look. Enjoy!
