Just a recipe today. But ‘WOW’ what a pretty, fantastic, and super delicious recipe! I love this little recipe. Hope you like it too!
Best of all it is a quick and easy meal for those evenings when time is short!
Today’s recipe is as delicious as it is quick and easy.
This recipe is also very budget friendly too; coming in at under $5.00 for 2 people.
I have eaten this dish for breakfast, for dinner, and ate the left-overs for lunch. This recipe can be the main entrée or a side dish.
This is just one delicious, quick & easy, and very versatile dish! What else can we ask for?
I first saw this recipe last summer. There must be a dozen or using these or similar ingredients. Some recipes used tomato sauce some used regular tomatoes. There were plain recipes and fancy ones. There were some with a few ingredients and some with many, many ingredients.
You know me though. I am lazy and I prefer recipes with just a few ingredients. So I pared it down to just six ingredients not counting salt and pepper.
This is a luscious meal. It is also quick and easy and oh so very, very sweet. With some crusty bread and butter this is a very filling dish.
The recipe below can be doubled and tripled to serve more people.
I hope you like it as much as I do.
This is what you will need for about 2 people:
2 – 3 cups sweet cherry tomatoes halved
NOTE: I used both red and yellow tomatoes. You can use just read or yellow.
¼ cup grated Parmesan
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons fresh basil leaves
1 garlic clove pressed – Optional
3-4 eggs, at room temperature
Salt and pepper to taste
This Is What You Do
Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
Arrange the halved tomatoes in a baking dish.
Heat the tomatoes for 12 minutes.
Sprinkle the Parmesan over the tomatoes and drizzle on the olive oil. Scatter the basil over the tomatoes and season with the salt and pepper.
If using, stir the garlic into the mixture.
Crack the eggs over the tomatoes.
Return the dish to the oven and bake for 10-15 minutes or until the egg whites have set and the yolks are still soft.
Sprinkle with more with salt and pepper if needed. Sprinkle the remaining basil too.
If the cheese has melted you may want to sprinkle more cheese on top too. Or, put out a dish with cheese for folk to sprinkle as much cheese as they wish.
Serve with some crusty bread and butter.
