Baked Eggs

These days, whenever I have to cook, there is just one thought running through my head..."will the boys eat this without cribbing". I have to keep looking for new ways to satisfy their taste buds. Thank God for the Internet. For example, when the boys didn't want to eat "normal dinner", but wanted something with eggs, I found this wonderful recipe from this amazing blog. It is actually a breakfast dish, but I made it for dinner anyways, and served it with buttered brown bread. The kids just loved it!!!

  • Eggs: 3
  • Tomatoes: 2 chopped
  • Onion small: 1 chopped
  • Turmeric Powder: a pinch
  • Salt: as per taste
  • Oil
  • Butter: for spreading on the baking dish
  • Coriander leaves for garnishing
  1. Pre-heat the oven to 180C/350F
  2. Heat the oil.
  3. Add the onions and saute till translucent.
  4. Then add the chopped tomatoes.
  5. Mix in the salt and the turmeric powder.
  6. Stir for 7 to 10 minutes on medium heat. The tomatoes should not lose their shape.
  7. Smear butter all over the baking dish.
  8. Pour the tomato mixture into the dish.
  9. Gently crack open the eggs, one by one, on the tomato base.
  10. Place it in the oven for 20 -25 minutes for a cooked yolk and 15-20 minutes for a softer yolk.
  11. Garnish with coriander leaves.
