Baked Eggs in Tomato Sauce with Kale

From:, April 2018

You can make these three-ingredient tomato-simmered eggs with things you probably already have on hand in your freezer and pantry. To make these baked eggs more like eggs in purgatory, look for a spicy tomato sauce and don't forget some whole-wheat bread for dipping.

  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Heat oil in a 10-inch cast-iron skillet or nonstick ovenproof skillet over medium heat. Add kale, season with ¼ teaspoon salt and ⅛ teaspoon pepper, and sauté for 2 minutes. Stir in marinara (or tomato) sauce and bring to a simmer.
  3. Make 8 wells in the sauce with the back of a spoon and carefully crack an egg into each well. Season the eggs with the remaining ¼ teaspoon salt and ⅛ teaspoon pepper.
  4. Transfer the pan to the oven and bake until the egg whites are set and the yolks are still soft, about 20 minutes.

Super easy and delicious! I will definitely make this again, and experiment with different tomato sauces for variety. Perfect for "Meatless Monday" or for a vegetarian diet.
