    Baked eggs with tomatoes & feta

    • Preparation time: 10 minutes
    • Cooking time: 20 minutes

    Serves: 2

    Ingredients

    2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
    2 garlic cloves, sliced
    1 red pepper, deseeded and sliced
    1 tsp chopped oregano leaves
    400g can Mutti Polpa Finely Chopped Tomatoes
    10 pitted kalamata olives, torn in half
    Pinch caster sugar
    4 medium British Blacktail Free Range Eggs
    40g feta, crumbled

    Method

    1. Preheat the oven to 200 ̊C, gas mark 6. Heat the oil in a large frying or sauté pan over a medium heat and fry the garlic and pepper for 2 minutes. Stir in the oregano, chopped tomatoes, olives and sugar. Season, bring to a simmer and cook for 10 minutes.

    2. Take the pan off the heat. With a spoon, make 4 rough indents in the tomato sauce (don’t worry if they don’t hold very well). Crack an egg into each indent, sprinkle over the feta and grind over a little black pepper. Transfer the pan to the oven and bake for 6-8 minutes or until the egg whites are just set and the yolks still a little soft.

    3. Remove from the oven and allow to stand for a couple of minutes before serving with some crusty bread, if liked.

    Cook’s tip

    Adding a pinch of sugar to the sauce helps to balance the acidity in the tomatoes. Alternatively, you could use a dash of honey or maple syrup.
