Baked Eggs With Goat Cheese And Tomato Sauce
Have you ever gone to a restaurant and tried a dish that stayed with you? The flavors, the aroma, the texture.. I had this experience a few weeks ago and ran home to recreate it. This delicious dish consists on baked eggs in a homemade tomato sauce and creamy goat cheese. I love eating it by the spoonful. It feels creamy, tangy and so decadent. One cannot imagine it’s an egg dish.
Making this dish is super simple. No special tools or long hours cooking needed. That’s why it’s perfect for a quick brunch or dinner. Serve it alongside a crusty bread and get ready to tantalize your palate with an amazing array of flavors and textures. The tomato sauce really brings everything together.
You can choose to make it a big skillet for company or serve it in individual portions. If you loved the Eggs En Cocotte I made a few months ago, you will fall in love with these Baked Eggs With Goat Cheese And Tomato Sauce. It’s kind of a milder Shakshuka.
If you’ve been following me on Instagram. You may have noticed that I’ve been traveling New England during the summer. Right now I am in Vermont and I am using their local items to prepare this dish. Last week I went to the Farmer’s Market and found a lady selling these beautiful colored eggs and immediately bought a dozen. Upon cracking them, I noticed that the yolks had an intense almost orange color and since I wanted to re-create a recipe that I ate previously in a restaurant, it was a match made in heaven.
