Fiery Baked Eggs

Fiery Baked Eggs

Serves 4


600g plum tomatoes, halved

4 garlic cloves, crushed

2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil

Salt and black pepper

1 tsp dried oregano

8 eggs

2 tbsp Parmesan, grated

60g Connacht Gold Creamery Butter, at room temperature

A small handful of fresh parsley, chopped

1 baguette, sliced into eight pieces


1 Preheat the oven to 200˚C/180˚C fan/gas mark 6. Toss the tomatoes and half of the garlic with the oil and season well with salt and pepper. Arrange the tomatoes, cut-side up, on a baking tray and roast for 15 minutes until soft. Flip the tomatoes and roast for another 10 minutes.

2 Transfer the tomatoes and garlic to a blender and add the oregano. Purée until smooth and strain to remove any lumps.

3 Place four gratin dishes on a baking tray and pour in the sauce. Crack two eggs into each dish and season with salt and pepper.

4 Sprinkle the Parmesan over the eggs and bake for 15 minutes until the whites are just set.

5 Mash the remaining garlic with the butter and parsley. Spread over one side of the baguette slices. Add to a baking tray, buttered-side up, and bake for 10 minutes.

6 Serve the eggs warm with the garlic bread slices for dipping.
