Baked Eggs in Yellow Tomato Sauce with Mixed Herbs and Goat Cheese

Baked Eggs in Yellow Tomato Sauce with Mixed Herbs and Goat Cheese ~ the eggs are baked in a quick tomato sauce made with yellow tomatoes.  The recipe is below,  but you hardly need it.  Just a quick rough chop, 10 minutes of cooking, and then it gets blended smooth.  You only need a little salt and a clove of garlic to accent the fresh tomato flavor.

I ladled some sauce in the bottom of a small baking pan and put it in the oven.  I turned the oven to 375 and by the time it got to temperature, the sauce was spurting and spitting.

Take three eggs and pre-crack them into little cups so you can gently lay them in the hot sauce.  Spoon some goat cheese around the eggs, sprinkle with salt and pepper and pop back in the oven for about 15 minutes.

After you take them out, scatter your favorite fresh herbs over the eggs and serve hot, with crusty bread.

For the unusual yellow tomato sauce I use pretty heirloom tomatoes.  Any variety will do, but I love this bright yellow color.

Simply give them a rough chop and puree them up.  I kept it simple with a little extra virgin olive oil and garlic.  The flavor of the fabulous tomatoes really shines through.

    I LOVE fresh tomatoes and breakfast is my favorite meal to cook. I love making a big brunch on Sundays. I’m going to try this will a hash brown ‘crust’ on the bottom and make it like a tart or pie.

    I have whole home-canned tomatoes from last summer and this is just the type of recipe I was looking for. I’m thrilled! I’m going to make this tonight. Thank you for the simple sauce recipe, sounds like it will really highlight the bright flavor of the tomatoes. It looks amazing.

        Over the last few years I’ve made this dish quite a few times. It’s a favorite. I recently made it as an appetizer along with a chickpea flour and olive flat bread. It was a big hit. Just wanted to let you know. :)

          Thanks soooo much Aidann — this is a real ‘sleeper’ of a recipe, I don’t think it gets too much attention, and I so appreciate your feedback. Your bread sounds fantastic, I’d love to try that!

    This looks really delicious! Is there a “print” button somewhere that I’m not seeing? Would love to put this in my recipe book to try sometime.

    This totally rocks. I can appreciate tomatoes and eggs. It has never occurred to me to use yellow tomatoes. This is a perfect partner to the yellow yolks. I love it!

    The photos really are very nice too.
