How To Make italian baked eggs

  • 1
    Preheat oven to 425°F. Light coat bottom and sides of 2 oven-safe ramekins with nonstick spray.
  • 2
    Spoon marinara sauce in the bottom of each ramekin. Top with eggs (and you can add 1 or 2 eggs to each ramekin, as desired). Gently pour cream over the eggs. Sprinkle the Mozzarella and Parmesan on top.
  • 3
    Place ramekins in oven and let back about 10 minutes. Yolks will be the consistency of "over easy" fried eggs, but you can leave the ramekins in the oven for a few more minutes or until yolks are cooked harder.
  • 4
    Remove from oven, garnish with the chopped basil, and serve immediately.
