Consider a baked egg dish like this one for a hearty brunch entree that’s ready in 25 minutes. After baking toasting some mozzarella over a crusty baguette, you’ll brown turkey sausage in a skillet, then sauté onion and garlic. That creates a deep, flavorful base for the tomato sauce (a can of crushed tomatoes with fresh oregano). Simmer the sauce a bit, then crack four eggs directly over the sauce and bake until set. That last step, throwing the whole pan in a warm oven, takes just under 10 minutes, which leaves the perfect amount of time to pour coffee or orange juice and set the table.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 400°F. Place the baguette slices on a baking sheet; brush with the oil and top each with 2 pieces of the mozzarella. Bake until the cheese is bubbly and light golden brown, about 12 minutes.

Step 2

Meanwhile, heat a large ovenproof nonstick skillet over medium-high. Add the sausage and cook, stirring and breaking 
it apart with a wooden spoon, until almost cooked through, 5 minutes. Add the onion and garlic and cook, stirring, until the onion is translucent, about 3 minutes. Stir in the tomatoes, oregano, and salt. Bring to a simmer and cook, 
stirring occasionally, until slightly thickened, about 3 minutes.

Step 3

Reduce oven temperature to 375°F.

Step 4

Break the eggs into the sauce, leaving space between them. Sprinkle with the pepper. Transfer to oven and bake until the whites are set and the yolks are still soft, 7 to 9 minutes. Top with oregano. Serve in bowls with the mozzarella toast.
