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.
1 baguette, halved and sliced lengthwise
1½ tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
4 ounces low-moisture mozzarella, sliced into 8 pieces
12 ounces hot Italian turkey sausage, casings removed
1½ cups chopped yellow onion
3 garlic cloves, chopped
1 28-ounce can crushed tomatoes
1½ teaspoons fresh oregano, plus more for serving
¾ teaspoon kosher salt
4 large eggs
¼ teaspoon black pepper

How to Make It
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.
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.
Reduce oven temperature to 375°F.
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.
