Breakfast : Italian Tangy Egg

This is again gonna be a quick breakfast recipe for egg lovers. It can be microwaved or baked and we are gonna make a single serving dish. It is pretty fancy looking dish and will be perfect if you wanna serve it to guests or just amuse your family or in the matter of fact your own self. This recipe is one of Gemma’s Bigger bolder baking recipe, I just love her cooking and thought of sharing my own version of it.

First we need marinara sauce, so here we go

Ingredients –

  • Tomato – 1 big and juicy one, chop it finely
  • Onion – 1 medium size , finely chopped
  • Garlic – 4 to 5 cloves , finely chopped
  • Egg – 1
  • Oregano – 1/4 tbs
  • Chili flakes – 1/4 tbs
  • Black pepper – 1/8 tbs
  • Olive oil – 2 tbs
  • Cheddar cheese

Look how beautiful it looks and it smells great. Too bad I don’t eat egg so I am gonna let my husband enjoy that. Let me know how did that turn out for you. 🙂

Note – You can either bake it or microwave it. For baking put it in 180°C for about 15 mins. In my case I microwaved it. Adjust the timings based on how you like your eggs.
