Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  • Heat water in a kettle or pot until it begins to steam; remove from heat. Pour 1 cup steaming water into the bottom of a casserole dish.

  • Spoon 1/4 cup marinara sauce into each ramekin. Crack 1 egg over marinara in each ramekin. Arrange ramekins in the water in the casserole dish. Fill casserole dish with enough water to reach the midpoint of each ramekin.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until yolks are firm, about 25 minutes.

Cook's Notes:

The number of servings depends on the number of ramekins you have available and the amount of space in your baking dish. I think 4 is reasonable without overcrowding. I do not know if this would work with more than one baking dish full of ramekins at a time or how this might impact overall cook time.

For less firm eggs, cook for only 15 minutes.
