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.

So simple why change anything? These were as good as they sounded and looked like the picture without the garnish. I only made two and used an 8 x 8 dish to hold the ramekins. I think I needed 3 1/2 cups of hot water. I sprayed the ramekins and 20 minutes baking produced my ideal eggs the whites were just done the yolk had started to film over and was still runny. The pasta sauce had thickened a little which was good too. Not sure if mine were compliant served over orzo but they were delicious. Thanks! Read More

Can it get any easier than this?! So so good of course depending on the quality of sauce you use (I used Mezzetta Napa Valley Homestyle Marinara). I love that you can stick these in the oven and not worry about them while you prepare other foods. The only suggestion I have is to spray the inside of the ramekins with cooking spray as the sides of the egg tends to stick. Thanks for the great recipe SheLovesPaleo! Read More
