This isn't your typical egg bake! I serve this robust casserole of eggs, Italian sausage and fire-roasted tomatoes in bowls with warm, crusty rolls spread with butter. —Shelly Bevington-Fisher, Hermiston, Oregon

Ingredients

  • 1 pound Johnsonville® Ground Mild Italian sausage
  • 1 jar (24 ounces) fire-roasted tomato and garlic pasta sauce
  • 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) fire-roasted diced tomatoes, drained
  • 3/4 cup part-skim ricotta cheese
  • 8 large eggs
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh basil
  • 1 French bread demi-baguette (4 ounces), cut into 1-inch slices
  • 1/4 cup butter, softened

Directions

Preheat oven to 350°. In a large skillet over medium heat, cook sausage, crumbling meat, until no longer pink, 3-4 minutes; drain. Stir in pasta sauce and tomatoes. Transfer to a 13x9-in. baking dish.
Dollop ricotta cheese on top of meat mixture. Gently break an egg into a small bowl; slip egg onto ricotta. Repeat with remaining eggs. Sprinkle with salt, pepper and Parmesan cheese.
Bake until egg whites are completely set and yolks have begun to thicken but are not hard, 30-35 minutes. Remove from oven; sprinkle with basil.
Meanwhile, spread bread slices with butter; place on an ungreased baking sheet. Preheat broiler. Broil 3-4 in. from heat until golden brown, 1-2 minutes on each side. Serve immediately with baked eggs. Yield: 8 servings.

"This is such a unique dish. We are breakfast food lovers so having this for dinner was a special treat. Very easy to make. Served with hash browns. Thank you Shelly (a fellow Oregonian!!!)."

"This looked so good that even tho there is just me, I wanted to try it out. I reduced it down to just 1/4 of the recipe, and it was perfect... I used a six inch wide, 2 inch deep compote dish, and reduced the baking time down to 25 minutes."
