- 1/2 tbsp Rice Bran Oil (or Olive Oil)
- 1 x 400g can of Chopped Tomatoes

Baked Eggs Ham & Tomato Recipe
Preheat your oven to 190°C/Fan 180°C & lightly grease the top few centimetres of 2 small serving bowls.
Over a medium heat, fry the garlic in a little oil in a heavy bottomed saucepan for a minute then add the chopped tomatoes. (Careful, it will likely splutter.)
Add the basil, sugar and salt & pepper to taste. Then simmer for about 10-15 minutes to reduce it down.
Meanwhile, chop your ham into small pieces and place into two small serving bowls.
When the tomatoes are at your preferred consistency, (I like mine quite thick) pour into the serving bowls and mix with the ham.
Carefully crack an egg onto the top of each bowl and sprinkle with a little salt & pepper.
Pop into the oven on a baking tray for about 15 minutes or until the egg white is cooked but the yolk is still runny.
Serve immediately with buttered ‘soldiers’. Or for a gluten free option, try cooked asparagus wrapped in parma ham or prosciutto.
There you have it! A simple, tasty & healthy breakfast that will definitely tide you over until lunch! Baked Eggs Ham & Tomato is definitely one of my faves. You could even change it up a little and use bacon instead of ham.
I hope you enjoyed the post my lovelies, until next time.
