OK...this IS a great, easy dish, TRUE! Would definately make again too! HOWEVER, after even 20 minutes whites were not baked enough for me! Under griller for additional 5 - 8 minutes this plate did see! I also like yolks hard, hubby soft too! So cracked yolk on mine when it started to settle too! Think 3 tomatoes could have been two, Also done with say 100 grams of feta, but maybe is personal taste, TRUE! I did make them in bowls separately, Was wondering if I put them in Pyrex casserole this next time...we'll see! THANKS! Hubby also added splash of worchester sauce too! :)
made these baked eggs on Sunday for breakfast. I liked them but DH wasn't fond of them. I think I could have baked them a little longer, I thought the whites were done but discovered in some of the "cracks" they were not cooked. I cooked four in a pie plate and I believe they would have been better done separately in bowls as instructed. Thanks for posting.
