Portuguese Baked Eggs step by step

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F..
  2. Heat some oil in a pan and add the sliced bell peppers and onions to it. Sauté till they turn golden brown..
  3. Next add tomatoes, garlic, spinach and jalapeños to the pan and sauté till all the vegetables have reduced. (I was running short on jalapeños so I just used chilli instead).
  4. After the vegetables have reduced, add basil, oregano and paprika to them. You may season the vegetables with pepper too. Add salt to taste..
  5. Separate the jalapeños from the vegetable-mix..
  6. I used a pie plate here but a skillet works too. Spray Pam over the pie plate/skillet..
  7. Transfer the vegetable-mix to the plate and form 6 tiny wells with the help of a scoop or a spoon. In each well add a dollop of ricotta and an egg..
  8. Decorate as you would like to. I placed a few slices of tomato..
  9. Sprinkle salt and pepper over each egg-well and cover the entire plate with a generous layer of grated Parmesan..
  10. Bake for 20-22 minutes for a little runny yolks and about 40 minutes for well-done eggs and a golden-crisp layer of Parmesan cheese, just the way I like it! Serve hot with some bread, toasted or not as you would like..
