Yields: 4 servings
  • 1 package Maverick Mix® tomatoes (1 pound), halved or quartered depending on size
  • 1 garlic clove, thinly sliced
  • 1 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves, oregano, or marjoram
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Salt and pepper
  • Chili flakes (optional)
  • 4 eggs
  • 4 slices of crusty bread
  1. Preheat oven to 450F.
  2. Combine tomatoes, garlic, herbs, olive oil, ¼ teaspoon each of salt, pepper, and chili flakes (if using) in a baking dish (1 to 2 quarts in size).
  3. Bake for 10 minutes until tomatoes are soft (or up to 25 minutes if you have the time and you want more of a concentrated tomato sauce).
  4. With a wooden spoon, make 4 small wells in the tomatoes. Crack an egg into each well and sprinkle salt, pepper, and chili pepper (if using) atop the eggs.
  5. Bake until the yolks are set to your liking, about 8 to 10 minutes.
  6. Let rest 5 minutes.
  7. Serve in individual bowls with bread to soak up the savory juices.
