Chilli Baked Eggs

When I first suggested cooking this dish when on a canal boat with friends they seemed horrified. However once they'd tried it they were convinced that it was a good idea. Be brave and give it a go, it's really just oven poached eggs in a sauce.


  • 2 tbsp sunflower oil

  • 1 onion, finely chopped

  • 125g mushrooms, thinly sliced

  • 2 tins of chopped tomatoes

  • 1 chilli pepper, finely chopped

  • 4 eggs

  • 125g grated cheese



  1. Preheat the oven to 160 degrees

  2. Fry the onion and mushrooms in a saucepan with the oil until the onion starts to soften.

  3. Add the tinned tomatoes and chilli pepper and simmer for 10 minutes.

  4. Pour the mixture into an ovenproof dish.

  5. Break the 4 eggs onto the mixture, spacing them out evenly in the pan.

  6. Cover with grated cheese.

  7. Bake in the oven for 40 minutes.

  8. Serve with crusty bread or baked potatoes.
