Baked Eggs with Feta & Dill

 

Preheat oven to 400°

An ideal brunch dish, served with a spinach and orange salad.

Ingredients:


olive oil

1 ½ cups coarsely chopped plum tomatoes (2-3)

2 green onions, thinly sliced

pinches of salt


1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese

2 Tbsp chopped dill


4 eggs

black pepper

dill sprigs (optional)

Serves 4

Method:


Lightly oil 4 custard cups.


Heat 1 tsp or so of oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Add tomatoes and stir just until they begin to soften, about 1-2 minutes.

Stir in green onions and salt.


Fill bottom of custard cups with tomato mixture. Sprinkle feta and dill overtop. Use a spoon to create a hollow in the mixture.


Carefully crack one egg into each hollow. Sprinkle with salt + pepper. Place a small sprig of dill on the yolk.


Bake just until eggs are set, about 15 minutes for runny eggs.


Serve with warm, buttered toast.
