Rustic Bruschetta Baked Eggs for One

Rustic Bruschetta aked Eggs for One 2(EAS)by EA Stewart, MBA, RD

This recipe was inspired by an earlier version I made with some leftover bruschetta in my fridge. It turned out to be delicious, so I decided to whip up a batch of bruschetta with some jarred tomatoes in my pantry, garlic olive oil, and Italian seasoning. Guess what? It turned out to be equally delicious, and super nutritious as well. As a bonus, you “bake” the egg in the microwave, which makes this a perfect breakfast for a busy weekday morning!

Ingredients

*Bruschetta*

1 28-ounce jar, can or box of tomatoes, drained

2 tablespoons garlic flavored extra virgin olive oil {i.e. [California Ranch Garlic Oil|http://astore.amazon.com/wwweastewartc-20/detail/B00JL61KR6]}

2 teaspoons dried Italian Seasoning

1/8 teaspoon fine sea salt, or to taste

Fresh ground black pepper to taste

*Bruschetta Baked Eggs*

1/2 cup bruschetta

1 large egg

1 tablespoon shredded mozzarella cheese

1 tablespoon shredded Parmesan cheese

Optional, Italian seasoning and ground black pepper for garnish

Instructions

To make the bruschetta, heat olive oil in a medium size pan over medium heat, and add tomatoes. Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper, and stir well to combine. Continue stirring for 1 to 2 minutes, then remove tomato mixture to a bowl.

Place 1/2 cup bruschetta in a Ramekin,and crack egg on top of the bruschetta. Cook in the microwave, on high power, for 2 minutes, then top with mozzarella and Parmesan cheeses, and cook for ~2 more minutes*, or until desired doneness. *After cooking for the first 2 minutes, you may want to check your microwave every 30 seconds, as microwave cooking times will vary.

Sprinkle baked egg with Italian seasoning and ground black pepper if desired, and serve while warm.
