Back on Track: Adding the Burpees

Baked Eggs

These are easily prepared the night before and baked in the morning. Convert to an easy brunch dish by simply layering the ingredients in a large dish and baking for 15 to 20 minutes.

If you’re making these to eat straight away, preheat the oven to 180°C.


  • 1 tbsp soft butter
  • 4 tbsp tomato passata
  • 2 free range eggs
  • a pinch of sea salt
  • a pinch of cracked black pepper
  • 2 tbsp crème fraîche
  • 2 tbsp cheese


Grease two ramekins or oven-proof teacups, glasses or jars with butter.

Add 2 tablespoons of filling to each ramekin then crack in an egg, sprinkle on salt and pepper, dollop a tablespoon of crème fraîche on each and sprinkle on cheese, if using. Place on a baking sheet.

The eggs can be baked straight away or prepared in advance, stored in fridge overnight and baked first thing in morning.
