Eggs on the plate are one of the most traditional dishes of Spanish gastronomy. Normally, they are prepared in a pan, but we can also do it in the oven without losing flavor or texture. Likewise, the ingredients may vary depending on the region. In this case, we will make baked eggs with Serrano ham, which can be substituted for sweet ham, chorizo or bacon. Of course, what should not be missing is the tomato, the peas and, of course, the egg, since they are the basic ingredients of the recipe.
If you like strong flavors, in addition to the mentioned ingredients you can add more vegetables and make a kind of ratatouille or vegetable fry. Either way it will be delicious because it is a very complete dish, as well as fast. Stay in Free Recipes and discover with us how to bake baked eggs.

How to make Baked Eggs in the oven:
Preheat the oven to 200 ºC with heat up and down and place the tray in the middle. Heat water in a saucepan with a little salt and, when it starts to boil, add the peas to cook them. Leave them until they are well cooked. When done, drain and set aside.
Trick: You can use canned peas already cooked, frozen, or fresh.
Cut the ham into small cubes or in strips. Remember that you can substitute this ingredient for bacon, sweet ham or chorizo.
To bake the eggs in the oven, we recommend using individual clay pots. Thus, at the base put the fried tomato sauce covering the entire bottom and above distribute the cooked peass. The amount of peas is to taste. You can also make a sauce with tomato and onion to cover the base.
Trick: For a healthier option, opt for crushed natural tomato.
Distribute the ham in the casseroles and add a little salt and pepper, but without overdoing it because the ham is already salty.
Lay an egg in each casserole and on top of all the ingredients. Season the egg with a little salt if you like it a bit salty. You can put a little more ham on top.
Cook the eggs in the oven for 6-8 minutes or until the eggs are done. Once they’re done, take out the casseroles and serve right away. As you can see, it is a quick and complete dish that is good for a quick dinner.
