Baked egg dishes are an easy menu addition—preparation is as simple as ladling sauce into a dish and adding cracked eggs. They also allow for endless creativity using existing inventory items.
Veg It Up
Enrich the flavor and texture of your tomato sauce with hearty chunks of vegetables such as eggplant, zucchini or summer squash, mushrooms or bell peppers.
Create a unique, flavorful and visually arresting green sauce using tomatillos, roasted poblano peppers or a purée of spinach.
Say “Yes” to Cheese and Cream
Allow your guests to indulge in eggs baked in a rich mushroom cream or a sauce laced with soft or semi-soft cheese such as Gouda, Brie, Muenster or raclette.
Add a Protein
Crumbles, pinches or thin slices of sausage are a natural addition to baked egg dishes. Small amounts of spicy andouille, chorizo or linguiça can provide a potent flavor punch.
