Italian Baked Sausage and Eggs
Brimming with tomatoes and basil, this recipe tastes like summer - and brings the heat for those who like spiciness. And since you can make your own fire-roasted tomatoes and ricotta for this recipe, it also encourages greater experimentation in the kitchen.

  1. Preheat oven to 350°. In a large skillet over medium heat, cook sausage, crumbling meat, until no longer pink, 3-4 minutes; drain. Stir in pasta sauce and tomatoes. Transfer to a 13x9-in. baking dish.
  2. Dollop ricotta cheese on top of meat mixture. Gently break an egg into a small bowl; slip egg onto meat mixture between dollops of ricotta. Repeat with remaining eggs. Sprinkle with salt, pepper and Parmesan cheese.
  3. Bake until egg whites are completely set and yolks have begun to thicken but are not hard, 30-35 minutes. Remove from oven; sprinkle with basil.
  4. Meanwhile, spread bread slices with butter; place on an ungreased baking sheet. Preheat broiler. Broil 3-4 in. from heat until golden brown, 1-2 minutes on each side. Serve immediately with baked eggs.
