In Search of Inspiration

Lately, I have been feeling very uninspired to cook, to do much of I thought maybe I need something to "jump start" my excitement. I have been meaning to actually start writing in here for a is the day. I am going to write my first here it is. Enjoy and try not to drool on your keyboard :)

So I have been craving stewed tomatoes with baked eggs for a while now.....

I decided that I would go all out and get the Organic Farm Fresh Brown Eggs. Brown eggs do taste better, but they are also more expensive so i rarely buy them, but i figured since the Eggs are the "star" of this dish, might as well.

( little pretties.....destined to be sacrificed for my baked eggs ;P)

You can start with tomatoes from scratch and stew them, but it was late and I was getting hungry, so I used the can stuff :O I started with 2 cans of stewed tomatoes (the basil, garlic, oregano ones). 

I also wanted to use chorizo, but the market didnt have it, so I used a spicy andouille. I sliced it super thin and then pan fried them in a little tiny bit of olive oil . 

Now, on to the assembly. Pour the stewed tomatoes and sausages into your baking dish. The dish should be thick enough that you can "bury" your eggs in the sauce (like I've done here). {Don't ask me why its in this disposable metal pan >:{ the pan I was originally going to use is MISSING, but thats another story...grrrrr} Anyways, once you have poured the tomatoes in the pan, crack the eggs one at a time into a bowl/dish and using a large spoon dig a hole in the stewed tomatoes and pour in the egg. Bake it in the oven at 350 degrees for 10 minutes then broil for about 4 minutes

I couldn't resist! Had to peek in the oven ;P

Done.....mmmm...doesn't this look delicious??

 Added a little bit of parmesan.

This turned out sooooo delicious :) I had 2 of the eggs for dinner, with a couple of pieces of crusty bread. I'm glad I pushed myself to go do the grocery shopping and cook this. My goal is to try and do at least 1 post a week--lets see how it goes! Stayed consumed! :)
