I have been seeing egg dishes with something called soldiers for awhile now. I did some research and the soldiers are just strips of toast. The toast is cut into strips to make dipping into the egg easier. I was craving something quick and simple for lunch today so I checked the refrigerator to see what I had on hand. I decided to bake an egg. I added Parmesan cheese and a bit of sliced grape tomatoes to the egg and I served it with toast “soldiers”. It was a simple and delicious dish. I loved the salty Parmesan with the sweet tomatoes and the toast dipped in the egg tasted wonderful.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Coat a small ramekin with cooking spray. Place a couple of tomatoes and some Parmesan into the ramekin.
Crack an egg into the ramekin, being careful not to break the yolk. Add the milk, a few more tomatoes and Parmesan to the top. Season with sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste.
Place onto a baking tray and cook for 5 minutes; Turn the oven to broil and cook for another 5 minutes or until the whites are set but the yolk remains soft. Meanwhile, place a piece of bread into the toaster and toast. Butter the toast then cut into 4 equal strips. Remove the egg from the oven and serve with the soldiers immediately. Enjoy.
