Parmesan and Tomato Baked Egg with Toast Soldiers

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.
