Parmesan and Tomato Baked Egg with Toast Soldiers

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.

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.
