Baked Egg with Sausage, Mushroom, and Basil Marinara on Toast

This recipe was inspired by a fellow food blogger, Larry, who makes the most amazing breakfasts with his leftovers. I had leftover bread and marinara sauce from the pasta dinner we had last night. Instead of pasta with the sauce for lunch I decided to bake an egg on top of the marinara sauce then serve it on top of a piece of toast. It was super simple to make and took only 15 minutes to make. The toast with the soaked up the marinara and the egg on top with Parmesan and basil tasted fantastic. I have a feeling I will be having this for lunch again tomorrow.

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Coat a baking dish with cooking spray.

Heat the leftover marinara sauce in the microwave until warm. Pour the warmed marinara into the baking dish. Crack an egg on top of the sauce then season with sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste.

Place into the oven and bake for 9-14 minutes, or until the whites set and yolk is still soft. Place the leftover piece of bread in the oven when there is 2-3 minutes time left baking for the egg. Remove from the oven and sprinkle the Parmesan and basil on top of the baked egg.

Spoon the egg and sauce onto the top of the toasted bread and serve immediately. Enjoy.

    Who is this Larry that you speak of? ha ha
    He is the king of breakfasts but you are royalty too, creating dishes like this one, Pam. I like the acidity the marinara brings to this.
