Baked Eggs with Sausage and Mushroom is a perfect breakfast dish for any day of the year. Fresh mushrooms and delicious sausage mixed with an amazing tomato sauce baked in the oven with eggs, can't get any better!
I'm here with a really delicious post today!
How is December treating you so far? It's really cold in Cambridge and I prefer to spend all day at home unless I really need to go out. But if we are home in this cold weather and we want something easy and really delicious that is not a drink, baked eggs with sausage and mushroom is a great option!
Why do we like our baked eggs with sausage and mushroom so much?
- It's so easy and quick, not to mention amazingly tasty.
- Those cute small cast iron skillets!
I've wanted to post a breakfast recipe for such a long time, but something always would come up. Finally, when Pete and Gerry's Organic Eggs reached out to me I didn't see any reason to put off the idea any more! I mean, look at that golden yellow yolk!
Pete and Gerry's Organic Eggs has been in business since late 1800's and they are country’s first Certified Humane Free Range egg producer. They source their eggs sustainably from small family farms and the eggs are so fresh and delicious.
Let me tell you more about these baked eggs with sausage and mushroom. I can have this dish for breakfast, lunch or dinner. The combination is right on point and the flavors go so well together. I would say that it's quite like shakshuka, but with a twist. The ingredients are very straight forward: red onion, red bell pepper, chicken sausage (or any other sausage you prefer) mushroom, diced tomatoes and of course, eggs.
Everything is done on the stove top and then divided into 4 small cast iron skillets (or one big one) and then you add the eggs and bake in the oven for 8-13 minutes (depending on how runny you like your eggs) and then voila, you have an awesome dish to devour.
I find it easier to cook everything in a big pan and then divide it between the cast irons and then break the eggs, but if you are planning to make baked eggs with sausage and mushroom in a large cast iron skillet, then you can just start with cooking everything in the same pan.
The key to a good baked eggs dish is the hot pan, so if you are going to wait until the last 8-13 minutes to transfer the mushroom-sausage mixture into the small cast iron skillets you may want to let those skillets sit in the oven while you're pre-heating.
Have an awesome week!
