I hope everyone had a wonderful July 4th! Over the holiday weekend, I made breakfast for us. Our normal weekend breakfast usually consists of scrambled eggs, hash browns and Vermont maple sausages. I know, we’re boring! Well, boring no more.
Today’s recipe is inspired from a meal I had a couple of months ago at a pub that Chris and I had brunch at. They had an item called Lamb Ragu with Poached Eggs, which I ordered and it tasted delicious. So I decided to use that idea to make it at home. I took my Beef Empanadas with Olives and Raisins filling and added tomato sauce to it. It was scrumptious! So if you’re trying to cure the breakfast blues, give this dish a try. Have a great weekend!
- 1/2 pound of ground beef
- olive oil for cooking
- 1 small onion, chopped
- 2 small cloves of garlic, finely chopped
- 1/4 teaspoon of ground cumin
- 1/4 teaspoon of chili powder
- 1/8 teaspoon of dried oregano
- salt and pepper
- 1 tablespoon of tomato paste
- 3 pimiento-stuffed green olives, sliced
- 4 tablespoons of raisins (I used golden raisins)
- 1/4 cup of dry sherry
- 1 1/2 cups of your favorite tomato sauce or crushed tomatoes
- 4 eggs
- fresh Italian parsley, finely chopped
In a large skillet over medium high heat add a little bit of olive oil and ground beef. Crumble and brown meat. Once cooked, use a slotted spoon to transfer meat into a bowl. Set aside. Remove any grease left in the skillet.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Drizzle in olive oil and add onions and garlic. Cook until onions soften then add ground cumin, chili powder, and dried oregano. Season with salt and pepper. Then add cooked meat back into the pot, along with tomato paste, olives and raisins. Stir to combine. Pour the sherry and simmer until the liquid has nearly evaporated, about 2-3 minutes. Then stir in tomato sauce. Let the sauce simmer for 15-20 minutes. Remove from heat and taste the sauce. Season with salt and pepper, if necessary.
Make 4 wells in the tomato sauce. Crack 1 egg into each well. Transfer skillet into the oven and bake for 15-18 minutes or until desired doneness. Sprinkle with chopped parsley and serve with crusty bread or a side salad.

Lovely Spanish inspired breakfast. Of course I would want some great crusty bread to get all that great sauce.

Hi Anne – I like making eggs in tomato sauce but never thought to fix it up with some meat and all that good stuff. What a great idea and great for any meal of the day! Thanks for the inspiration. Your kitchen is one tasty one!

I love baked eggs, but I’ve never had them in this picadillo style.
It looks really good
Thank you so much! 🙂
Just popped over from Reeni’s Broccoli Cheddar Soup which I planned on pinning from your board. However, it looks like I may just need to add these Baked Eggs too, they look delicious!
Thanks for sharing, Anne. Off to find you on Pinterest!
Thank you so much for the pin! 🙂
Great photo! I make a Moroccan dish that uses poached eggs in tomato sauce, but has totally different flavors. This looks so excellent! I really need to try this – it looks wonderful. Thanks so much.
Thank you so much John! 🙂
This is right up my alley! Bring on some crusty bread and this can be a good good dinner.
Thanks Jayne! 🙂
So cool that you recreated a dish at home that you had at a restaurant! Looks absolutely delicious! My husband loves breakfast food and would want this ASAP if he saw it 🙂
Thank you so much Ashley! 🙂
This is a fantastic breakfast, Anne. It reminds me of Eggs in Purgatory, another baked eggs in tomatoes dish. WIth its Spanish flavors, your version would be a very nice change. And, yes, bring on the crusty bread!
Thanks John! Always lovely to hear from you. 🙂
This is totally my kind of breakfast! Can’t wait to try this!!
Thanks Marie! 🙂 Enjoy your trip to Paris!
Anne – this recipe has my name all over it. I love baked eggs for breakfast or dinner, and these look so unique. Armed with some crusty bread, I could dive right into that pan!
Baked eggs is one of my favorite, thanks for stopping by Jess!
What a terrific way to serve eggs…it looks delicious!!!
Thanks Liz! 🙂
We eat boring eggs for breakfast too often. I have to make this one day!
It’s definitely different than your average fried or scrambled eggs. We loved it! Thanks for stopping by.
This is both familiar and new to me. I make shakshouka pretty regularly for dinner, which this resembled, but it seems like the flavor is quite different. I must try it!
Thanks for stopping by Nora! 🙂
This looks so scrumptious, Anne! Perfect for a long, lazy brunch.
I agree Georgia! Thanks for taking the time to comment! 🙂
Let the drooling begin! This looks absolutely delicious Anne! I could happily eat that for dinner too!
You’re so sweet Reeni! 🙂 Thank you so much for stopping by. Have a great week!
I’ve never baked eggs before. These look unbelievable and something I need to try soon!
You’ll love it! There’s definitely less clean up than frying an egg. Thanks for stopping by Eva! 🙂
Man, I wish somebody would make this for me!
I’ll beam some over! 😉
It looks mouthwatering! I’ll give a try soon..

So tempting!! Love baked eggs for brunch!
Thank you Kiran! 🙂
Great dish! I think baked egg dishes are under-rated. A great base like yours and those lovely eggs. Terrific!
