Italian Basted Eggs on Ciabatta

Breakfast is one of those meals that is often easy to prepare, but frequently overlooked. I miss breakfast all too often, and because of lack of time, I make my kids turn to cereal due to the ease of it. They can make it themselves and clean up is easy. I am always looking for ways to feed my kids better when low on time. That’s kind of the life of a busy mom, right? Then I came up with these Italian Basted Eggs on Ciabatta. Talk about a super easy dish that takes 5 minutes to cook, while your time can be spent brushing kids’ hair or making lunches. This is an absolute no hassle breakfast that tastes amazing, and works for a yummy dinner on a busy weeknight!

Pasta Aisle at Walmart

First things first. Gather your breakfast making supplies. I picked all of mine up at Walmart, at very prices. One of my favorite hearty and flavorful pasta sauces is Classico. For this dish I used the Heinz Classico Family Favorites Parmesan & Romano. Since I planned to top my eggs with shredded parmesan cheese, I thought this sauce lended well to the flavors. The bag of ciabatta rolls were only a buck or two, and then you just need eggs and cheese. The Italian Basted Eggs on Ciabatta are a great way to get some of the necessary food groups into your day. You could totally add sausage and serve these up for dinner too!

Basted Eggs in Pasta Sauce

In case you aren’t familiar, a basted egg is similar to a poached egg. The taste and texture is quite the same, but the cooking method different. I imagine many of you haven’t considered cooking an egg in pasta sauce, but you will not regret it! Serve these bad boys up over pasta, crusty bread or just eat them as-is.

Cook Time
5 min
  1. 1/2 cup Classico Family Favorites Parmesan & Romano Sauce per egg
  2. 1 egg per person
  3. coarse salt and freshly-ground black pepper
  4. Freshly-grated Parmesan Cheese
  5. Ciabatta rolls, or other crusty bread
  1. In a frying pan (just large enough to ensure sauce covers the bottom), heat sauce over low heat. Bring to a mild simmer.
  2. Using a spoon, make a well in the sauce, for each egg you will be cooking.
  3. One at a time, break an egg into a small dish and slide it into the well created in the sauce. Repeat with remaining eggs.
  4. Sprinkle with salt, pepper and parmesan cheese. Cover with a lid and cook for 5 minutes for medium-firm yolks. Cook less or more depending on desired firmness.
  5. Slide cooked eggs out of the pan and on top of a toasted ciabatta roll. I prefer mine buttered first.
