baked eggs in sauce

various dates

Eggs in sauce are eggs baked or coddled in a large quantity of sauce, The sauce is the main ingredient, and the eggs might possibly get cooked even without being baked. The oven broiler helps them to get cooked from above.

Cast-iron pans are often recommended for this because they can hold a lot of heat. Just be aware that that also means that the eggs keep cooking long after the pan is removed from the heat.

I like baked eggs OK. I love Provençal sauce. Here, I am putting them together.

Unless you prepare the sauce beforehand, this is not a dish for a quick breakfast but it would do very well for a breakfast-for-dinner event or a casserole with eggs added.
