Baked Eggs in Pomodoro Sauce and a TV appearance


Baked Eggs in Pomodoro SauceI’d bookmarked this Baked Eggs in Pomodoro Sauce recipe from Quay Po Cooks sometime ago. QPC had been so fortunate to watch Chef Fabio Viviani (Top Chef Season 5) demonstrate this simple and delicious recipe at his restaurant. I can imagine Chef Fabio’s suave personality charming all the female audience at the demo.

This huge Top Chef fan (pointing to me) could watch the seasons reruns over and over again. Watching the chefs’ creative minds at work is just so mesmerizing and inspiring. With gorgeous Padma as the host, it’s as though the show is created just for her. I have so many favourite chefs – Richard Blais, Carla Hall among a few. Who is your favourite?

Baked Eggs in Pomodoro Sauce

When my younger sis came to visit, I made this Baked Eggs served with roasted broccoli salad. It’s perfect for that day as both of us wanted something light and easy. The meal may looked light but it was pretty filling for both of us. Cooking roasted broccoli for the first time, both of us were surprised by how nutty and good it tasted. Will tweak again before posting the recipe.

Talking about television, I appeared on Bella at NTV7 (a local television network) last Friday. Though I was more well prepared this time around, my thoughts were kinda scattered, so don’t laugh. I had lots of fun demonstrating a healthy dessert – Dragon Fruit Agar Agar (Jelly). The recorded copy isn’t that clear, but you will get the gist of it.

Baked Eggs in Pomodoro Sauce
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Recipe type: Appetiser
Serves: 2
  • 500g Pomodoro Sauce (I use bottled natural Pomodoro Sauce) or Homemade Tomato Sauce
  • 1 tablespoon Olive Oil
  • 1 teaspoon Italian Herbs (mixed of dried basil, oregano & thyme)
  • 2 cloves Garlic - minced
  • 1 large Onion - finely sliced
  • ½ cup grated Cheese (I used some leftover Gouda)
  • 2 Eggs
  • salt and black pepper to taste
  1. Place oil in a small pot on low heat and saute garlic and onions.
  2. When onions are soft, add in tomatoes and herbs. Simmer about 10mins until it is reduced into a thick gravy.
  3. Scoop into 2 ovenproof bowls (I used 5" bowls) and sprinkle grated cheese over the top.
  4. Crack an egg onto the dish and bake at 180˚C for about 10 mins until cheese has melted into golden brown and the egg is cooked enough to still have a runny yolk. 2 minutes extra if you prefer a well-cooked yolk.

    • Thank you Simone, the audience will never see how nerve wrecking it was for me 🙂 About photography, I’m still struggling with napkins/cloth placement.. blah I give up.. haha

  8. This looks a wee bit similar to the Shakshuka that I do. It is very filing with the egg, so perfect for any meal. And I love roasted broccoli, especially if it gets a bit ‘caught’ – mmm. I will have a look at your dessert making, but no matter how you perceive yourself, others will invariably think you look very calm and professional I’m sure. I certainly couldn’t do something like that!

    • I love Shakshuka too, my favourite brunch but my sis don’t like it. I did better on tv this time as I’ve been conducting some classes, but the nerves still get the better of me. I’m sure you will do great too, as you are used to conducting classes
