Method

  1. Heat oven to 180C/fan 160C/gas 4. Heat the oil, then cook the pepper until soft, stirring occasionally. Add tomatoes and basil, then cook, stirring, until the liquid has evaporated. Season, then set aside.

  2. Meanwhile, mix the butter and garlic together and use to butter both sides of the bread. Remove the crusts. Push the bread slices into the bases of a greased four-cup Yorkshire pudding tin and bake for 15 mins.

  3. Remove from the oven and divide the pepper mixture between the 4 bread-lined cups. Make a well in the centre of each, crack an egg into each well, season, then bake for 10 mins until the eggs are set. Serve hot with a green salad and some basil leaves.

This was a great dish for a quick supper after I got in late from work. I only made one slight change which was to sprinkle some grated cheese over the eggs before I baked them... Mmmmmm.
Really fast, really easy, really tasty.
