2 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into small pieces (plus more for buttering dishes)
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme
2 cups tomato sauce
8 large eggs
Salt and pepper
2 tablespoons grated Parmesan


1. Preheat oven to 425°F. Butter four baking dishes no more than 1-inch deep and large enough to hold two eggs. Rub insides and bottoms of each baking dish with half a clove of garlic, pressing hard. Discard garlic.

2. Divide 2 Tbsp. butter evenly among baking dishes and sprinkle with thyme. Spoon in equal amounts of tomato sauce. Use back of a spoon to form 2 indentations in tomato sauce and break 1 egg in each. Season with salt and pepper and sprinkle with Parmesan.

3. Place dishes on a rimmed baking sheet. Bake until egg whites are opaque and yolks are firm around edges, 13 to 15 minutes. Serve hot.
