Recently, I was able to get hold of a health magazine, from which I was able to find some easy and delicious recipes. One of those recipes that I tried was this baked eggs with roasted vegetables. My family and I like this recipe because it consists of a few and easy accessible ingredients (except for Manchego cheese). Manchego cheese can be easily replaced by Parmesan, Romano or a sharp, white English cheddar. This recipe has a simple and easy to follow instruction as well. In this recipe, the seasoned vegetables was roasted first and then topped with cracked eggs. Then, it was finished off in the oven for another 10 minutes. I was very impressed on how this dish turned out. It was delicious, satisfying and healthy as well. I will definitely make this dish again. Enjoy!
