In all of our collective recent memories, that one TikTok recipe with the baked feta pasta is truly one of the most delicious recipes that has gone viral. While we would love to eat this dish for every single meal, it might be a bit exaggerated to have a creamy pasta for breakfast. So why not modify it a tiny bit without sacrificing the delicious baked feta and swap out the pasta with eggs and beans for an incredible and hearty meal? Add a slice of delicious crusty bread and you’ll have a meal you’ll want to recreate every day.
2 pints cherry tomatoes
15 oz can white beans
1 shallot, quartered
1 teaspoon dry oregano
1/4 cup kalamata olives, halved
1/3 cup and 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
kosher salt, to taste
freshly ground black pepper
red pepper flakes, to taste
8 oz block of feta cheese
4 large eggs at room temperature
basil, for garnish
bread for serving
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Add the tomatoes, beans, shallots, oregano, and olives to a 12 inch baking dish. Drizzle everything with 1/3 cup olive oil and season with salt and pepper and the red chili flakes. Adjust the chili to how much heat you’d like.
Place the block of feta in the middle of the mixture and add the remaining oil on top. Season the cheese with a bit more salt, pepper, and chili flakes.
Place the baking dish in the oven for 30 minutes. Once everything is hot and bubbly, remove the dish from the oven. Mix everything together until the melted feta has been incorporated into the rest of the ingredients.
Place the baking dish back into the oven for another 15 minutes. Remove the dish and reduce the oven’s temperature to 375 degrees.
Mix all of the ingredients together once again, then create four small wells. Crack open an egg into each well, and then place back into the oven for about 8 to 10 minutes, or until the yolk has reached your desired consistency.
Remove the fish from the oven and season to taste. Garnish the dish with basil and a side of crusty bread. Enjoy!
