Baked eggs with ratatouille

Ratatouille is one of my favourite easy recipes. I find it makes a hearty and filling dish even though it is only made from vegetables. I quite often cook a big pan and eat it again and again through the week and it always tastes better the next day!

This ‘baked eggs with ratatouillerecipe is a great way of using leftover ratatouille. The egg cooks to perfection in the tomato sauce and soaked up with a piece of crusty bread it makes a satisfying light meal.

I also think they look great in little individual dishes but you could make it in a large dish instead if you prefer.

For my baby daughter I whizzed up the ratatouille just enough to get rid of the large chunks and baked with lightly beaten egg. She loved it!

This recipe should be suitable for babies from approximately 8 months old as long as you know they are not allergic any of the ingredients.
