Baked Eggs with Sauce, Pepperoni and Mozzarella Recipe

Saturday, November 3, 2012
My brother John inspired me to make eggs with pepperoni, sauce and mozzarella. He said that mom made it that way. She always used leftover sauce, then both brothers would bring leftovers to school in a sandwich.

Dad always made the omelets with fried ham and eggs,then sometimes added peppers and potatoes. So I decided to try it with tomatoes, pepperoni, sauce and mozzarella baked! I think Mom would have loved this one even though she fried hers!



this is how to make an baked egg casserole with pepperoni, tomato sauce, pepperoni and cheese all in a pie plate that is inexpensive and fast to make.






Italian Eggs Baked



This is a childhood favorite, mom made often.


Sometimes an early dinner on Sunday night she would make this fried frittata with eggs and pepperoni with cheese and leftover sauce.


As the years went by, I started using the same ingredients except I baked it, and it's so much easier.


Half the fat calories and still delicious.

Mom Made Everything A Banquet Meal



Back in the 1960's, money was tight, most family were one income.


Even though as time went on mom started out with her own business in catering foods, then after I was born she went to work full time in a grocery store managing a deli.


She was always a go getter.


Mom knew how to stretch a dollar and make every meal a banquet using everyday pantry items.

Mom Called this Depression Food



This was a delicious pan fried meal that came together fast and as you know if you work that's a must have recipe!


All us kids loved this even though it was considered depression food.


She made sure everything always tasted great with a few ingredients and was an inexpensive meal.


If there was leftovers, sandwiches were made for school lunch the next day.


This baked version is delicious and baked eggs with sauce and pepperoni is just a delicious way to prepare a quick meal for the family.

Change it up!



In this Baked Eggs, with Sauce, Pepperoni and Mozzarella Recipe, you can add whatever you like, especially leftover meats.


Mom usually used pepperoni, because it's precooked and she didn't have to have another step to cook a meat to add.

Suggestions



However if you love bacon use it, or any leftover cooked meats you prefer.


You can adapt this recipe and add more vegetables and no meat, or add more than one meat.


Even seafood added with some spinach is awesome.

  1. I think it looks awesome and I love the flavor combination you have. I think I'd carefully crack the eggs over the rest of the stuff and serve after the whites were just set.

  5. I just watched Lidia's Italy on PBS make a trio of fritattas and this looks like one of them. We eat eggs several times a week. A great quick and hearty dinner. Love their flexibility!
