Who doesn't love the sound of smokey tomato baked eggs!? This is by far my favourite baked eggs recipe and it's also the simplest. You're going to love it! It's also a crowd-pleaser and my go-to when hosting brunch/lunch gatherings.
The addition of the smokey paprika really makes the flavour of these baked eggs pop. If you don't have any I highly recommend purchasing some and keeping it in your pantry. It's one of my most used spices, so good!
I hope you enjoy and please let me know if you have any questions.
