Morning Terrace Pizza
1 10- to 12-inch baguette, cut in two and sliced open, inside dough removed
1 package mild Italian sausage
1 1/2 cups fontina, mozzarella or Monterey Jack cheese, shredded
Dried red pepper flakes
3 Roma tomatoes, diced
4 whole eggs
Pepper, to taste
1/3 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
2 tablespoons fresh chives, chopped
Position oven rack in center of oven and heat oven to 400°F.
Cut baguette in half and then slice it open to create four equal open-faced pieces. Remove doughy center, leaving half-inch border close to edge.
In large skillet, sauté sausage until browned. Remove from heat, thinly coin slice and set aside.
Top baguettes evenly with 3/4 shredded cheese. Shake on red pepper flakes to taste. Place sausage pieces evenly on top around edges. Add rest of cheese and diced tomatoes. Bake for 5 to 8 minutes and remove from oven.
Using the back of a spoon, lightly make 4 indentations in center of baguettes, not too close to crust, pushing some of ingredients to sides. Carefully crack an egg into each depression. Grind pepper on each egg, and top with Parmesan cheese.
Return to oven for 5 to 7 minutes, until egg whites are set, but yolk is still soft. Remove, sprinkle with fresh chives, cut and enjoy. Yields 4 servings.
