Baked Italian Eggs – 0 Freestyle Points

This is a great option for a 0 point breakfast! If you add a piece of toast it’s still low in points. Personally, I like mine with a slice of toast. I love dipping it into the yolk and the tomato sauce.

I love fresh basil. It is the perfect addition to this dish. If you’re not a fan you can leave it out. I made my own sauce so that I could keep it at 0 points. You can also use store bought marinara sauce, just make sure you calculate the points.

I like this dish because it is not a typical breakfast. It’s nice to mix things up every once in a while. Eating the same thing all of the time gets boring.

I used 10 oz. ramekins for this recipe. They are the perfect size! These are the exact ramekins I used:
