Butter individual baking dishes, and carefully slip in one or two eggs, as desired. Dust lightly with salt and pepper, and add a bit of butter. Set the dishes in a pan of boiling water, and cook the eggs gently in the oven until they are set. It will take about ten minutes for medium-soft eggs. They can be cooked directly in the oven without the hot water medium in a shorter time, but they will not be so digestible.
Heat a cupful of left-over stewed tomatoes; add a little diced onion and green peppers, cooked until soft and yellow, and put a tablespoonful of the mixture into the desired number of individual ramekins. Slip the egg on this and bake gently, until set. It is not necessary to use a pan of hot water, as the liquid from the tomato will prevent too rapid cooking.
