Serves 8 | Prep Time 10 minutes | Cook Time 12 minutes


1 loaf ciabatta bread (about 1 pound)
1 cup chopped shallots
8 tablespoons olive oil, divided
8 ounces sliced hot pepper Monterey Jack cheese
1 pound Chicken Andouille Sausage (or whatever type of sausage you prefer)
8 large eggs

Preheat oven to 450°F. Cut bread horizontally in half. Place bread halves, cut side up, on separate baking sheets and bake for 5 minutes, or until the edges just turn a pale golden color. Remove from oven and set aside. Reduce heat to 400°F.

Meanwhile, mix shallots and 6 tablespoons oil in small bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Reserve 2 tablespoons onion oil and spread remaining onion oil over bread. Top with cheese.

Sauté sausages in large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until cooked through, breaking up with spoon, about 7 minutes. Divide sausage among bread halves. Bake pizzas until cheese melts and bread turns a golden brown and is crisp, about 7 minutes.

Meanwhile, heat 1 tablespoon oil in each of 2 large skillets over medium-high heat. Crack 4 eggs into each skillet. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cook 2 minutes. Remove from heat and let eggs stand in skillets while pizzas bake.

Arrange 4 eggs atop each pizza. Spoon reserved onion oil over eggs. Cut each pizza between eggs into 4 pieces.
