Enjoy this dish hot from the oven, with crusty bread to soak up the runny yolks. For firmer yolks and whites, leave the eggs on the rimmed baking sheet for 4 to 5 minutes before serving.

How to Make It

Step 1
1

Preheat oven to 400° with a rack in the center. Line a 12- by 17-in. rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper and coat lightly with oil.

Step 2
2

Put mushrooms and leeks on baking sheet. Sprinkle with oil, 1/2 tsp. each salt and pepper, and the thyme and toss to coat. Spread vegetables in an even layer. Bake until softened and starting to brown, about 10 minutes.

Step 3
3

Remove baking sheet from oven but leave oven on. Make 8 evenly spaced hollows in vegetables and crack an egg into each. Sprinkle with goat cheese and salt and pepper to taste.

Step 4
4

Return baking sheet to oven and bake until egg whites are set but shiny and yolks are still runny, 8 to 10 minutes; jiggle baking sheet to check softness of yolks.

 2 large leeks, sliced thinly into half-moons, rinsed well, and drained (about 4 cups)
