Baked Eggs on Cheesy Caramelized Onions

And can you believe that this is all under $10!!!!!!!!

2 tablespoons vegetable oil
3 large leeks (about 2lbs) dark green stalks discarded, halved lengthwise and cut crosswise 1/2 inch thick
1 1/2 lbs onions chopped
Salt and Pepper
4 slices country white bread, crusts discarded, toasted
3 ounces swiss cheese shredded
8 eggs

1) Preheat oven to 350. Grease a 3-quart ovall baking dish. In a large, heavy pot or dutch oven, heat the oil over medium heat. Add the leeks, onions and 1/2 teaspoon salt, cover and cook, stirring occasionally, for 10 minutes. Increase the heat to medium high, uncover and cook, stirring frequently, until veggies are softened and browned, about 8 minutes; season with salt and pepper.

2) Line bottom of the prepared baking dish with the toast and sprinkle with half of the cheese. Top with the onion mixture. Using the back of a spoon, make 8 deeps wells in the ionion mixture. Working 1 at a time, crack the eggs into a small bowl and pour them into the wells. Top with the remaining cheese; seasom with pepper.

3) Bake until the egg whites are set but still jiggly, about 20 minutes. Transfer the pan to the broiler and cook until the eggs are just set, 1 to 2 minutes!
