I’ve done it. I’ve found the one, the breakfast dish that I’ll make for any and all morning visitors that I have. It’s easy, requires less than 10 ingredients and is perfect alongside one or two cups of coffee. First, you let the sauce simmer with a bunch of herbs and spices, then you take a few eggs to throw in there so that you can scoop them up later with toast. Visitors and houseguests, you are welcome in advance.
Skillet Eggs in Spicy Tomato Sauce
1 can unsalted and peeled Marzano tomatoes
1 tsp. olive oil
3 cloves garlic, peeled and minced
1/2 tsp. cracked black pepper
1/2 tsp. cracked red pepper
1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper
Chives, finely chopped
1. In a cast iron skillet or a heavy bottomed pan, mix your tomatoes, garlic and spices together and bring to a quick boil with just a few bubbles popping. Once it gets to a boil, bring it down to a simmer on low heat and let simmer for 10 minutes.
2. Once your tomato sauce has simmered and gotten flavorful, use a spoon to make small craters in the sauce. Crack your eggs directly over the pan and let them fall into those little craters. Top with a little bit more cracked red and black pepper and let them cook until the egg whites are white (duh).
3. Serve the skillet eggs directly out of the pan with toasted bread with butter. Enjoy!
