Lazy Weekend Breakfast!

Don’t you just love a lazy Sunday morning? You know, the kind of morning you don’t have to be anywhere, or do anything. The kind of morning where you wake up and the smell of coffee is in the air, you grab your big cup, pour some, and then go over and start reading the Sunday paper.

An hour or two later you start getting hungry, but you want something different, something special, well this is it!! Eggs in Purgatory, Uovo in Purgatorio, or just plain Eggs cooked in a Chunky Marinara Sauce. Whatever you call it, I call it DELICIOUS!

For 4 eggs I used one 14OZ can of whole, crushed, or in this case, I used an Italian brand of canned cherry tomatoes. Saute in olive oil, 1 clove of crushed garlic, 1/2 of an onion, red pepper flakes(optional). Simmer until tomatoes cook down, I had to pierce my little tomatoes to help it along. Finish by throwing in some fresh chopped basil.

Now carefully crack your eggs on top of your cooked sauce, let the eggs poach slowly, covering them slightly to cook the yolks to your likeness.

At this point, you’ll want to toast up some good Italian bread, I stuck mine under the broiler for a few minutes.

When every things done, place your egg right on top of your toasted crusty bread, grab another cup of coffee and enjoy!!
