Eggs poached in a "spaghetti" sauce, served on top of toast

Recipe Ingredients for Poached Eggs in Tomato Sauce

1 tablespoon olive oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 pinch of crushed red pepper flakes
2 tablespoons red or white wine (optional)
28 ounce tomatoes
1 pinch sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 ground black pepper
4 large eggs
4 slices toasted country bread
4 T freshly grated Parmesan cheese

Recipe Directions for Poached Eggs in Tomato Sauce

  1. In a medium skillet, heat the oil, garlic, and pepper flakes over medium heat until the garlic and pepper is sizzling. Add the wine and let it simmer until it becomes syrupy, about 2 minutes. Stir in the tomatoes (drained and roughly chopped), sugar, salt and pepper. Reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer until thickened, 12 to 15 minutes.

  2. Break the eggs into individual small cups. Make wells or indentations in the sauce, and gently transfer the eggs from the cups to the wells; season the eggs with salt and pepper. Cover the pan and cook over medium-low heat for 5 to 7 minutes, or until the whites are set.

  3. Spoon a portion of sauce with an egg over toasted bread. Top with a generous sprinkling of parmesan cheese and serve immediately.
