Skillet Eggs in Herbed Tomato Sauce
- 2 Tbsp. Olive oil
- 1 garlic clove, minced
- 1 28 oz. can crushed or diced tomatoes, with juice
- 1-1/2 Tbsp. minced parsley
- 1 tsp. rubbed sage
- 1/2 tsp. sugar
- 1/2 tsp. dried rosemary leaves, crushed
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 8 eggs
In a sprayed 12 – 14 in skillet over medium heat, combine olive oil, garlic, tomatoes with their juice, parsley, sage and sugar. Bring to a boil and boil uncover until reduced to 1-3/4 cups, about 20 – 25 minutes, stirring often, breaking up the tomatoes (if using crushed ones) and watch so the sauce does not burn. Add salt and pepper to taste.
Increase heat to medium high. Break eggs onto sauce. Cover pan and cook until eggs are done to your liking (about 3 – 4 minutes for soft yolks and firm whites).
Spoon sauce on each plate and top with 1 or 2 eggs. Add salt and pepper to taste.
Serves 4 to 8
Cinnamon Pecan Whipped Butter
- 1/4 lb. unsalted butter (1 stick) at room temperature
- 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
- 1 Tbsp. firmly packed brown sugar
- 1/4 cup finely ground pecans
Whip together the butter, cinnamon and sugar until light and fluffy. Stir in pecans. Serve immediately or cover and refrigerate up to 2 days. If refrigerated, let it come to room temperature before serving to make spreading easier.
