eggs in hell

It’s been one of those weeks. And it’s only Wednesday. Children are oblivious to the tribulations of adults and when they want dinner they want it now. Well, here you go kids.

Eggs in Hell

I’ve slightly adapted the original recipe by M.F.K. Fisher. It is scrumptious over quinoa. Not to mention fool-proof, as I’ve several times forgotten about the pan entirely and the eggs were still delicious because the eggs and thin layer of sauce got crispy on the bottom.

3 tablespoons olive oil

1 clove garlic minced

1 onion minced

2 cups of Italian-style tomato sauce

1 teaspoon each of chopped basil and parsley

Fresh cracked pepper

8 eggs


Heat oil in a saucepan that has a tight cover

Add the garlic and onion and cook until golden

Add the tomato sauce and herbs

Cook about 10 minutes, stirring often

Into this sauce break the eggs. Spoon the sauce over them, cover and cook until the eggs are done, about fifteen minutes.

When done put the eggs on slices of dry toast and cover with sauce or spoon over cooked quinoa.

Optional: sprinkle with Parmesan cheese
