Eggs In Tomato Sauce

Eggs In Tomato Sauce

This warm and hearty breakfast perks up a skillet of eggs with a rich, tomato-based poaching sauce and your choice of sweet or white potatoes (yes, white potatoes are fine if you don’t personally have an issue with them). And bacon, of course. Because all breakfasts are better with bacon.

The first few steps are basically the easiest possible instructions for making your own tomato sauce. Cooking everything else right away in the same skillet cuts down on the number of dishes to wash, so you get the maximum homemade flavor with the minimum possible extra work. After that, just crack in the eggs and let it all cook until it’s done. You could also add any other meat to the recipe, or even some kale or another vegetable at the end for more greens.

This might not be as quick as a grab-and-go recipe, but it’s a great choice for the weekends when there’s a little extra time to cook something special. Think of it as the Paleo version of fried eggs with home fries and ketchup, but all in one skillet, and no need to put up with lousy diner coffee while you dig in.
