Poached Eggs in Pizza Sauce

Poached Eggs in Pizza Sauce

Poached eggs are a breakfast classic, but did you ever think about poaching them in a liquid that wasn’t water? Eggs in bone broth are delicious and you can drink the broth for extra nourishment. But why not kick it up even further: add some crushed tomatoes and seasonings to that broth and enjoy your poached eggs with all the flavors of pizza?

It’s also full of the good stuff – did you know that tomatoes are one of the few foods that gain nutritional value from being canned? So if you’re going to have canned anything, canned tomatoes are the way to go. They’re full of antioxidants, potassium, and other minerals.

This recipe combines all the convenience of poached eggs with all the flavor of tomatoes, Italian herbs, and bacon crumbles. It would be great for a quick breakfast, but don’t pass it up for dinner, either: it makes a surprisingly filling meal to come home to after work.
