    P4's Note:

    Great, simple brunch dish. My husband asks for it all the time, sometimes even for dinner. This is an adaptation of a recipe from M.F.K. Fisher's "How to Cook a Wolf".

    1. 1
      Saute the onion, pepper and garlic in the olive oil in a large, deep skillet.
    2. 2
      When they are softened, stir in the tomatoes, tomato paste, herbs and honey.
    3. 3
      Simmer for about 10 minutes, then make indentations in the sauce (as much as possible) with a spoon, and break an egg into each indentation.
    4. 4
      Spoon the sauce around and over the eggs, put a lid on the sauce and simmer gently until the eggs are poached.
    5. 5
      Lift each egg out onto the toast/muffin/waffle, then spoon the sauce over top.
    6. 6
      Sprinkle each with grated Parmesan cheese and serve.
    7. 7
      MEXICAN STYLE: To change this dish to a more Mexican flavor, saute 2 tsp cumin seed with the onions and bell pepper.
    8. 8
      Cut the basil and marjoram by half, add a pinch of chili powder and a dash of Tabasco sauce.
    9. 9
      Before the eggs are finished poaching, sprinkle them with grated cheddar cheese.
    10. 10
      Serve them with tortillas and your favorite Mexican toppings: diced avocado, sour cream, chopped onion, etc.

      Who knew eggs could taste so good? I made these exactly as written (with the dried herbs) and served them on toasted english muffins. I considered trying to cut the recipe in half for just the two of us, and then decided not to..., just used 4 eggs, ...good thing, because there wasn't any left over. This is going to be a favorite "brunch" item at our house. Thanks, Petitfour!
