    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".

      When they are softened, stir in the tomatoes, tomato paste, herbs and honey.

    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!
