Great recipe! Sometimes I add some olives and capers to the tomato puree, just for a change of pace.

Made these in individual servings and finished the last step in the oven (in those small oven proof ceramic dishes). FANTASTIC. It was easier to control how each person wished to have their eggs that way. LOVE LOVE LOVE this recipe. Served with various breads, Very easy really. Can be prepared all the way till putting the eggs in the night before.

This was easy and tastes fantastic! I luv tomatoes anyway I can have them...and this recipe really hit the spot. DH even enjoyed it and he's not crazy about tomatoes like I am. Very versatile, you can do just about anything with this and not go wrong. Thank you for sharing!

I used this recipe for eggs in purgatory and modified it slightly for my own taste. I love the way the egg looks at the edges with the simmering tomato sauce.. haha the edges look like flames and the bubbling tomato looks like ,,, purgatory. I love it!

Awesome! Used diced tomatos, oh and set them on a bed of creamy grits. Like I said, awesome!

Very good! Served these over slices of whole-grain bread. The eggs took much longer to cook than the recipe specifies, so not sure what the difference was (heat, amount of tomato puree)? But they were fantastic tasting anyway, Thanks!

I have had this recipe simply made with eggs using canned tomatoes and have them over toast.... Delish!
