I swapped out the ketchup for hot salsa and used 1/2 cup of grated pepper jack. This egg dis will be a regular for me now

Was feeling a bit queasy (no, not a hangover, just a bit off) and thought I would try this. Have already reviewed Darlene Summers Eggs in Catsup and this variation appealed to me. It was great! Felt much better (don't know if it was this particular combination or if I just needed something in my stomach.......) When the eggs were halfdone I added the cheese to get a little thicker sauce. Also addded about 5 mad dashes of tabasco to the sauce. It took me about 5 minutes to get the eggs done. Very pleased to have found this. Thanks for posting.

I was intrigued by this recipe and made it today for my husband and I (we were not hung over). Unfortunately, he and I were not fans of the flavor. It was too ketchupy for our taste. Even with Sriracha the ketchup flavor was just too strong. I do think this would be good for a hangover, but I bet plain old poached eggs on toast with a Bloody Mary would be better!

This was really good! No one had a hangover, but it was a great breakfast. Next time I think we will add sausage to it.

yummm! I tried this without having a hangover :) It sounds weird but I like those weird things, they always seem to be the best! I do flavor my ketchup well with onion and garlic powders, italian seasonings, and hot sauce. All that with poached eggs, cheese, S&P, over toast makes a great light breakfast! Thanks for this great unique idea!

Wow! So yummy! Both my son and I fixed this this morning and defanitely will be again and again. I used apple cider vinegar and several splashes of hot sauce and plenty of cheddar cheese.

EXACTLY what I was hoping for! I am a total fiend for ketchup/eggs/cheese.. and the vinegar absolutely brought this together. I've made them with both plain white vinegar, and apple cider vinegar .. for some reason that I can't seem to quite put my finger on, I enjoyed the white vinegar a little more. I, too, have also added hot sauce, and that was a hit! Thank you so much for this delicious treat. My lazy microwaved eggs days are OVER!

I REALLY wanted to like this recipe. I like ketchup on my eggs, and I enjoy poached eggs, but the flavor just didn't work for me. Even with the vinegar (I used apple cider vinegar) it didn't cut the sweetness of ketchup. Also, perhaps my cooktop puts out more heat than the other recipe testers, because 3 minutes was actually too much for me. While the egg whites ended up tender, the yolks were overdone.

I never had or made poached eggs before. Like others I was skeptical because I'm not a big fan of ketchup, but these were really good and very easy. They were even a big hit with my DH who is very picky and usually won't try new things. I sauteed 1/2 of a medium onion and one clove of garlic in a teaspoon of butter. Then I added the ketchup mixture. It doesn't say what kind of vinegar so I used balsamic because I like the flavor. For me three minutes were perfect and I was able to get six eggs made with this (two at a time). I'm a school bus driver and had the day off because of the snow, so this was perfect for an unexpected day off. Thank you so much Bill.
