    justcallmetoni's Note:

    My love of eggs - for breakfast, lunch or dinner - is no secret. So when I came across this one I knew it was a likely winner. Have not tried it yet but posting it with the original ingredients. I will most likely reduce the calorie count in my own rendition.

      Very good! I used the stovetop option. This was flavorful and a had a nice little kick from the chili pepper. Thanks for sharing!

      This was an excellent breakfast dish. Thanks to prior comments I did some tweaking of the recipe. First, I did not have a red chili pepper so I used a jalapeno pepper. Then I used canned tomatoes and included about 2 tablespoons of juice with the tomatoes to make up for the lack of liquid when poaching the eggs. Oh, and I cooked on the stove top in a skillet. Again excellent dish, made easier with the addition of the extra tomato juice. Thanks for a new breakfast dish that I will make this again. Made for ZWT3.

      Great combination of flavours. I made this for one -- and for breakfast. I expected the veggies to sweat out enough moisture, but like the other reviewers, I didn't have any liquid for basting. I needed to add several tablespoons of water. I forgot to take a photo, but will add one the next time I cook it. I love savoury for breakfast. Made and enjoyed for Zaar World Tour.
