"I'm grateful to andypandy for telling me about Eggs in Purgatory in answer to a community question about varying poached eggs. I checked out the various recipes and then adapted them to my needs and came up with this. Rather than an Italian style tomato sauce, it is more like a Latin salsa. The garlic and onions can either be done first in the skillet, adding a bit more oil to the skillet after that so as not to let the eggs stick,, or, if rushed then can use garlic powder and dried minced onions in the salsa/sauce. (Salsa just means 'sauce' in Spanish) I get a kick out of watching it cook because the edges of the egg look kind of ragged as the tomato sauce bubbles up and the pattern looks like flames,,, haha and thus the name of the dish. I'm not fussy about the exact amounts of ingrediants and many of you 'tweak' recipes anyway,, so please understand that the amounts are approximations,, and it also depends on how many eggs are being poached. The fry pan should be a size so that the number of eggs fits with just a little bit of space between and around the eggs and the sauce has some depth, so don't use a huge pan for two eggs."
