Poached eggs in tomato sauce, complimented by garlic cheese toasts, is a meal that shouldn’t be taken lightly for anything except its preparation, cooking time, and the effort you need to put into making the dish. Delicious, healthy, and energy-boosting, this meal is a wonderful choice for refueling your body.
To make this dish, you’ll need:
- 1 tablespoon of extra-virgin olive oil
- 1 cup of chopped onion
- 3 minced garlic cloves
- 3 tablespoons of tomato paste
- 1/3 cup of dry red wine
- 1 teaspoon of sugar
- ½ teaspoon of kosher salt
- ¼ teaspoon of freshly ground black pepper
- ½ teaspoon of ground Aleppo pepper (or crushed red pepper)
- 1 can of unsalted petite diced tomatoes
- 4 large eggs
- 4 slices of sourdough bread
- 1 halved garlic clove
- 2 ounces of shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
Preheat a broiler to high heat, and heat a medium nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the oil to the pan, and swirl it around to coat before adding the onion and minced garlic into it. Mix the onion and the garlic for 4 minutes, then add the tomato paste, and cook everything for 1 minute while stirring constantly.
Add the wine, cook the mix for 1 more minute (or until the liquid almost evaporates), and add the sugar, salt, peppers, and tomatoes.
Cover the pan, reduce the heat to medium, and let the mix simmer for 2 minutes.
Crack the eggs on top of the mixture, cover the pan again, and let everything cook as it is for 5 minutes (or until the egg whites are set and the yolks are soft).
To make the garlic cheese toasts, place the bread slices on a baking sheet and broil them for 1 ½ minute on each side (or until they’re toasted).
Rub each bread slice with the halved garlic clove, and sprinkle 2 tablespoons of cheese on each bread slice. Broil the slices for another 1 ½ minute or until the cheese melts. Divide the tomato mixture and the eggs evenly among 4 shallow bowls, and serve the mix with the garlic bread.
