throwback thursday.. tomatoes and eggs..

today's throwback thursday post is one of my all time favorite breakfasts!! I shared tina tomatoes and eggs back in october 2011.. my friend tina turned us on to this recipe one camping trip many moons ago.. and ever since then it's been a family favorite.. i even made it this past camping trip at the beach.. it's so simple.. like crazy simple.. but the results are a luscious tomatoey sauce which go perfect with creamy eggs.. i am going to change things up bit to the recipe soon i ordered harrissa from amazon.. which is a spicy moroccan tomato paste.. i can't wait to try it with these eggs!! i'll keep you posted.. in the interim if you want to try something delish and easy please try this recipe you won't be disappointed tina and i promise!! {this recipe is the stripped down no frills version.. tina adds breakfast meats to hers and i have even added salami before.. be creative..}

tomatoes and eggs

prep time: 5  minutes
cook time:  1 hour
servings:     3 (you could easily make this for 4 just add 2 more eggs)

2 cans of diced or crushed garlic and olive oil tomatoes  (i like the crushed garlic and olive tomatoes but i have used italian and plain on many occasions, however the mexican didn't work well)
olive oil
italian spices
salt and pepper
6 eggs (or 8 if making it for 4)
flour tortillas or crusty bread

in a dutch oven or whatever pot that can go in your oven heat twice around the pan of olive oil over medium low heat.. then add your cans of tomatoes.. cook for about a 1/2 an hour.. stirring occasionally.. what your looking for is the liquid to evaporate.. add italian spices.. i did basil, oregano and thyme this time add salt and pepper and let simmer on medium low another 15 or so minutes.. your looking for it to start to get thick and most of the liquid to be gone.. heat your oven to 350 degrees (f).. crack your eggs into the tomatoes.. like sunny side up eggs.. then put in the oven for another 15 minutes or so.. you want the white part to be cooked all the way through.. now if you like your eggs cooked a little hard then by all means cook them to your liking.. once done remove from oven and let sit for about 3 minutes (it's super hot) scoop onto your plate take a flour tortilla or toasty bread and dig/dip in.. super yummy.. i add crushed red pepper to mine and pete adds tobasco to his.. there are no rules..
enjoy and get cook'n!!
