Hangover Eggs


Tomato sauce is always a good thing when you don't feel well. Here is a great cure for a hangover, or just a delicious breakfast/brunch idea.

(Serve with Bloody Marys, of course).

Hangover Eggs: (by way of the Good Mood Food Blog)

1 28oz. can of Italian San Marzano chopped tomatoes
handful of fresh basil
handful of fresh spinach
1 small onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, chopped
4 eggs
salt & pepper

In a heavy cast iron skillet, cook your onion and garlic for a few minutes to wilt them.

Add the tomatoes and simmer about 20 minutes to make a nice sauce.
Throw in the basil and spinach. Season with salt and pepper.

Make 4 wells and crack an egg into each hole. If you like your eggs runny, then just keep the sauce and eggs on the stove a few minutes, simmering.

We like our eggs cooked, so I place the pan under the broiler for 3 minutes until the top of the eggs are completely cooked.

Carefully, using an oven mitt, bring skillet to the table and spoon over toasted ciabatta bread.

I feel better already!

I used to make this for dinner - throw in a few chicken livers and it's quite a treat. I swear you are part Italian.

Cool, that's 2 things I have in abundance in the kitchen right now. Eggs and bread.

Hens are in overdrive and we have several loaves of french bread from the trip to New Orleans this weekend.
