Italian Eggs in Purgatory

You know I love a good brunch item. Something that is hearty but takes less than 20 minutes to make. Sign. me. up.

And you also may know that I paid a visit recently to Famoso Neapolitan pizzeria to show 5 things you didn’t know about Neapolitan pizza.

What intrigued me most about this pizzeria is that everything from their dough to their sauces are made the traditional way.  They even import their tomatoes from Campania, then hand-mill these tomatoes before they caramelize them to perfection… no wonder I love their sauce

So what does that have to do with brunch?

Well, when Famoso launched their brand new authentico Pomodoro sauce and partnered with MealShare to do some good in the community, I happily jumped on board to make a delicious recipe using their new sauce. And that, my friends, is where brunch comes in.

One of my favorite tomato dishes to make is “Uova al Purgatorio” or Eggs in Purgatory which is essentially eggs cooked into a spicy tomato sauce.   This dish has many variations but one that I love has Italian Sausage, fresh garlic and chili flakes served with lightly toasted sourdough rubbed with garlic.

And since we have an authentic sauce already done, we skip the time to make it ourselves #winning.

Check out the recipe below to make your own Eggs in Purgatory.

Directions:

In a skillet on medium to medium high heat, add olive oil and sweet onion. Saute onion for about a minute.

Add Italian sausage, minced garlic, chili flakes, paprika, and garlic powder.  Cook until sausage is fully cooked (about 5-7 minutes).

Pour in tomato sauce giving a good stir and allowing to cook another 3-5 minutes.   Crack an egg one-at-a-time into the tomato sauce.  Cook eggs with lid on until eggs are white and no longer translucent.

Remove from heat.

Garnish with fresh parsley and crumbled goat cheese.  Serve by itself or with some freshly toasted bread of your choice.

Enjoy!
