dippin’ eggs

DSC00461dippin’ eggs….are my new best friend. anything i can cook in one pan…and then continue to eat out of that same pan is A++ in my book.  another great thing? you can literally eat this for breakfast, lunch or dinner — or all three, which is what i have succumb to. i saw the original recipe on the londoner and did not stop thinking about it until it was in my belly (and on my shirt.) fail. anywho, it is quite simple to cook up and actually the hardest part about it is waiting for the eggs to cook on top…because by that time, you will be salivating. sausageDSC00428eggs

dippin’ eggs (serves 2-4)

  • 2 links of italian sausage or chorizo (casings removed)
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 can of whole tomatoes, crushed
  • 1/2 can of tomato sauce
  • handful of cherry tomatoes
  • 1/2 red bell pepper
  • 1/2 yellow bell pepper
  • 1 tablespoon of honey
  • a few eggs (up to you!)
  • handful of cilantro, chopped
  • handful of soft cheese (feta, goat, boursin)
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • pinch red pepper flakes
  • s + p
  • sourdough or multigrain bread

here’s how:

first off, if you have a cast iron pan on hand – use it! if not, any regular one will do. first, start off by adding your olive oil to the pan over medium heat. once its hot, add your sausage and garlic and let it fry up for a bit, maybe 6-8 minutes. now, add your peppers and cherry tomatoes then pour your canned tomatoes over it. season with some salt and pepper, teaspoon of paprika, tablespoon of honey, pinch of red pepper flakes and give it a good mix around. once this is bubbly, turn the heat down to medium low and let it cook down and reduce, about 15 minutes. by now, about 1/3 of the liquid will be cooked off and you can add about half of your chopped cilantro.

now the fun part! add your eggs on top, however many you choose. just plop them wherever and let them cook like any old egg. i found this took longer than expected, so i covered the pan to make the eggs cook faster! this is a great time to toast up all of your dipping bread. when the eggs are just about done, add your cheese – i used boursin. sprinkle the rest of your cilantro over the top and let it cook a few more minutes until its semi melted and gooey. now take to the table and eat right out of the pan – but don’t burn yourself like i did:)
