Eggs with Tomato-Pepper Sauce & Feta

As I practice alternate fasting days, I want the days when I do eat loaded with everything delicious.  This skillet egg concoction fills the bill perfectly.  Those of you who have followed my blogs for a while will notice this is yet another way to use the Roasted Tomato Sauce you put up last summer (if you have any left!).  This is also when I’m happy to have a well stocked pantry.  The roasted red bell peppers are a great marriage with the tomato sauce.  Add onions, garlic, za’atar, feta and eggs and you’re golden.  This works well in a 10-inch skillet for 2-4 eggs, or a 12-inch skillet as you increase the amount of eggs for a gathering.  The recipe below serves 2, but can easily be doubled or tripled.

DIRECTIONS:

  1.  Heat a 10 or 12 inch non-stick oven-proof skillet on medium-high.  Add olive oil and onion, saute until onion is soft and translucent about 3-4 minutes; add garlic saute for 1 minute more.
  2. Add tomato sauce and roasted bell peppers, and then sprinkle with za’atar.  Simmer until hot about 3-4 minutes more.  Meanwhile preheat broiler on high with oven rack about 4 inches below.
  3. With a silicone spatula, make wells in the sauce for your eggs.  Gently place an egg in each well.  Sprinkle with crumbled feta.  Place skillet under broiler for 2-3 minutes or until egg whites are set, but yolks are still loose.  Watch closely.
  4. Serve with minced fresh chives or parsley.

Serves 2
