Eggs in Purgatory

Who could resist a dish with that title?

Last week, I treated myself to the latest issue of the Food Network Magazine. I'd never seen it before on my local magazine shelves, and I was intrigued. Overall, it was OK but not something I'd go out of my way to purchase again. It did have an interesting section called "50 Things to Make With a Jar of Pasta Sauce" and this dish with the cool title caught my eye - purely because of the title. So, I made it for dinner the other night.

And it was good! It was strange, but it worked!

Eggs in Purgatory

1 cup pasta sauce
2 eggs

Really, this is ridiculously easy: simmer the sauce in a frying pan until bubbly, then add eggs and cook to desired doneness. (I like a runny yolk.) Sprinkle with a bit of cheese. I covered the eggs with a lid to keep the heat it because this actually took longer to cook than I was expecting. I served it over penne, but you don't have to; you can have it on its own or with some crusty bread, or whatever.

Bon appetit!

I'm glad you reviewed this mag. I was wondering if I should buy it. Now I will pass. Thanks.

I quite liked the magazine! I have made a few recipes out of it (Cat Cora's baked fried chicken was to die for) and they've been pretty good.

Best egg recipe ever (it's Giada) - grill a rib eye steak...fry an egg (leave the yolk runny). Put the egg on top of the steak and a bit of crumbled goat cheese and voila....a little bit of heaven :)

Cathy: I saw that Cat Cora recipe. I'll take another look at it. As for Giada's steak recipe, that sounds amazing! Do you know what book of hers that's in, or is the recipe online somewhere?
