Eggs in purgatory. (Photo, Roberto Caruso.)
As our friend Nigella Lawson puts it, "Eggs in purgatory is absolute heaven when you're feeling like hell." Sounds like a great way to start the day. Hold the eggs very close over the tomato mixture before cracking them in.
, diced (about 2 cups)
, seeded and finely diced
, toasted (optional)
- HEAT a medium frying pan over medium. Add oil, then onion. Cook until onion starts to soften, about 3 min. Stir in jalapeno, garlic, paprika, cumin and salt. Cook 1 more min. Transfer to slow cooker insert along with tomatoes and tomato paste. Cover and cook for 8 hours on low.
- MAKE 6 wells in tomato mixture with the back of a spoon. Crack 1 egg into each well. Cover and increase heat to high. Continue cooking until eggs are done as you like, 15 to 25 more min. Sprinkle with parsley. Serve over toasted bread.
Our slow cooker recipes are developed with a 7 quart slow cooker.
