Switch up your regular breakfast routine with Marinara Poached Egg. Poaching eggs in marinara is easy since the sauce is quite thick. The sauce gives so much more flavor to the eggs compared to the normal water-poaching method. Keep some toasted Italian or French bread handy – you will want to dip.
