We really liked this dish with the fruity heat of Turkish Aleppo pepper, but you can substitute crushed red pepper.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat broiler to high.

Step 2

Heat a medium nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add oil to pan; swirl to coat. Add onion and minced garlic to pan; sauté 4 minutes. Add tomato paste; cook 1 minute, stirring constantly. Add wine; cook 1 minute or until liquid almost evaporates. Add sugar, salt, peppers, and tomatoes. Cover and reduce heat to medium; simmer 2 minutes. Crack eggs, 1 at a time, on top of tomato mixture. Cover and cook 5 minutes or until whites are set and yolks are soft.

Step 3

Place bread slices on a baking sheet; broil 1 1/2 minutes on each side or until toasted. Rub bread with halved garlic clove. Sprinkle 2 tablespoons cheese on each bread slice; broil 1 1/2 minutes or until cheese melts. Divide tomato mixture and eggs evenly among 4 shallow bowls. Serve with garlic toasts.

Good and filling

I made this for dinner last night, doubled the recipe for 6 of us. I gave the husband and my 17 yr son two servings and I went heavy on the tomatoes for myself. It was similar to a tomato soup and we loved the egg on top. I used crushed red pepper instead of the Aleppo.

Breakfast for dinner

We really liked this.  We try to eat super light a couple days a week and this made a delicious meal for few calories.  I made it exactly according to directions because I had all the ingredients.

Very good

Quick and easy meal.  I added some ground turkey and after the cheese melted on top sprinkled a few bacon bits on top and it was wonderful will do again..I also did mine in individual small bowls and set the bowl in a pot of bowling water for a few min to cook the eggs then added cheese and in the over for like 2 min.

very easy

Fairly quick and easy week day dinner.  Very nice in a cold wet day.  Sort of an upgraded tomato soup and grilled cheese meal.

I used sherry instead of red wine since that's what I had. I think that made it a bit sweet with the added sugar. We really liked it anyway, and I will make with red wine next time.
