4 servings (serving size: 1 bread slice, 3/4 cup vegetable mixture, and 1 egg)

Eggs gently cook atop a savory mixture of onion, bell pepper, tomatoes, and artichoke hearts in this version of pipérade. Served over toasted bread, it makes a filling one-dish meal.

How to Make It

Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion, bell pepper, and garlic; sauté 5 minutes. Add cumin and paprika; sauté 1 minute. Reduce heat to medium; stir in tomatoes, black pepper, and artichokes. Cook 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Form 4 (3-inch) indentations in vegetable mixture using the back of a spoon or bottom of a large custard cup. Break 1 egg into each indentation. Cover and cook 8 minutes or until eggs are done. Sprinkle with parsley, olives, and cheese. Serve over bread.

Thought we'd love this, but it was not that great. The cumin and paprika are wrong--basil and oregano make more sense. The problem, though, was the crushed tomatoes which are bitter and flavorless unless cooked into a long-simmering sauce. I actually had to add sugar to make this edible! This would be so much better with diced tomatoes, perhaps fire-roasted,and some added greenery like fresh spinach or arugula slivered on top.

This is a very easy dish. Make the sauce ahead of time and poach the eggs just before serving. I served on puff pastry shells sprinkled with a lot of parmesan and pepper before baking. The shells can also be made a day ahead. Very tasty, just remember to salt and pepper to taste and use a good aged parmesan to spinkle on the top. Perfect for brunch.
