So you’ve decided to have guests over for breakfast. Coolcoolcool. That’s brave or optimistic or bushy-tailed of you, or something. But whatever your motivation happens to be, you’ve invited other humans to your home in the morning and it is your duty to feed them. Dumping a box of energy bars on the table may seem efficient, but it’s not exactly hospitable—plus, you presumably actually like these folks. Serve a meal that keeps them smiling all day, without making you want to hide under the bed by 10 a.m.
Eggs might mess around with side chicks like Sriracha, ketchup, and salsa, but they’ll always run back to their soulmate: spicy tomato sauce. Eggs in Purgatory, a Mexican-inspired shakshuka, is anything but hellish. In fact, it’s damn heavenly. Don’t be put off by all the ingredients or having to use the broiler—it’s a simple process and well worth the 30 minutes it takes to make. Eggs are nestled in a cozy green bed of tomatillos, scallions, cilantro, and jalapeños.
