Eggs Marinara for dinner.....need I say more?!

So I saw this recipe from FOOD RENEGADE and just had to try it. It was so quick, easy, and delicious.This dish is great for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. So versatile! Love it.

Eggs Poached in Marinara

Whatcha Need-

•As many eggs from pastured hens as you want to serve.
•At least 1 c. of marinara or other favorite pasta sauce per egg (we used mushroom marinara).
•We added avocado on top and a little cheese (almond cheddar).

The How-To

In a deep dish skillet bring marinara sauce to a boil over medium heat. Reduce the heat to medium low so that the sauce is no longer bubbling. With a spoon, create “slots” for your eggs — tiny indentations in the marinara that will act like “bowls” in the sauce and hold your eggs in their places. Crack open one egg per slot. It should look something like this:






Try it and let me know what you think!

That looks REALLY good! It kind of looks like a huevos rancheros dish that is popular in New Mexico!

This looks really interesting. . . I eat eggs at least once a day. I am always looking for new ways to eat them. I will def try it out.
