Day 3: Eggs in Hell

Ummmm this may not be the MOST Christmas-y sounding dish but, it’s so hearty and the spicy tomato sauce promises to warm you up in no time! This is a great breakfast for an extra cold Christmas morning, but be warned if you’re not into spicy you may want to skip this one…


  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 3 garlic cloves, diced
  • 2 jalapeño peppers, seeded and diced
  • 1 tsp chilli flakes
  • 1 jar tomato sauce (I used Classico but you could make your own – try this recipe for a quick tomato sauce!)
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 loaf fresh crust bread


  1. Add olive oil to a frying pan and place over heat.  Once the pan is warm add in onions, garlic, jalapeños and chilli flakes.  Cook until tender (5 min!)
  2. Add tomato sauce and bring to a boil.
  3. Reduce heat slightly and add eggs.
    • *NOTE: I used the back of a big serving spoon to make a small dent in the sauce to cradle the eggs to keep it more concentrated.
  4. Cover with tinfoil and cook for 4 minutes, until egg whites are cooked through.  I like to cook my eggs over medium for this.  Most people leave the yolk runny but I find you miss out on texture that way.
  5. Once cooked to your liking finish with salt and pepper and serve the sauce and the eggs with torn pieces of fresh bread.
