About this recipe:This recipe is a perfect “pick me up” when you need something warm and comforting, it’s as far from “fine dining” as you can get, it’s wet, sloppy, requires lots of bread for mopping and is the perfect cure for a bad mood. There’s no way to dress it up, it’s simple, rustic and soooooo delicious.

4 eggs – I prefer cornfed
1 small onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, chopped

Method Prep:10min › Cook:25min › Ready in:35min
Fill the base of a frying pan with oil, add your onions and garlic and cook over a low heat for 7-10 mins until soft but not coloured.
Add your tomatoes and cook for 10 mins until starting to thicken, season, add your sugar and basil and cook for a couple of minutes.
Crack your eggs directly into your sauce; cover and cook until the white is cooked and the yolk is soft and runny. Season and sprinkle with Parmesan. Serve with crusty bread or left over mash and enjoy the childish fuzzy feeling of breaking the egg!
