Heavy on protein and a bit of fat, this meal is one of my favorite practical recipes. It's similar to the Turkish recipe menemen and goes great at any time of the day.

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Melt butter in a skillet over low heat for 1 minute. Pour in diced tomatoes and cook, mixing once a minute, for 4 to 5 minutes. Stir in jalapenos and cook until they have softened, about 3 minutes. Season with salt and pepper and mix to combine. Cook for 3 more minutes. Crack eggs into the middle of the mixture in the pan, resulting in a 'plus' shape of eggs surrounded by tomatoes. Cover and simmer for 10 minutes.

  • Turn off heat and add Parmesan cheese. Season with cayenne pepper and cover. Let rest for 1 minute, or until the eggs are solid enough to stick together.

  • Serve with celery sticks as a garnish.
