Poached eggs in a tomato deliciousness

Updated: Apr 16, 2020

This is such a yummy dish, we ended up having it for dinner cause I wanted something quick and easy.

There are many names for this, but this is my version :)


1 chopped red onion

½ red pepper/capsicum or 1 whole one if its small

2 cloves of crushed garlic

1 teaspoon origanum

1 tablespoon of balsamic vinegar

½ red/green chilly (optional)

1 teaspoon of sugar (optional)

1 tin of chopped tomatoes

5 Eggs

chopped parsley


In a large frying pan: (if you have one or you can use a small frying pan just reduce number of eggs)

Add chopped red onion and fry in a bit of olive oil on a low heat.

After about 10 minutes, add chopped garlic.

Keep stirring so it doesn't burn.

Add red peppers/capsicum, chilly and balsamic vinegar.

Add origanum.

Once soft add the tin of tomatoes. Stir everything together. Add 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon black crushed pepper. If the tomato chutney is too thick add a little water. Make little pockets in the pan and break the eggs in it. I managed to fit 5 eggs in my frying pan.

Cover the pan and cook until the eggs are to your liking on a low heat.

Try not to cook for more than 7 minutes, or the eggs become over cooked as I have learnt a few times :).

Once cooked add chopped parsley and feta cheese. Enjoy with a few slices of toast bread.
