Eggs Diavolo

eggs diavolo Audrey'sThe other week I had a full crate of Ontario tomatoes. I decided to make this simple roasted tomato sauce. The sauce is wonderful and works perfectly on pasta. However, I also had a craving for eggs baked in tomato sauce and this recipe came together really easily. A few great ingredients and we had a perfect weekend breakfast – just a little ‘diavolo’ heat for me, and a lot of ‘diavolo’ heat for my husband.

Eggs Diavolo


  • 3 cups of good quality tomato sauce
  • 2 teaspoons of chili
  • 2 teaspoons of cayenne pepper
  • 1 teaspoon of paprika
  • 4 eggs
  • Parmesan
  • 2 cups of baby spinach or arugula
  • Red pepper flakes (optional)
  • Hot sauce (optional)


  1. Add tomato sauce to small/medium frying pan. Heat on medium heat. Season to 'diavolo' level you like with chili, cayenne and paprika.
  2. Once sauce is gently bubbling, crack all four eggs into the sauce. Cover with lid and let cook about 3-5 minutes, depending on how well done you want your eggs. Remove lid and serve immediately with shavings of parmesan, greens and added spice (red pepper flakes and hot sauce).
  3. Serve with bread to soak up all the saucy goodness.
