When it comes to a hearty, fast and easy Italian style breakfast, it does not get much better than eggs in purgatory. It’s called that because the eggs are gently poached in a fiery tomato sauce. It’s not quite as fiery as Fra Diavolo sauce though, which means the devil’s brother! My Nana Lulu loved to make it for us if we came over during the day. In Italy it’s more traditional to have it for lunch or even dinner since breakfast is usually a pastry with espresso. So it was a favorite lunch of my Nana’s. I made it over the weekend for brunch (which seemed like a happy medium between tradition and what my belly needed) and oh my goodness was it a hit!
