NEW RECIPE: Eggs Poached in Marinara


Do you want to make breakfast that makes YOU look like the hero you’ve always known yourself to be? Yes. Yes, you do.

This recipe for Eggs Poached in Marinara is so simple, filling, and delicious, but it’s so filled with flavor, you would think you’re at the fanciest of brunches.

Feel free to do the following (or ignore the following):

  • Change out the sausage with whatever your fave kind is. If you use uncooked sausage, make sure you brown it all the way through before adding the marinara.
  • You can add fresh herbs and additional spices at any point, but you don’t need to. Eat Happy Kitchen marinara is seasoned to perfection so you don’t have to do anything to it to make it pop.
  • This dish is similar to Shakshuka, which you can easily create by adding sautéed onions, some cinnamon, nutmeg, cumin, and a dusting of ground cayenne.
  • If you are feelin’ cheesy, then by all means add your fave cheese or some freshly grated parmesan.
  • Make sure you use a large, deep sauté pan or a Le Creuset dutch oven.
