    My spices must be to old; I had to add a mild hot sauce. But we liked it otherwise.

    Well i think its tasted quite bitter than u expect... Maybe we can add tomato sauce above all of the preparation... Idk just my idea.. I dont even know if i made it right

    It was delicious. I grated cheese on top of it which added to the flavor.

    Delicious!! Used Marinara sauce plus canned rotello chopped tomatoes with green chilis. Doubled the onions and garlic. Used Avocado oil. Loved it!!

    So good! Very simple recipe that’s sure to impress. It’s even better with a little bit of crumbled bacon or sausage mixed in. Be sure to serve it over grits or polenta, like the recipe says, to really complete the meal.

    This is a staple in our house. We also fry a bit of green peppers and cook with tomatoes. I wouldn't use cumin, or turmeric or onion. Italian way is simple.

    Fantastic. I adjusted the cayenne a bit for our tastes and added some jalepeno pepper. Will make again.

    Easy and tasty. I went too light on the spices but that's not the recipe's fault.

    Turned out great, followed recipie exactly except only put in 3 eggs was just right for 2 , just had it plain with sourdough toast no grits or anything.. used hunts fire roasted diced tomatoes with garlic so we didn’t add cloves

    Fantastic and Fast to prepare Eggs where hard to get in clean

    Nice! I followed the suggestion of adding black beans - a great idea. Ate it with pumpernickel bread. All in all, a very nice combination of spices. I'll make this again!
    Cendrine Pfister a year ago
    I put in a can of black beans to amp up the nutrition and opted out of the polenta and bread, super tasty! Will definitely make this again.

    This dish is absolutely amazing over toast and of course it is quite healthy besides maybe high salt content, consisting of mostly vegetables and eggs!

    My dish came out well, even though I overcooked the eggs and missed the garlic. Really easy to control the spice.

    Awesome dish, can change it up lots of ways
    Doofish a year ago
    The food was fantastic! I added a little extra on the spices and will add more garlic or try it with garlic bread next time.

    great dish. I put hash browns underneath the egg sauce and it worked out well. I had to estimate on the spice portions bc I had no measuring tools so it was a little off on that. Even so I still really enjoyed it.
