A delicious, hearty breakfast is not complete without eggs- and quite a few of them I might add. Before making this dish, make sure you have a baguette on hand as you will want to use it to slop up all of the sauce. From the spicy tomato sauce, to the runny egg yolks, this recipe is very easy to make and a crowd pleaser. For a little bit of cheesy goodness, add some shredded Parmesan cheese. You won't be disappointed with this dish.
