- 1 can (28 ounces) whole plum tomatoes
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- Pinch of crushed red pepper flakes
- Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
- 4 large eggs
- 4 slices toasted country bread, for serving
- Freshly grated Parmesan cheese, for serving
Transfer tomatoes and their juices to the jar of a blender. Blend until tomatoes are coarsely chopped; set aside.
In a small skillet, heat olive oil over medium-high heat. Add garlic and crushed red pepper; cook, stirring, until lightly browned, about 1 minute. Add tomato sauce and bring to a boil; season with salt and pepper. Reduce heat to a simmer and cook for 20 minutes.
Gently crack eggs into tomato mixture, cover, and let cook 5 minutes. Remove skillet from heat, uncover, and let stand 2 to 3 minutes.
Transfer each egg to a piece of toast. Spoon over sauce, garnish with cheese, and season with salt and pepper; serve immediately.
