About the music:
It doesn’t matter whether it’s a strange Saturday morning or a late Monday night, this mix is tuned into those moments of solitude where the pantry options are slim but the smooth sounds of Al Green take you to your happy place, then The Postal Service makes it all ok, and YACHT brings you roaring home making you realize that walking alone is awesome, cause you’re awesome.
Prep time: 10 minutes
tomato sauce (homemade or in a jar)
Italian seasonings to taste
3 oz mozzarella, sliced
pinch of cayenne pepper
1-2 slices fresh bread
salt and pepper to taste
parmesan cheese to taste
If you are under the impression that the idea of poaching an egg in marinara sauce is weird, join the club. But by god I was made a believer. This recipe is for all those 20 year old dudes who want to make something other than Ramen, but are too lazy to leave their house to buy anything. It also happens to be the bomb.
To get started, heat your tomato sauce in a skillet, not a saucepan because you are poaching your eggs in here in a hot second. Feel free to mix in any ingredients you so desire, we added some jalapeños and cayenne pepper to spice it up a bit. You can also add cumin, parsley, oregano, onion, bacon… etc. When your sauce starts to simmer
do a Michael Jackson move turn the heat to low. Now crack an egg right on top of the simmering sauce. Cover the pan and simmer for about 4 minutes or until the egg is poached (or the length of this Beck song). You should be able to tell by looking at it.
While the egg is poaching, toast your bread, stick it in a bowl and top with sliced mozzarella.
Carefully spoon the egg onto the bread along with your desired amount of sauce, top with basil, do a victory dance to this YACHT song, and you’re done. Heady.
