Cut up any large pieces of tomato. In a 10-inch skillet combine stewed tomatoes, tomato sauce, garlic, bay leaf, and pepper. Bring to boiling. Reduce heat and simmer, covered, for 5 minutes. Discard bay leaf.
Stir in peas. Break 1 egg into a small dish and carefully slide into the simmering tomato mixture. Repeat with remaining eggs, allowing each egg an equal amount of space. Arrange sausage slices or ham strips around eggs.
Cover; simmer over low heat about 5 minutes or until eggs reach desired doneness. Serve eggs and sauce over muffin halves or slices. Makes 4 servings.
