I haven't made this recipe but another one. Spicy Tomato Sauce with poached eggs is a Mediterranean staple for breakfast called "Shakshuka" served with Pita Bread or other bread to dip into the mixture.

Love this recipe, but actually this time of year you should be using canned tomatoes for the best flavor. It's not tomato season yet. July-October is when you're going to be getting decent fresh tomatoes.
