#4: Breakfast of Champions

Two egg posts in a row: allowed?
Regardless, here it is. Instead of trekking down the street to Tom's Diner for greasy eggs and potatoes, I'll keep the 6 bucks and make my own feast right after I unnecessarily move my car for street cleaning (which apparently doesn't happen on Sukkot?)... yeah.
Two eggs over easy served atop raw tomato sauce with rosemary homefries. And toast with chevre.

If you're cooking for one, which I am still doing, you will need:
Olive oil
1 small onion
2 small potatoes of any kind (I used the last of my Carolas)
*optional washed spinach leaves*

2 small (although sold as "large") eggs

RAW TOMATO SAUCE: 1 blanched tomato+2 cloves garlic+pinch salt in the blender/food processor


In small pan on medium heat, heat a bit of olive oil. Add onions. Cook 5 min. Add potatoes, salt, rosemary to taste. Cook until potatoes are done. If using spinach, throw it into the pan just as the potatoes are finishing and let it cook down. Dump potatoes out onto plate.
In same pan, melt butter.
Crack your eggs. Cook until whites are set, then carefully turn over. Over easy is the best way. Period.
Pour a puddle of tomato sauce onto plate next to potatoes. When eggs are done, serve atop tomato sauce. Season with salt and pepper. Eat with toast. Yum.
