This recipe is similar to an Italian recipe translated as "eggs in purgatory." This can be a delicious dinner recipe, or served for brunch. The eggs are cooked in a sauce of tomatoes, green peppers, onions, olives and cheese.

DIRECTIONS

Heat oil; add onion, green pepper, and garlic; cook gently about 5 minutes. Blend in flour. Drain tomatoes; add tomatoes to onion mixture; cook over low heat, stirring for about 3 minutes. Add seasonings; cook 5 minutes. Discard garlic; turn tomato mixture into shallow baking dish. Make 6 depressions in tomato mixture; drop an egg carefully into each. Dot sauce between eggs with cheese cubes and olives. Bake at 350° about 12 minutes or until eggs are set. Top each egg with anchovy fillet. Makes 6 servings.
