baked eggs in spicy tomato sauce for two

Runny eggs, buttery crunchy toast, spicy tomato sauce, and fresh basil. Is there anyway that combination could NOT be good? Let me tell you it was delicious. We had this for breakfast but I think it’d be perfect for dinner too. Who doesn’t love breakfast for dinner? It was super filling and the toast dipped into the eggs and tomato sauce with just a little hint of basil was divine. Try it tomorrow morning, it’s a great way to start your day!
