Basque Eggs With Ham, Tomatoes And Peppers Preparation
Heat oil in large heavy skillet over medium heat. Saut onion 5 minutes, until softened; add garlic and cook 1 minute more. Add roasted peppers, tomatoes, and cayenne. Cover and cook 10 minutes, until vegetables are very soft, stirring occasionally. Uncover and simmer over medium heat until sauce is thick, about 10 minutes, stirring often.

Comments: The trick to this dish is to reduce the tomato mixture to thick sauce that won't break and liquefy when added to the eggs. If you've never made scrambled eggs this way before, youre in for a treat. Steady, slow cooking turns them incredibly creamy.
