Hard-boiled eggs in tomato sauce easy recipe


Hard-boiled eggs in tomato sauce easy recipe

Hard-boiled eggs in tomato sauce are a simple but really tasty Italian main course! In particular, it belongs to the tradition of Friuli, a region in the north of Italy where they are called ” eggs in funghetto”; as I said, it is a very simple recipe in which hard-boiled eggs become a real comfort food with the addition of a very tasty tomato sauce.

But I will give you a slightly different version of this typical Italian recipe, that of my grandmother Gina! She always prepared this dish for my sister and me when we were little, we loved them, and we still love them very much, so much so that this recipe has become part of our family tradition.

It is a really easy preparation, which is done in a short time, and which becomes a real dinner saver when you are in a hurry and the fridge is empty since very few ingredients are enough!

If you love eggs, I recommend other easy and tasty recipes such as devil eggs Italian version and eggs with peas.

But back to us, try to cook my wonderful grandmother Gina’s Hard-boiled eggs in tomato sauce following this easy step-by-step recipe, and don’t forget to make the “scarpetta” with the bread like a real Italian!
