Bachelorette Eggs with broken yolks

Bachelorette Eggs

Serves one


This recipe is definitely my go-to when my partner in crime is away. I have a host of recipes for one that makes cooking easy but these Bachelorette Eggs are by far my favourite. Comforting, filling, flavoursome, easy and hearty – this one ticks all the boxes for me!

Enjoy! JC x


1 tbs olive oil

1 – 1.5 cups Passata sauce

2 eggs

¼ garlic clove thinly chopped

A generous bunch of your favourite green herb, chopped (Dill, Basil, Rosemary, Parsley, etc)

Water to dilute the Passata sauce

1 large tomato, diced

1-2 tbs parmesan

2-4 slices of your favourite bread, toasted and buttered

Salt and Pepper



Add the olive oil to a small to medium sized frying pan over medium heat


Once the olive oil has warmed up add the garlic, as well as some salt and pepper and begin to fry


Once the garlic turns a golden colour add the diced tomato


As the tomato begins to cook add enough passata to almost cover the base of the frying pan


Allow to simmer, then once it starts boiling add a little water to start diluting the passata


Once the sauce begins to simmer again taste it and add more water if necessary (if sauce is too tart)


Once you achieve a sauce flavour to your liking, crack the eggs one by one into the sauce and add a lid to the frying pan


Allow the eggs to cook the way you like, I prefer mine runny so I leave them for a little over 5 minutes so they stay soft


As soon as they’ve cooked sprinkle the dish with your favourite herb/s then start to toast and butter your bread


This dish is one of those comfort meals that you shouldn’t eat from anywhere else besides the pan. Get into it!!

Notes: This is optional but I love to add a few cubes of semi-hard goats cheese into the sauce about 5-10 minutes before the dish is cooked. It is a nice surprise to uncover the melted cheese cubes as you eat your way through!
