Eggs in Marinara or Spaghetti Sauce over Toasted Sourdough Bread
By: Angelina O.
San Andreas, California
Such a simple recipe, but one I loved and always had at my grandparents house on the weekends.
My grandfather owned a restaurant and always had leftover sauce in the refrigerator.
Eggs, Leftover spaghetti sauce or jarred marinara sauce, Crusty sourdough bread, sliced
Heat the sauce over medium heat in a pan. Crack open the eggs right into the sauce; you can do a few at a time if you space them far enough apart. Cover the pan and cook until the eggs are done to your liking. Serve one egg and about 1/4 - 1/2 cup of sauce over toasted sourdough bread. Delicious!
(I gotta say Angelina, That does sound delicious!)
Here's another one.
Guatemalan Chicken Soup
By: Sergio P.
1 Piece chicken breast-bone in, ½ cup uncooked Rice, salt to your discretion, (I put in about a small teaspoon's worth) 2 Entire medium sized tomatoes, 1 medium sized onion and a dash of Cilantro.
1. Boil chicken breast in a pot of water for 30-60mins. This will create the base for the soup. After chicken is cooked, remove, and strain while keeping the broth.
2. Afterwards, return chicken to broth and continue to boil. At this point, add salt to your discretion.
3. Add about a half a cup of rice. While the rice cooks, take this opportunity to dice the tomatoes and onion if you haven't already, as there will be a little downtime.
4. At this point, remove the chicken breast. Take off the skin and bone, and shred.
5. Once the rice is fully cooked, add the tomatoes, onion, shredded chicken, and cilantro. Cook for only a little bit more so the veggies absorb the broth but maintain they're crunchiness. And viola! Guatemalan Chicken Soup.
Background Story: I remember this recipe as it's how to cook a basic stew or soup of my people, who are from Guatemala originally. Since I was born in San Francisco, I didn't know much about my people's land until I went to my Grandma's house in Guatemala when I was 9.
Being the little devil I was, I loved playing with Guatemalan fireworks which resemble miniature sticks of dynamite. One morning, I was playing with the string of firecrackers and when it got to the biggest one, I flung it hastily to the right. To my horror, I saw a cloud of feathers fly up where I had flung it near the chicken pen.
All my grandmother found was a dead, almost fully plucked chicken and not being one to let anything go to waste, made chicken soup.
Not knowing I was the cause of her chicken's death, she served me a bowl which I could only look at in disgust.
Throughout the years, I've learned how to make the same soup, which is your average chicken soup with Central American broth.
(Sounds great Sergio and what a great story!)
