Carla Makes Baked Eggs in Tomato | From the Test Kitchen | Bon Appétit

  • Published on Apr 20, 2019
  • Join Carla Music in the Bon Appétit Test Kitchen as she makes baked eggs in tomato. The trick is getting the eggs cooked so that the whites are set and the yolks are still jammy-starting with room temperature eggs is key, so soak them in hot water for a few minutes if they're cold from the fridge.

    In Turkey we call it Menemen and I loved it as a Kid and still love it. It was the only thing my father could cook😂. What we like to ad is sucuk (which is a spicy sausage) and then ad on top cheese. Some people also like to ad sweet chilli and onions. Thats the nice thing about it, you can do it as you want and like🥰. I loved how Carla called it pugatory, she is such a bundle of Joy 😁

    They mic'd the producer/director/camera man in this, and OH GOD does it make it HORRIBLE. Just shut up. I get it, others have done this cute, behind the camera person is a personality on the show kind of thing, but no, not here, not to my Carla.
    PS: Maybe we can get some production peeps, like editors, that actually like food? Seems they're constantly trying to me everything. And that's fine in some contexts! Other shows do that well! But it doesn't work with cooking, it doesn't work when you're trying to learn.

    She's confusing purgatory with hell. The eggs go to purgatory because they obviously haven't been baptized.

    In Iran we do a dish similar to this but it's more akin to an omelette and we cook it with saffron as well. It's so good, and this looks good too.

    I made a variation of this recipe as huevos rancheros with chile peppers, hatch chili powder, onion, green onions, tomatoes, and parsley (didn't have cilantro). And then I added some black beans cause I like black beans (sue me), and added the eggs the same way and served over toasted tortilla. It's amazing. Highly recommend trying this out if you want more spice.

    I decided to make this just after watching and it was very good! My only problem was not enough tomatoes, so the eggs were more fried than poached and there wasn't a whole lot of that tomato-y tang, but this is definitely one I'll come back to! I think next time though I'll try it with a few more spices to make it more like shakshuka.

    I didn't have everything on hand so I substituted a few things.
    Instead of olive oil I used heavy cream
    Instead of grape tomatoes I used just plain grapes
    I didn't have red pepper flakes so I crushed the red berries from a box of Cap'n Crunch
    I had eggs but they were hard boiled so I just dropped them in
    My kids cried when they saw it. My wife said something about me not peeling the eggs
    Then the local mental health department came and took me away..... again

    Growing up in a family of 8, dinners were naturally on the inexpensive side and large. Don''t know where it came from but, when my Mom had leftover spaghetti sauce she would poach eggs in it. They were served on toast topped with parmesan. If there's anything my ex's took away from our relationships it was this recipe. Now I'm teaching it to my grandkids.
