Eggs Baked in Chili Oil
with Dried Tomatoes and Oregano
“As we wake up and find our place in the world and get ourselves in tune with the world for that day, all of these sensory things really help start that story of the day. That first whiff of coffee grinding. The smell of toast toasting in the toaster—that warm bread smell.”
Here is another tasty recipe from Gregory, and this time it’s warm and savory — just in time for the chillier mornings. Try experimenting with other herbs and spices for your eggs!
