Mario Batali's Eggs in Hell
New Year Noms
Celebrity chef and "The Chew" co-host Mario Batali runs a global restaurant empire for a reasonâ€”the man makes good food. Start your New Year off right with one of his recipes for eggs in hell.
In a 12- to 14- inch cast iron skillet, combine olive oil, onion and chilis and cook over medium heat until just wilted, about 1 minute to keep some bite to the onions and freshness to the chiles.
Add tomato sauce, and bring it to the boil. Then turn the heat down to a simmer.
Carefully crack the eggs into the pan, keeping them whole and separated. Cook until the whites have set but the yolk is still runny, 4 to 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
The eggs can be served at the table directly from the skillet. Serve the eggs with a few Gaeta olives strewn over top. Tear the basil leaves and sprinkle them over the eggs with freshly grated cheese and a tiny drizzle of extra-virgin olive oil.
