Low-Country Breakfast Comfort Foods to Snack on During America’s Favorite Parade!

Our breakfast snacks took on a low-country comfort food theme this year, starting with Clementine Mimosa’s.

Guests could pick out their clementine’s for their drink and they pulled the juice from the fruit with a hand-hand juicer!

My Sweet Potato Spoon Bread and Lamb Chops in fresh homemade mint sauce were the perfect accompaniments with “Eggs In Purgatory,” which I’d always wanted to try making! The eggs turned out beautifully and the dish added lots of great color to people’s plates.

Eggs In Purgatory

1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

1 red onion, diced

1 garlic clove, minced

2 fresh red bell peppers, diced

1 28-ounce can crushed tomatoes

1 28-ounce can whole peeled tomatoes, drained

1 dozen small eggs

1/4 teaspoon hot Hungarian paprika

1/2 teaspoon pink Himalayan sea salt

1/2 teaspoon freshly ground multi-color peppercorns

In a large saucepan over medium-high heat, saute the onions, garlic, and bell pepper until the onions become transluscent, about 8 minutes.

Add the canned crushed and whole tomatoes, and cook until the sauce is heated through completely, about 20 minutes. 

Crack each egg into a separate spot in the tomato sauce. If the sauce is good and hot, there is no need to create a small hole for the egg; they will start cooking right away. 

Cook until the eggs are cooked the way you like them- soft or hard. 

Sprinkle with salt and pepper, to taste. 

Garnish with a sprinkle of paprika and chopped fresh parsley.
