This Breakfast Bolognese is a go-to regardless of whether you’re searching for the perfect savoury Sunday brunch or more of a “eat-whatever’s-left-over-from-the-night-before”. There’s just something about the way the egg yolks break and combine with the really hearty, tomato-based sauce – it gets us every time!

Add balsamic vinegar and season with salt and pepper according to taste.

7

Create four hollows in the bolognese mixture and drop an egg in each hollow.

Keeping pan on a low-medium heat, cover pan with lid until the eggs are cooked through but yolks still runny.

It takes longer to poach the eggs in the bolognese mixture than poaching in water so patience is essential.
