Step 1

Pour enough olive oil in to a heavy frying pan to cover the base. Place over a moderate heat and then carefully break the eggs into it. Fry as usual, spooning hot oil over the eggs to help them set.

Step 2

When they are almost half-cooked, add the chilli, cumin and garlic to the pan and continue cooking until the white is set.

Step 3

Lift the eggs out on to the bread, together with the bits of chilli and garlic, and then spoon over a little of the oil. Drizzle over the balsamic vinegar, season with salt and scatter over lots of chopped coriander. Eat immediately.

Stunning flavors that enliven the pallet! So simple to put together too. We enjoyed them as breakfast for dinner with a side of bacon and French Toast. Very well enjoyed. Thank you, Marra, for sharing!

Wow. Wow. Wow. Never in my wildest dreams could I dream up this combo. The flavors here are awesome, and in fact I've already made these three times (I had some leftover oil). The sauce with the runny yolks is to die for. Thanks for sharing - this is going in my Best Of file!

I partly decided to make this b/c I love balsamic vinegar --- and I forgot to add it! Ahhh! But despite that, I loved this version of eggs with lots of red pepper! Kind of sautéed it all together with some left over egg yolks from another project.

Great tasting eggs. Wonderful Sunday Brunch. All the liitle additions (chili, cumin, balsamic & cilantro) all added to the enjoyment. This recipe will be mde again for sure. 15 Nov 15 Made again and enjoyed just as much. I did overcook my eggs so they weren't runny like I like them but they tasted great anyway.
