Doesn't this name sound cute for a dish? To me it sounds a little bit childish. Sort of like a name that a kid can come up with naming his favorite meal. However this breakfast dish is definitely the one for adults. With some spicy paper and occasionally meat too it is very flavorful and satisfying. It is good both for a crowd that stayed overnight and for a quiet breakfast for two. And it is very simple too. All you need is:

1 small onion
1 small Anaheim pepper or any other of your favorite.
salt and pepper to taste
1 tomato per person, piled
1 -2 eggs per person.
ground beef (optional)

On the picture you see it being done with some leftover meat from dolma stuffing that we ate the day before and scallions. But it will be just as delicious without any meat.
Start by sauteing onion and pepper in some oil. Make sure to season it with some salt and pepper. Once they are golden and soft add chopped tomatoes.. Let them cook for about 5 minutes until they are soft as well. Now it is time to crack the eggs. Feel free to swirl and turn the whites to ensure they are cooked but try to leave the yolks untouched since they will become your special treat to break on your place. You might want to cover the pan for a little bit to help the eggs cook but please watch it carefully in order not to overcook. Yolk has to stay soft.

Serve with lots of fresh soft bread since you would want to use it to clean the plates. Yumm!
P.S. Sorry for the quality of the picture. No time to stage the food. I can only take the picture while things are on the stove now. he-he
