hard-boiled eggs with garlic & herb spaghetti sauce

after almost 2 months after my extraordinaire childbirth and not cooking, today, i decided to cook this very simple dish. i got it from feast asia months before i gave birth; i wasn't able to cook it since kim is not an egg-fan. today, kim went to grocery after work and arrived home a bit late already and makuy was asking me to cook since he's hungry already. hmmmm... what i had were 3 hard-boiled eggs. so what i did was re-heat the spaghetti sauce and add the hard-boiled eggs. fortunately, makuy liked it, he ate almost 2 eggs. hehehe...

the recipe is here. i just used garlic and herbed spaghetti sauce; however, you can opt to use other 'style' of spaghetti sauce or tomato sauce. but i'd like to try miss connie's chili tomato sauce next time.

3 hardboiled eggs, shell removed
1 cup garlic & herbs spaghetti sauce
1/4 cup cheese, grated

heat about 2 cups of cooking oil in a wok. when the oil is smoking, add the hard boiled eggs and fry over very high heat until the egg whites are lightly browned in spots and blistered. remove eggs and drain on paper towel.

in a sauce pan, heat about 1 tbsp. of cooking oil and then pour in the spaghetti sauce. coook, stirring, for a few minutes or until very fragrant. add the cheese then add the eggs. lower the heat, cover and simmer for a few minutes.

transfer eggs to a plate then pour over with the sauce. sprinkle with chopped onion leaves.
