My Eggs in Purgatory Skillet is a dish that's created to share with those whom you call family. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
Serves: 3
  • 1 large Spaghetti Squash
  • 1 cup of your favorite Pasta Sauce
  • 3 large Eggs
  • 8-10 slices of Dietz & Watson Uncured Applewood Smoked Ham
  • 1 tsp. Chili Flakes
  • ¼ cup Dietz & Watson Feta Cheese
  • 1 Avocado
  • Chopped Parsley
  • Toasted Baguette for serving
  1. Cook Spaghetti Squash: You can either cook the Spaghetti Squash in the oven or microwave. To make the best use of my time, I often microwave mine. Cut in half, scrape out the seeds and place upside-down on a microwave safe plate. Cover with plastic wrap and cook on high for 10-12 minutes, until fork tender.
  2. Heat up the Pasta Sauce: While the Spaghetti Squash cooks, bring Pasta Sauce to a simmer in a large oven-proof skillet.
  3. Preheat the oven: warm to 350F.
  4. Assemble the skillet: remove Spaghetti Squash threads from their shell and add to the tomato sauce. Create 3 wells in the mixture and crack an egg into each well. Place pan into the oven and let cook for 6-10 minutes, keeping a close watch so you do not overcook the eggs. Cook to your personal egg preference, but I do recommend serving this dish with over-easy eggs so you can mix the yolk into the sauce.
  5. Garnish & Enjoy: Sprinkle with Chili Flakes, Feta Cheese and Chopped Parsley. Then tuck Ham Slices, Avocado and Toasted Baguette around the edges. Eat immediately.
