    1      small         green bell pepper -- finely chopped
    2      cloves        garlic -- finely chopped
    1      cup           tomatoes, canned -- drained and chopped
                         or prepared tomato sauce
      1/2  cup           pimiento -- drained
                          -- finely chopped
    2      tablespoons   dry sherry
                         salt -- to taste
                         fresh ground black pepper -- to taste
                         -----EGGS-----
    8      large         eggs
    4      tablespoons   butter -- salted
                         salt -- to taste
                         fresh ground black pepper -- to taste
    1      tablespoon    chopped parsley -- finely chopped
                          -- for garnish
 
 Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  In a medium-size skillet over low heat, heat the
 oil until it is fragrant, then cook the onion, bell pepper, and garlic,
 stirring, until tender, 8 to 10 minutes.  Add the tomatoes, pimientos, and
 sherrty, cook until thickened, 15 minutes, and season with salt and pepper.
 
 Lightly oil 4 ramekins or au gratin dishes and divide th sauce among them.
 For each dish, break two eggs into a saucer, slide them on top of the tomato
 mixture, and drizzle with 1 tablespoon melted butter.
 
 Bake until the whites are set and the yolks are still soft, 10 to 12 minutes.
 Sprinkle with salt, pepper, and parsley, and serve immediately from the baking
 dishes.  (Place each on a serving plate, to protect the table).

 NOTES : “For a spectacular bruch dish for a crows, bake single eggs in
 nonstick muffin tins, carefully invert the hot molded eggs onto a serving
 platter, and spoon the sauce over them.”
