Eggs in Purgatory is a spicy, Southern Italian Shakshuka dish. It’s key ingredients are eggs (of course) extra virgin olive oil, garlic, anchovies, tomato sauce, and mozzarella cheese. The name originates from the Catholic faith, with the baked eggs represented “the soul” and the tomato sauce “Purgatory.” Supposedly, the souls are suspended between heaven and hell.
