Baked Eggs with Colombian-Style Tomato and Onion Sauce (Huevos Con Hogao)
- 1 cup cooked hogao
- 2 large eggs
- Fresh cilantro for garnish
- 2 arepas for serving
- Heat the broiler to high.
- On the stove heat a small oven proof dish over medium-low heat. Add ¼ cup of the hogao and crack one egg into the hogao.
- Carefully add another ¼ cup of the remaining hogao over the whites of the eggs. Cover the dish and cook for 2 minutes. Uncover the dish and set under the broiler until the yolks are cooked, but soft. About 2 more minutes.
- Remove the dish from the oven. Sprinkle cilantro and serve immediately.
Huevos pericos or scrambled eggs with tomato and scallion sauce, is a traditional Colombian breakfast. I was craving these eggs this morning but I wanted to make them a little different yet with the same delicious taste of the tomato and onion. So, I decided to make a hogao, which is a Colombian tomato and onion sauce, and cook a whole egg, instead of scrambled, in the hogao and serve it with arepa. Well, the variation turned out well. It was a great breakfast!

This looks awesome! 🙂 A great breakfast!
Lovely presentation. Looks Delicious!
This does look interesting, but I was just looking for a particular recipe and can't seem to find it Huevos Bedicos, something my ex-wife used to make, basically it's just eggs with chopped up tomatoes and green pepper and mushroom, but I'm not 100% sure how she made it. I know it's a very traditional colombian recipe, her entire family was from Bogota where my dad's family is from Medellin
"Hogao" is actually short for "ahogado", or "drowned" eggs! I had this dish a lot when I lived in Acapulco!
