    uova al purgatorio e tortino di patate al gorgonzola 010

    This is a dish that I have to eat alone, because I love it and I have no restraint!
    Ingredients for 4 people
    For eggs in purgatory: 4 eggs, 300 gr. Canned tomatoes, 3 onions, basil, olive oil,salt and pepper
    For the cake: 4 large potatoes, 150 gr. Gorgonzola cheese, salt
    Boil the potatoes and when well cooked, peel and break them coarsely with a fork. Mix with gorgonzola cheese into cubes, season with a little ’salt. Put the mixture into a baking pan with nonstick paper, adjusting it without crushing it.Bake at 180 degrees for about 30 minutes (must be dry and crunchy!).
    In the meanwhile in a skillet with oil, cook the onion thinly sliced​​, stretch with water if necessary. When soft add tomatoes and continue cooking for 10 minutes. Add salt and pepper, and create small holes where you’re going to break eggs. Cover with a lid and cook for 4-5 minutes on low heat. Before serving, put the basil on top.

When set add them to the foam of egg yolks, being careful to stir the mixture from the bottom to the up. And now also add the whipped egg whites, always making sure to mix from the bottom up.
