One should say that purgatory and eggs in purgatory have been a part of All hallow's eve and Hallowe'en since the 740's. Yes, that is over 1200 years ago. Most people could not afford meat and used eggs instead. Cattle were for milk and farm work Chickens for eggs. Sheep were for clothing when not in abundance. Pigs were a luxury.

Step 4: Purgatory.
Now we want to crack an egg (room temperature) into a bowl. then take the egg with any eggshells removed and pour into the the pan gently as you would poach an egg. Essentially that is what you doing anyway. Let cook eggs cook until the transparent part of the eggs become firm and white.
Step 5: Toast Me.
While the eggs are poaching toast up some bread about one slice per egg.
Step 6: Plating.
lay out a piece of toast. Cover with a slabe of the tomato/egg and peas. I also added a salad and a piece of extra toast to soak up the extra sauce. For a change I used cheddar cheese to top, but you can you what you prefer or available. Also pictured is the dish when I first made it.
