3. Stir in cherry tomatoes and kalamata olives. Taste sauce and adjust seasonings if necessary.
4. Using the back of a spoon, make 2 wells and carefully crack the eggs in.
5. Transfer to oven on broil and cook anywhere from 5-7 minutes, until egg whites are set.
6. When eggs are done, remove from heat and add crispy salami, feta, more olives and fresh herbs.
7. Serve with fried halloumi cheese or bread.


*Crispy Salami: while sauce is simmering, using a separate skillet, cook salami slices until crispy over medium heat. This should take about 5 minutes. Transfer to paper towel and set aside.

*Fried Halloumi Cheese: using same skillet as salami, cook halloumi slice for about 3 minutes per side until outside is nice and brown.
