Coddled eggs are a fantastic way to feed a group of people soft, runny eggs. This recipe adds multiple peppers for spice and acidity.

Focaccia is an excellent bread to serve with coddled eggs because you can slice it into long strips, making them ideal for dipping and soaking up all the spicy creamy yolk at the bottom of the eggs. If you're in a pickle and want a really fast brunch, pick up a bag of pizza dough at the grocery store and drizzle it with olive oil, salt, and some herbs for quick makeshift focaccia.
