"Although I cannot lay an egg, I am a very good judge of omelettes."
-George Bernard Shaw
I had a version of this in a Middle Eastern restaurant. It is a great dish and you can make a big pot of the sauce and reheat it later. Instead of brown rice, this would be great with drained and rinsed chick peas in the bottom of the dish (1/2 of a 15-ounce can per serving), topped with the sauce and then the eggs.
Cayenne is a species of extremely hot chili pepper. It is small to medium sized (about 2 - 5 inches long) and bright red. Most cayenne grown today is dried and ground into cayenne pepper. Buy ground cayenne in small amounts so that it doesn't lose its fresh flavor. As it ages, it turns from a bright pepper red to a duller brownish red.
