  • 1 lb. red potatoes
  • 1/2 medium onion
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 3 Tablespoons heavy cream
  • 1 Tablespoon smoked paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes optional
  • 3-4 eggs
  • 1/4 cup blue cheese or any favorite cheese optional
  • Chives for on top


  • Preheat oven to 400F degrees.
  • Cut potatoes in half length wise and then each half lengthwise again. Slice into 1/2" pieces. Cut onion into chunks.
  • In a large baking dish (a pie plate or 11" quiche pan works great), add potatoes and onions. Mince garlic and add to pan along with the heavy cream, paprika, salt, and pepper flakes. Using your hands, toss everything together so the potatoes and onions are coated.
  • Bake for 10 minutes, stir and bake for another 10-15 minutes or until potatoes are tender.
  • Remove from oven and create a well in the center. Crack desired number of eggs in the middle and sprinkle cheese over eggs and potatoes. Return to oven and continue to bake until eggs are set, 8-13 minutes, depending on desired firmness of yolk. Just make sure the egg whites have set.
  • Remove from oven and sprinkle chives on top.
