This variation on a classic middle east breakfast is simple, hearty, and filling. Broiling the eggs tends to lead to a soft set. If you like having more control over how firm your eggs are, heat the sauce to simmering in a small pan and poach the eggs directly in the sauce to desired texture before topping hot potatoes with eggs and sauce alike.
- 1 large russet potato, baked and halved
- 1/2 c. marinara sauce (3 Guiding Stars)
- 2 eggs
- Pinch of paprika
- Place warm potato halves on a parchment-lined baking sheet. If you’re using refrigerated potatoes, heat in the microwave for a minute or so to warm. Use a fork to fluff the inside of the potato without breaking the skin.
- Divide the marinara sauce between the potato halves and mix together a bit. Make a well in the center of the sauce and crack an egg into it.
- Broil 3 – 4 minutes or until the egg whites are set. Yolks will be runny: broil longer for more fully cooked egg.
- Sprinkle with the pinch of paprika and serve.

During the holidays, we gather with friends and family to lavish each other with love...often in the form of food. As much as we all enjoy the sweets this time of year, they can be rough on our systems. That's true of everyone, but especially true of people with conditions like diabetes who need to watch their food carefully to manage their blood sugar safely. This year, why not show your love by adding in one or two options to help your guests manage their health?
