Baked Potato Shakshuka

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
  • ½ cup Guiding Star-worthy marinara sauce
  • 2 large eggs
  • Pinch of paprika


  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Broil 3 – 4 minutes or until the egg whites are set. Yolks will be runny: broil longer for more fully cooked egg.
  4. Sprinkle with the pinch of paprika and serve.
