  • 1 yellow onion , chopped
  • 2 Tbsp oil
  • 24 oz can fire roasted tomatoes
  • 1 cup roasted red peppers , chopped
  • tsp salt

  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • ½ tsp cumin
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • ½ tsp chili powder
  • 5-6 eggs
  • feta cheese , crumbled
  • bread of choice*, naan, or pita


  • Heat oil in a deep pan and cook chopped onions on medium heat until translucent* About 5 minutes
  • Meanwhile drain jarred peppers from oil and chop up
  • Once onions are done cooking, add the rest of the sauce ingredients and seasoning and stir. Once sauce starts to bubble, reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer until thickened. About 15 minutes
  • Once sauce is reduced and thick enough, create little dips or wells in the sauce for your eggs. Crack eggs in the wells, sprinkle with salt and pepper, and cover. Cook until egg whites are no longer translucent
  • Sprinkle on feta cheese, toast bread or warm up pita, and serve in a bowl


* You want to use a crusty, sturdy bread that will be able to scoop up the sauce and egg
** If you are using fresh bell peppers, add them in here. If you are using jarred roasted red peppers, they can be held off til later
