What do you think of when you think of eggs? Is it breakfast? I would normally answer yes, but believe it or not, it wasn’t until I sat down to eat this tasty baked egg dish for dinner that I realized it would be probably be considered a breakfast recipe. Eggs aren’t just for breakfast anymore, friends!

This was my first time baking eggs. They cooked up great, but it’s a bit difficult to tell when they are done just by looking. You will want to check them with a little fork poke after 10 minutes to see if they are cooked to your liking. They don’t brown or anything, so they still look a bit undercooked even when they aren’t.

If you’re looking for a good potato side dish, you could make these roasted potatoes without the eggs. I love roasted potatoes with just about any meat, or just prepare a couple vegetables to go with them! They are a tasty and healthier alternative to fries.

  • Total Time: 55 minutes
  • Yield: 4 1x

Ingredients

Units Scale
  • 4 cups diced, unpeeled russet potatoes (about 2 large potatoes)
  • 1 green bell pepper diced
  • 12 ounces fully cooked sausage sliced into 1/4″ half circles
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt plus a pinch
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 48 eggs (12 per person depending on preference)
  • freshly ground black pepper

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Soak potatoes in water for 5 to 15 minutes, then drain and dry on paper towels. (I soak the potatoes while I do the rest of the chopping.)
  3. In a large bowl, toss together potatoes, bell pepper, sausage, olive oil, 1/2 tsp. salt, chili powder, and onion powder.
  4. Spray either 4 shallow bowls or a 13 x 9″ baking dish with cooking spray, and evenly spread potato mixture into your chosen dish(es). Bake uncovered in preheated oven for 30 minutes.
  5. Carefully remove from oven, and reduce heat to 350 degrees F. Crack eggs over the potatoes. Sprinkle a small pinch of kosher salt and black pepper over each egg. Return to hot oven, and bake for an additional 10-15 minutes, until yolk is cooked to desired doneness.

Fantastic recipe but I am allergic to bell peppers, so I used Greek Seasoning instead and it smelled and tasted heavenly. Definitely a keeper.

It was and we reheated the leftovers and served it on a warm tostada with Mexican cheeses sprinkled on top

Thank you so much, Krista! I especially appreciate that you like the photos because I got delayed when it was time to take these pictures, and I thought it didn’t look as pretty by the time I got back to it. Food blogging is so weird, isn’t it? :)

My husband loves eggs but I’ve never tried baking them yet either. I’ll bet he would love this dish, thanks for sharing Andi, this looks fantastic!

Thank you, Kelly! I have seen baked eggs on their own on Pinterest, but it was fun to incorporate them into a recipe like this.
