  1. After rinsing and scrubbing your potatoes, use a chopping knife to dice them into small cube pieces.
  2. Drizzle olive oil into a medium skillet over medium heat. Once the oil begins to sizzle, add your potatoes, salt and pepper. Cover with a lid and reduce the heat to medium. Allow the potatoes to cook for roughly 8 to 10 minutes.


  1. Remove the lid and turn the potatoes. Add your chopped onions and peppers. Mix the contents. Place the lid on top and turn the heat down to medium-low. Allow the vegetables to sit for another 4 to 5 minutes.
  2. Once the potatoes begin to cook and slightly brown, remove the lid and add your oregano and thyme. Use a spatula to mix the contents entirely.
  3. Add ¼ cup of butter to a medium skillet and cook over medium heat. Tilt the pan to cover the entire skillet in melted butter. Once the butter begins to melt, carefully crack your eggs and add them to the skillet one by one.
  4. Cover your pan with a form-fitting lid and allow your eggs to sit for approximately 5 minutes. Remove the lid and wedge your spatula under the edge of the egg. Remove the egg and sprinkle with cheese.
  5. Add a spoonful of potatoes and several eggs onto each plate. Serve immediately.
