Follow our recipe below to learn how to make potato and egg gnocchi!


  1. Cook the gnocchi according to the package. The gnocchi is done when they float to the surface.
  2. Add the olive oil and butter to a large skillet and put it over medium heat. Add the garlic, sage, parsley, thyme, and rosemary. Saute the garlic and herbs until the garlic begins to brown.
  3. As the gnocchi finish cooking, scoop them out of the boiling water with a slotted spoon and add them to the skillet.
  4. Once all of the gnocchi are in the skillet, drain the water. Turn up the heat on the skillet and cook the gnocchi, letting them get browned.
  5. Make four indentations in the gnocchi. Crack an egg into each one and season the eggs with salt and pepper. Cover the skillet and let the eggs cook on medium heat until the whites are set. The yolk should still be a little runny.
  6. When the eggs are finished cooking, divide the gnocchi among four plates with an egg for each. Sprinkle each dish with the parmesan cheese and serve.
