Let’s start 2020 with a Meatless Monday recipe!

This simple potato dinner is incredibly easy to make. You can bake the potatoes in the microwave to save time, then assemble the marinara, parsley, and eggs and pop everything under broiler for five minutes and dinner is  ready!

Ingredients for each serving

  • 1 potato, baked
  • 1/2 cup marinara sauce
  • Pinch of cayenne
  • 1 large egg
  • Olive oil
  • Salt to taste
  • Snipped parsley (optional)


  1. Using a knife, cut the potato in half lengthwise. Place on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Using a fork, generously fluff the inside of the potato, careful not to tear the skin.

  2. Divide the marinara sauce between the potato halves. Add a pinch of cayenne pepper to each. Using a fork, work the marinara into the potato, adding more as needed so the potato halves are generously filled. Create a well in the center of the marinara sauce.

  3. Crack the egg into a small dish. Gently slide it into the well. Drizzle over olive oil. Broil potatoes 3 to 4 minutes or until the egg whites are set and yolks are thickened but still runny.

  4. Remove the potatoes from the oven and season with salt. Top with parsley.
