Servings 4


  • 1 cup fresh or cooked green beans cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 2 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 pounds boiling potatoes peeled and cut into 1/2-inch dice
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/8 tsp. crushed red pepper
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 pinch paprika optional


  • If using fresh green beans, cook in a large saucepan of boiling water until crisp-tender, about 3 minutes. Drain and refresh under cold running water.
  • Heat oil in a large nonstick or cast-iron skillet over medium heat until hot enough to sizzle a piece of potato. Spread potatoes in an even layer and cook, turning every few minutes with a wide spatula, until tender and browned, 15 to 20minutes for raw potatoes, 10 to 12 minutes for cooked. Stir in the green beans, garlic, crushed red pepper, salt and pepper.
  • Crack each egg into a small bowl and slip them one at a time into the pan on top of the vegetables, spacing evenly. Cover and cook over medium heat until the whites are set and the yolks are cooked to your taste, 3 to 5 minutes. Sprinkle the eggs with paprika, if desired, and serve immediately.
