Deliver Ingredients


  • 2 potatoes, peeled and diced
  • Olive oil
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 Pinch of cayenne pepper
  • 1 Tablespoon white wine vinegar
  • 8 eggs


Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Toss the potatoes with olive oil, salt, pepper, and cayenne pepper. Spread the potatoes on a foil-lined baking sheet and roast for about 20 minutes or until tender. 

Bring a pot of water to a rolling boil and add the vinegar. Place the eggs in the boiling water and cook for four to six minutes, depending on how runny you like your egg. Immediately remove the eggs from the water and place in a bowl of ice water. Once cool enough to handle, peel the shell. Place the eggs on top of the prepared potatoes or toast and enjoy.

Egg Shopping Tip

The fresher the better. Eggs in supermarkets don't even have half the flavor of fresh eggs. Try to make some time and head to the nearest farmer's market and treat yourself to some farm fresh eggs. They may be pricier but you get every cent back in flavor and a golden orange yolk.

Egg Cooking Tip

With eggs, cooking at a low temperature is almost always preferred. It allows the eggs to keep better texture. Also if you ever mix your uncooked and hard boiled eggs, do not fret. A trick to distinguish the two is a spin on the counter top. Hard boiled eggs will spin with ease while uncooked eggs won't get any momentum.
