Prep Time 3 minutes
Cook Time 12 minutes
Total Time 15 minutes


  • 2-3 cups Mashed Potatoes
  • 1 tablespoon Butter
  • 4 Large Eggs
  • Salt and Pepper
  • 2 tablespoons Part Skim Shredded Mozzarella
  • 1 tablespoon Parmesan
  • 6-8 Sage Leaves


  1. Heat your oven to 350 degrees. Then microwave the potatoes until they are just warm - this will probably just take a minute or two. Stop halfway to stir the potatoes. The potatoes are easier to work with when they are warm, and more importantly, by heating them a little it insures that the potatoes will be hot when the eggs are cooked.
  2. Use half of the butter to grease a pie pan. Then add the warm potatoes. Use a spoon to create four spaces to hold the eggs. Crack the eggs into these spots, sprinkle a bit of salt and pepper over the eggs. Then sprinkle the cheeses over. Melt the remaining butter and drizzle it over.

  3. Place the dish on the lowest rack of the oven to cook for 7 minutes.
  4. Then move it to an upper rack and cook under broil for 5 more minutes. The whites of the eggs should be solid, and the yolks should still be soft. Let sit for 3-5 minutes before serving.
