Serves: 4


  • La Brea Bakery Bread French Baguette
  • 2 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 yellow onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 orange pepper, thinly sliced
  • 2 red bell peppers, thinly sliced
  • 1 tbsp. smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp. cumin
  • 1 tsp. harissa
  • 1 tsp. dried chili flakes
  • 1 large can (28 oz.) stewed tomatoes
  • salt to taste
  • 4 eggs
  • goat cheese
  • parsley
  • cilantro


  • In a medium sized skillet over medium low heat, drizzle olive oil & begin to sauté the onions & peppers to caramelize.
  • Once peppers are caramelized, add spices & stir to allow the spices to become fragrant.
  • Add in tomatoes and allow sauce to bubble. Season to taste with salt.
  • Lower the temperature so the sauce is just barely bubbling.
  • Dig 4 'wells' in the sauce for the eggs. Crack each egg & slowly pour into the wells.
  • Place a lid over the top of the skillet.
  • Poach the eggs for approx 5 minutes and remove lid to test firmness – continue in 1-2 minute intervals until whites are firm and yolk is runny.
  • Toast bread in oven so it is nice and crusty.
  • Remove from heat & crumble goat cheese over the top.
  • Cover with fresh herbs.
  • Serve with crusty bread.
