Baked Eggs with Potatoes and Cheese

Serves: 4
Total Calories: 299


1 pound all-purpose potato, such as Yukon gold
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
8 ounces fresh mozzarella cheese, sliced
4 large eggs
Freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons Parmigiano-Reggiano


1 Scrub the potatoes and peel them. Cut them into 1/4-inch-thick slices. Place the potatoes in a medium saucepan with cold water to cover and salt to taste. Cover and bring to a simmer. Cook until the potatoes are just tender when pierced with a fork, about 10 minutes. Drain the potatoes and cool slightly.

2 Place a rack in the center of the oven. Preheat the oven to 400°F. Smear the butter around the bottom and sides of a 9-inch square baking dish. Arrange the potato slices in the pan, overlapping them slightly. Place the cheese slices on top of the potatoes. Break the eggs into a small cup, then slide them into the pan on top of the cheese. Sprinkle with salt, pepper, and the grated Parmigiano-Reggiano.

3 Bake until the eggs are set to taste, about 15 minutes. Serve hot.
