Prep Time 5 minutes
Hands-On Cook Time 45 minutes
Sous Vide Time 45 minutes
Total Time 50 minutes
Servings 4 people


  • 3 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 6 large eggs
  • 1 large onion thinly sliced
  • 1 large red bell pepper thinly sliced
  • 28 ounce can of whole plum tomatoes
  • 4 ounces crumbled feta
  • 4 cloves minced garlic
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp smokey paprika
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder
  • 1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1/8 tsp red chili flakes


  1. Heat oven to 425F, and set sous vide machine to 63C/145F.

  2. Place 6 large eggs in the bath for 45 minutes.

  3. Heat oil in a large cast iron on medium-low heat. Add sliced onion and bell pepper to the skillet. Cook onion and pepper mixture until very soft, about 20 to 25 minutes. Add garlic and cook until tender, 1 to 2 minutes. Add in cumin, paprika, chili powder, red chili flakes and cayenne, and cook 1 minute. 

  4. Pour in plum tomatoes and season with salt and pepper to taste; simmer until the tomato mixture has thickened, about 10 minutes. Stir in crumbled feta and cook until cheese is creamy, about 1 to 2 minutes.

  5. Place skillet in oven and bake for 5 minutes. Remove skillet from oven, and crack eggs into the skillet over tomatoes. If you want eggs to be less runny, crack eggs into skillet before baking in oven for 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve with fresh baked bread, pita bread, or challah and enjoy this incredibly delicious blend of flavors.

    Is the oven time really necessary? Would a little more simmer time stove top work OK too? Seems a waste to heat the oven for 5 mins cook time

      Hi Tom, thanks for the feedback. I think simmering the eggs on the stove top will work perfectly fine.
