A November Morning: Cheesy Sunny Side Ups


It was chilly out and I loved nothing more than to stay home, enjoy a cup of french pressed coffee, and play with my puppy. This satisfying breakfast completed this perfect morning.

Sunny Side Up Eggs with Pepperjack Cheese and Mixed Herbs

Cheesy Sunny Side Ups
Serves 2

  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 cup of shredded pepperjack cheese
  • 2 slices of Rosemary Olive bread (or any other type of bread you prefer)
  • 1 garlic clove, peeled and gently pressed with knife to release a little bit of juice
  • 1/4 cup of pine nuts
  • 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 tsp oregano
  • 1/2 tsp fresh thyme
  • salt and pepper
  • tabasco, for serving (optional)


  1. Add 1 tbsp of olive oil in a small nonstick skillet over medium heat. Crack 2 eggs into the skillet, one at a time, slowly. Cook for 1 minute and turn the heat to low. Sprinkle oregano, red pepper flakes, salt and pepper on top of eggs.
  2. Toast bread with pine nuts in oven until pine nuts are slightly browned.
  3. After eggwhites begin to set around yolks (about 2 more minutes), sprinkle pepperjack cheese on top of eggs. Cook for about 1-2 minutes more until cheese is just melted.
  4. Rub cut garlic on top of bread slices. Place bread on 2 plates. Use a spatula and serve one cheesy egg on top of each of the two slices of bread. Sprinkle with fresh thyme. Serve warm.

    Nice combination of ingredients. Adding pine nuts is ineresting. I have pine nuts that I bought before and I wasn't sure what to do with it. I should try this on weekend morning. Looks yummy! My kids love the egg and cheese together, just like this!

    What a cute puppy! Those eyes are so adorable. And I would also be a very happy camper rising up to eat those cheesy sunny side-ups alongside a strong cup of coffee. Yum!
