  • 2 Tablespoons Avocado oil (Click here for my favorite brand on Amazon)
  • 28 ounces Marinara sauce (see notes)
  • ½ Green bell pepper, diced
  • 1 Tablespoon Smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon Cumin
  • 6 Large Eggs
  • Kosher salt and pepper to taste
  • 6 Kalamata olives, chopped garnish
  • 2 Tablespoons fresh cilantro garnish


  • In a large skillet over medium heat, add your avocado oil and diced green pepper and cook until softened. Should take about 3 minutes.
  • Add the smoked paprika snd cumin and cook for a few minutes to bloom the spices.
  • Stir in the marinara sauce.
  • With a large spoon, make a well in the sauce to make a perfect spot to crack your egg. Do this all around your skillet with each egg.
  • Over medium-low heat, cover your skillet to cook the eggs until the whites of your eggs are set and cooked through. This will take about 8-10 minutes.
  • Serve.


  • To keep this keto friendly, you would need to use Rao's marinara sauce or make your own.  Here is my recipe for Homemade keto marinara sauce.
