  • Large skillet with lid


  • 2 tablespoon olive oil
  • ½ yellow onion diced
  • 1 small potato diced
  • 1 celeriac peeled and diced
  • 1 rutabaga peeled and diced
  • 1 beet peeled and diced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh herbs thyme, sage, rosemary or a mix
  • Salt to taste
  • Freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 4 eggs more as needed; can fit up to six
  • ¼ cup freshly grated parmesan cheese


  • Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the diced onion, potato, celeriac, rutabaga, and beets. Cook for 8 to 10 minutes, stirring frequently until the veggies start to soften.
  • Pour ¼ cup water into the skillet, cover, and let the veggies steam for 3 minutes. If the veggies are still firm, let them steam for another couple minutes. Remove the lid, and cook off any excess water.
  • Season the veggies with salt, pepper, and fresh herbs. Use a spoon to move around the veggies and make four wells for the eggs. Crack an egg into each well, cover, and let them cook to your liking.
  • Remove from heat, and serve with the parmesan cheese.


  • Be sure to cut the veggies into small cubes. The smaller, the better.
  • You can substitute any root veggies you have on hand in this recipe. Aim to have about 6 cups of chopped veggies total.
  • This dish is best enjoyed right away, but you can store the cooked vegetables in an airtight container in the fridge for a few days. Reheat them with a little oil in a skillet before cracking fresh eggs on top.
