  • Recommended for: Breakfast


  • Medium sized frying pan (around 26cm) with lid.
  • Spatula


  • Protein
    • 4 large eggs
  • Veggies:
    • ½ large onion, finely chopped
    • 3 large tomatoes, finely chopped
  • Healthy Fat
    • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • Herbs, spices, Extras
    • ¼ tsp salt
    • ¼ tsp ground black pepper
    • ½ tsp cayenne pepper (optional)

Ingredients are based off the Sleekgeek Food List, combined together using the Sleekgeek Healthy Meal Template, and portioned out with the Sleekgeek Portion Control Guide.


  • Begin by peeling and chopping ½ an onion, and then chop the 3 tomatoes and set aside until needed.
  • Heat olive oil in a frying pan, over medium heat. Add the chopped onions and fry until translucent.
  • Add the chopped tomato, salt, black pepper and cayenne (if using) to the pan, and stir well. Allow to cook for 8-10 minutes, or until the tomato softens.
  • Crack one egg at a time into the pan, placing each egg separately around the pan. Season each egg with a pinch of salt. Cover the pan with the lid, and cook until your desired yolk consistency is reached. (Approximately 3-4 minutes for the egg white to set and yolks to remain runny. If you prefer firmer yolks, keep cooking for a further few minutes until the yolk is to your liking.)
  • Remove from the pan using a spatula to serve up each egg along with some of the sauce, and serve with a portion of fruit of your liking (strawberries, kiwi, or grapefruit work well with this).
