Cooking is apart of my every day life. I am constantly cooking meals for the kids. I like to experiment with different spices and sauces.

Kickstart Your Breakfast

Breakfast is a meal that you can enjoy any time of the day. My family is Macedonian. I grew up on spicy foods. So, one day I decided to make spicy eggs. Cayenne pepper plays a huge role in my recipe. There are many benefits to consuming this spice. So, if you love spicy foods, you will love this twist to sunny-side-up eggs. It only takes 13 minutes to make. The serving size I recommended is one egg. Mainly because I assume that you may add a side dish to the eggs. You can change the serving size to two if you choose not to have this with another dish. Eggs do have a lot of cholesterol. Keep that in mind. Feel free to play around with the recipe or add to it. The recipe is below... Enjoy!


Cook Time

Prep time: 3 min
Cook time: 10 min
Ready in: 13 min
Yields: Serves 4 people


  • 4 eggs, Large
  • 3 drops per egg Hot sauce, Ta patio salsa is what I use. Any hot sauce will do.
  • 1tsp Per Egg Cayenne Pepper
  • 1/3 cup Extra virgin olive oil, I am using True Goodness by Meijer
  1. In a frying pan, pour 1/3 cup of oil in pan. Make sure it coats evenly.
  2. Crack open 4 eggs and add them to the pan. If your eggs start to cling together, do not worry.Grab a metal spatula to separate them. Cook on medium heat. Don't use too high of a setting. Your eggs will burn!
  3. Once you see the eggs start to white ,add Cayenne Pepper. After you put the Cayenne Pepper add your hot sauce to the eggs. Let Cayenne Pepper/hot sauce sit on the egg 1 minute. Then flip the egg.
  4. Cook the other side for about 4 to 5 minutes. After they are done remove grease with paper towel (optional). Now add more hot sauce to top the egg. ( as desired)

Try pairing the eggs with bacon, preferably turkey bacon. It is a healthier option. You will have energy to handle what ever your day will bring.
