Fisherman’s Eggs

Our growing Pinn’s Plate family has seen a few changes around the household. Less time to eat out and less time to prep meals at home. That’s forced us to look carefully at the things in our pantry and immediate grocery stores and come up with creative and tasty ideas. Fisherman’s Eggs is one of those dishes that hits the spot for any time of day with a hearty and flavorful protein packed bite.


The ingredients are simple, a few eggs, a couple cloves of garlic, an onion, parsley or chives, and a can of Sardines. Start by mincing the onion and garlic. Then in a small sauté pan on medium heat, cook down the onion in a little olive oil until they get a bit of color and soften, about 8 minutes. This is a good time to preheat your oven to 500°F. After the onions have cooked down, add the minced garlic to the pan and sauté for a few minutes more.


Transfer the cooked garlic and onions to an oven-safe dish. Crumble the sardines into the mixture and toss gently to combine.

Cook the dish in the preheated oven for about 8 minutes. Carefully remove the dish and sprinkle with chopped parsley. Then, crack eggs on top of the entire mixture. Put the whole dish back in the oven for another 8 minutes, or until the whites of the eggs are set.

Remove the dish from the oven for the last time and top with a little additional parsley and season with some salt and pepper. Then grab your favorite fork or spoon and enjoy this simple and delicious meal!
