Prep the vegetables and meatballs
Heat the oven to 425°F.
- Scrub the potatoes. Cut the potatoes into ½-inch pieces.
- Peel and coarsely chop the onion. Finely chop enough onion to measure 2 tablespoons [¼ cup] for the meatballs.
- Using the large holes of a box grater, coarsely grate the zucchini. Wrap the zucchini in a kitchen towel and squeeze to remove as much moisture as possible.
- Cut a small corner from the ground meat packaging and drain off any excess liquid. Transfer to a plate; pat dry with a paper towel.
In a large bowl, combine the ground meat, finely chopped onion, zucchini, and meatball spice blend. Season generously with salt and pepper and mix gently until just combined. Using wet hands, form the mixture into 1-inch meatballs.
Roast the vegetables and meatballs
On one end of a sheet pan [on 1 sheet pan], toss the potatoes and coarsely chopped onion with 2 to 3 teaspoons oil; season with salt and pepper and spread in an even layer. On the other end of the sheet pan [on a 2nd sheet pan], brush the meatballs with 2 to 3 teaspoons oil and spread in an even layer.
Roast, stirring the vegetables and turning the meatballs halfway through, until the vegetables are tender and lightly browned and the meatballs are browned and cooked through, 15 to 20 minutes. When the vegetables and meatballs are almost done, prepare the eggs.
Cook the eggs
In a medium frying pan over medium heat, warm 1 to 2 teaspoons butter or oil (from your pantry) until hot but not smoking. Crack the eggs directly into the pan and season with salt and pepper. Cook until the whites have set and the yolks are slightly runny, 2 to 3 minutes. If you prefer firmer yolks, cook for 1 to 2 minutes longer.
Transfer the meatballs and vegetables to individual plates and drizzle with the tomato sauce. Top with the fried eggs and serve.
- Scrub the potatoes.
