Sweet Potato Pasta with Fried Eggs

PastaWithFriedEgg-9

I love most any pasta topped with a fried egg. In fact, most any food seems to be better with a fried egg either a-top, or alongside the main component of the dish. Last week were were sans eggs. I didn’t know what to do with myself. We rely on eggs so much for meals.

I thought about adding some pasta to this dish. But, when veggies are thinly sliced and steamed they take on a texture that’s very similar to homemade pasta. So, I’m saving the pasta for another day. These sweet potatoes and the thinly sliced collard greens work just fine.

After being steamed they’re tossed with some olive oil, lemon zest, and fresh herbs. It’s bright, fresh, and tastes like spring.

My favorite way to fry an egg is over medium-high heat. I like my yolk to be runny, but not the whites, so I flip then turn the heat off. But, of course, cook ’em however you like ’em best.

I like the yolks to be runny so that when broken they add to the sauce to make it extra rich and delicious. I served this with just one egg per person. But, both Tim and I thought that two eggs would be even better. We wanted some eggy goodness in every bite.

My perfect bite includes a bit of sweet potato, collard greens, some parmesan, a bit of the olive oil sauce, and a big piece of egg with yummy yolk. Just heavenly.

We ate this for lunch, outside, enjoying the beautiful spring weather.

Happy Eating!

Turnip Hash with Bacon and Gouda

TurnipHash-1

Lunchtime is often spent at my desk. Sometimes it’s what I’ve cooked for a post, maybe it’s leftovers, occasionally it’s an almond butter and honey sandwich with some fruit and a glass of milk. Whatever it is, it’s usually eaten while I do something else, often standing at the kitchen island because I don’t have time to sit down.

I sat down for this one.

TurnipHash-4

I would argue that almost anything is better with bacon. I could probably give up any other meat. But, bacon, it’s not going anywhere. Paired with crispy on the outside, tender on the inside turnips, and these two things alone could win me over.

TurnipHash-8

They took less than ten minutes. This is a quick one to whip up.

TurnipHash-7

Once the veggies were done, they got moved over to the side so an egg could be fried. I like to get the skillet really hot, so the edges can crisp up a bit. Then I flip, turn off the heat, and let the top set just a bit. I like the yolk to be runny, so it will combine with the veggies to make a dressing of sorts. However you like to cook your eggs will be perfect though. You could even scramble them if you’d like.

TurnipHash-6

And then, the dish came together with some gouda cheese, chopped spring onions, roasted and salted almonds, and a squeeze of lemon.

TurnipHash-5

I sat and ate this while making yummy sounds and writing happy notes in my recipe notebook.

TurnipHash-2

Is it weird that I want to have this again for dinner instead of the homemade pasta with homemade tomato sauce that I’ve got planned. Yeah, I liked it that much.

Happy Eating!
