When I’m all out of ideas for dinner, I make spaghetti fried eggs. Of course, I use zucchini noodles in place of regular spaghetti.
If I’m lazy, tired or it’s just me eating and Lu’s out of town or not home for the dinner, I also make this dish. It’s one of those meals that comes together in under 30 minutes (Rachael Ray, are you seeing this?!) and is beyond satisfying.
I made this recipe this morning, because I woke up craving it for breakfast and I needed a blog post for the day. So, it’s a win-win!
After I whipped this up for the blog and Snapchat (yes, I’m on Snapchat – username inspiralized!), I quickly photographed it, scarfed it down, and now here I am – writing this post!
I actually made this recipe on the blog back in late July of 2013 (only about a month after starting my blog.) I used regular whole wheat bread and added sriracha for an extra kick.
Now that I’ve discovered gluten-free cooking hacks, I wanted to share this new-and-improved version that’s packed with more flavor and minus the gluten.
Plus, I cringe whenever I look at my old posts because of the photography, so I’ve been meaning to update that post. Again, it’s a win-win!
Now, if you’re just making this for yourself, just use one less zucchini, half of the olive oil and half of the toasted breadcrumb mixture (save the rest for a future meal – they save well!)
The kicker here? The gluten-free breadcrumbs! Honestly, I didn’t expect these to come out as amazingly as they did. They’re seasoned with oregano, parsley, basil and garlic powder which adds an Italian burst of flavor in each bite.
Plus, they add that glorious crunchiness that glutenous breadcrumbs normally add – so you can have the best of both worlds!
Keep this recipe for the breadcrumbs in your arsenal – they have so many more uses, like with casseroles, salads and other pastas. Expect to see more of them around here!
Now, go make this and as you fork the fried egg and let the yolk soak the zucchini noodles and absorb those crispy breadcrumbs, you’re going to simultaneously write me a thank you email. I just know it.
Have you tried spaghetti fried eggs before?
