Fried Egg and Sweet Potato Noodles with Bacon & Vegetable Hash

I can’t believe it’s already the latter end of August. Where the heck did the summer go? I spent a lot of time Inspiralizing, that’s for sure, but where did July & August go? June feels like 6 months ago! While I’m sad to see summer go, I’m excited for the fall. I love autumn in the northeast – the changing leaves on the trees are beautiful and it always manages to smell like baked apple pie and roasted chestnuts…. thank youuu Yankee Candle

Another reason I like the fall is the change in flavors. Sweet potatoes, pumpkin, chili, winter squashes, mmmm. Once September hits, Inspiralized is going to spiralize the heck out of those butternut squashes, just wait! In the meantime, I’ve managed to sneak in some sweet potatoes. I know, I know – spiralizing is great because it’s low carb. However, you only need to spiralize about 50% of the potato to make a full plate of potato noodles….. or, poodles. Tehe.

This recipe is killer, because it combines all types of flavors into one dish and packs a mean protein and nutrient punch. The sweet potato softens as you cook it and soaks up the runny yolk. Mmm! If you’re a vegan, swap the bacon for tofurkey bacon or crumbled tofu. If you’re trying to limit your fat content, substitute in turkey bacon. Sweet potatoes are high in B6 vitamins, Vitamic C and D, contain lots of iron and magnesium and are a solid source of carotenoids which help fight off cancer and protect against aging. Are you sold yet? I am.

Happy breakfasting! Enjoy these sweet poodles

Ingredients

  • 1 small sweet potato, as round as you can find it
  • 2 strips of bacon
  • 1 tbsp olive oil, divided into (2) 1/2 tbsps
  • 1/2 one red bell pepper, diced
  • 1/2 one small red onion, diced
  • 6 button mushrooms, quartered
  • 1 pinch of garlic powder
  • 1 pinch of oregano
  • 1 pinch of chili powder
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 egg
  • 1 small garlic clove, minced
  • parmesan cheese to garnish, optional
  • chopped parsley to garnish, optional
  • olive oil cooking spray

Instructions

  1. Peel your sweet potato, chop the pointed ends off and spiralize it, using Blade C. Set aside.
  2. Place a large skillet over medium heat and add in your strips of bacon. Cook until desired crunchiness and transfer to a plate lined with a paper towel. Once cooled, cut into 1 inch pieces. Set aside.
  3. Wipe down the bacon skillet and place it over medium heat with the 1/2 tbsp of olive oil. Next, place in the potato noodles, garlic powder and season with salt and pepper. Cook for about 5-7 minutes or until sweet potato softens into noodles and is no longer raw. Be sure to stir frequently so that the noodles don't sit for too long in the pan and burn. When done, transfer to a plate.
  4. While the sweet potato noodles are cooking, set a large skillet over medium-low heat and place in the rest of the olive oil. Once oil heats, add in the minced garlic and cook for 30 seconds. Add in the red onions, diced peppers, oregano, chili powder, and season lightly with pepper. Stir to combine, cook for about 2 minutes or until peppers and onions begin to soften. Once softened, add in the mushrooms and cook for about 3 minutes - they will shrink in size. Mix in the bacon and set on top of the sweet potato noodles.
  5. Wipe down the mushroom/pepper/onion skillet, spray with cooking spray and add in the egg, cooking until all whites are set but yolk is still runny.
  6. Place egg on top of the noodles & bacon/veggie hash and season with Parmesan and chopped parsley (optional).

Love your blog! I have broken two of the spiralizers trying to use them for sweet potato, do you have any good tips/tricks on how to avoid breaking them?
Oh no, sorry to hear that Lauren! I only ever use Blade C on sweet potatoes (unless I'm making potato chips)... also, make sure that you cut off both ends of the sweet potato so that there is an even surface for the teeth of the handle to dig into the potato and then make sure that you peel the potato prior to spiralizing it. Also, you may want to dry to divide the potato into two parts (just slice it in half!) Make sure when you spiralize, you grip that bottom handle for more leverage. Hope this helps!
Hmm these look delicious, thanks for posting up this recipe, looks quite simple to make. Simon

🎄 is up and christmas cookies were baked (second year in a row making @ambitiouskitchen’s sugar cookies - MAKE THEM! 👏🏼)⁣

can we get real and talk about holiday decorating and christmas cookie making for a sec? instagram makes you think it should be all “gumdrops and rainbows” but it’s not really that at all. the kids were breaking ornaments. luca spilt an entire jar of sprinkles all over the floor while decorating the cookies and that was after they fought over who would do each step with mama while making them. 😩 ⁣

yes. holiday music was played, but it was not peaceful and at times, it was chaotic and I said to Lu, “is this worth it?! do they even like this?!” ⁣

and then luca, with me in roma’s room after baths, looked up at me getting roma in her jammies and said, “mama, we make more cookies tomorrow, okay mama?” ⁣

and then I thought about my childhood memories and why I started this christmas cookie making the day after thanksgiving tradition in the first place. because I have one very, very vividly happy memory of decorating christmas cookies with my family. and it made me love this time of year and remember that time fondly. and knowing my mom, they were probably slice and bake 😂😂⁣

anyway. it may look “perfect” on instagram and then when you go to do it yourself, it seems like a disaster. but remember... kids just love your undivided attention and that’s exactly what they had tonight. they don’t remember the burnt cookies or the mess or their screaming sibling. they were too busy having a blast eating cookies with their parents. 🤍💚❤️ and that’s perfect.
...

HAPPY THANKSGIVING 🦃🍂 luca and roma helped mama put together the thanksgiving table this year with their hand turkeys (my favorite part of the table 🥰)! we’re celebrating at home with my parents and while there is other family who can’t be with us this year, we are grateful for our health and the family with us today. 🖤 there is much to be grateful for this year, more than ever. sending love, strength, and gratitude to all of you this year. I’m thankful for this community, more and more every year 🙌🏼 #happythanksgiving ...

there won't be any new recipes on the blog this week, because it's THANKSGIVING WEEK! 🦃 but don't go too far... this VEGAN creamy potato and kale soup is coming to the blog first thing sunday morning! 🥣 🥔 and yes, you can stir that leftover turkey in there, if you so please. 😇⁣

for those signing off early from work, have a lovely thanksgiving week staying safe and well, however you're spending the holiday 💓
