Potato Noodle Bowl with Manchego, Egg & Serrano Ham

Okay, so I’m really into making spiralized potato breakfast bowls.

I’m counting down the minutes until it’s truly Autumn and I can start using sweet potato noodles. And adding things like mashed cranberries or pomegranates (mm!)

While sweet potatoes are pretty much accessible year-round, I like to save them for when there are leaves on the ground and that crispness in the air.

I love using potato noodles in breakfast bowls, because they are SO much more fun than regular cubed potatoes.

Whenever I order omelettes or breakfasts at restaurants and the side options are “breakfast potatoes” or “toast,” I always pick “toast, not buttered.” I do this, because I rather have a slice or two of whole wheat toast than about 2 cups of cubed potatoes fried or cooked in half a stick of butter – ick!

It’s rare you go to a restaurant and get a reasonable portion of potatoes with your breakfast – and since I’m an all or nothing kinda gal, I can’t have them on plate – because I’ll eat them…. all! Anyone else like that?

When you spiralize one small red potato, you get a bigger bang for your buck – you get about a cup of potato noodles. If you were to translate one red potato into cubes, it would yield about 1/2 cup.

Plus, you’re eating real, whole foods. A potato grows from the ground.

Now, I recently went to a Spanish themed cooking class and ever since then, I’ve been craving Serrano ham and manchego cheese. I actually bought some to keep in the apartment for a spontaneous wine and cheese night, but instead, as I was thumbing through my refrigerator for blog recipe inspiration, I pulled out the ham and cheese and ended up with today’s recipe.

Now, if this dish doesn’t satisfy your tastebuds, I don’t know what will – the sweet, nuttiness of the manchego cheese with the fluffy scrambled eggs and slightly salty ham pairs wonderfully with the chili powder and garlic seasoned potato noodles.

This potato noodle bowl would make a great hangover breakfast (ha!), a birthday brunch or just one of those cold fall days when all you want to do is curl up with a bowl of heartiness.

went for a nice long walk outside with the kids (we haven’t been able to do that for a while, because it’s just been so freezing and/or snowing) 🥶 and then we decided to pick up some to-go sandwiches and while we waited, the kids had some banana bread and juice 🍊🍌🍞 luca said, “mama I want to stay here alllll day!” which made me feel sad, because we haven’t felt comfortable dining indoors yet, and I’m sure he misses the people watching at restaurants on the weekends 😔 it’s okay, I’m just filing this under “things we get to look forward to when it’s safe again” 💋 #jerseycity ...

a year and 5 days ago, I started @invisalign to correct my cross bite and fix some crowding on my lower teeth. 👄🦷 a few weeks into treatment, my dentist gave me some extra aligners (the clear trays that you wear that miraculously shift your teeth) “just in case” the Corona virus came to the US and the office has to shutdown. well, a LOT has happened in this past year (my teeth and bite have corrected and Corona certainly made its way here!) and today was the final appointment to perfect my teeth and bite with some veneers (which I haven’t quite gotten used to yet, but all of the stories you shared and kind compliments you gave in my DMs has made me feel A LOT better.) 😬⁣

in two weeks, I get my overnight retainers, which I’ll wear forever (but only to sleep.) aside from that, I’m done with #invisalign and it feels SO good. I cannot believe how drastically it has changed my face, and when I watch myself talk in a video or look at a photo of myself, I no longer cringe at my lisp or how crooked my face looks. it wasn’t something I was self-conscious of every day, but it’s definitely something that I noticed when looking at photos and it secretly bothered me. it’s silly, but it did! ⁣

now I can proudly say that I love my smile, and I feel more confident than ever. it’s a shame I’ll have to wear a mask and cover up this expensive smile 😂😂😂😂 but hopefully in 2022, I’ll be able to fully whip it out. right?!! 🤞🏼💉 ⁣

I’m going to write a blog post all about the process, share a ton of before and afters, but I wanted to ask.... are there any questions you have specifically that you’d like me to include/address? leave a comment below and let me know! and in the meantime, you can check out my Invisalign highlight for the whole journey!
