Spiralized Potato Breakfast Pie with Avocado and Fried Eggs

Apparently I’m on a potato and fried egg kick. Can you blame me?

People often ask me, “How do you come up with so many spiralized recipes? Is it hard? Where do you get your inspiration?”

Well, the best recipes come from near-empty refrigerators and randomness, to be honest. I can plan all I want, but my best, most shared recipes are the ones that I didn’t plan at all.

Let me explain.

Spiralized Potato Breakfast Pie with Avocado and Fried Eggs

One day, I came home to a Martha Stewart pie pan from my gift registry. When I opened the card, I saw it was from a sweet follower of mine on Instagram @grainfreeadventure. How thoughtful!

I had put this pie pan on my registry because I figured that once I was married, I’d get into baking. As you’ve probably heard me say, I’m a horrible baker. I mean, I’ve tried to make pancakes from scratch (the most basic form of baking) and I’ve failed each time and had to go buy the boxed kind.

I’m just horrible with exact measurements and strict rules – I’m much more of a pinch of this, pinch of that and a “oh no, it’s too spicy, let me add in this.” Baking just seems not soothing or relaxing to me, but I know that so many people feel the exact opposite, that they love to bake on a rainy Saturday afternoon with music in the background.

Well, I’d like to be one of those people, hence the pie pan.

But, alas, I was in the kitchen, staring at my fridge and my pantry and trying to figure out what to make for the blog. All I really had was avocado, eggs and potatoes (I desperately needed to go food shopping.)

Well, since one of those things was spiralizable, I decided to do something breakfast-y with potatoes.

As I was reaching for my vegetable peeler, I spotted the pie pan again. The lightbulb went on and I thought, “What if I baked a pie crust out of spiralized potatoes?”

Well, turns out, I didn’t have enough potatoes to fill the outer crust, the sides and the bottoms of the pie pan, so I had to improvise with just the bottom of the pan.

Eureeka! This turned out fabulously – you basically get a hashbrowny like crust which hardens to a crisp in the oven. Then, you just remove it from the pan with a spatula and top it with avocado, fried eggs and sriracha and voila – a gorgeous, easy, clean-eating friendly breakfast!

After this recipe, my mind started racing with toppings ideas – well what if we did this for huevos rancheros? Tostones? What if we had it for dinner and topped it with a pesto and chicken?

And as for the pie pan, if you don’t have a pie pan, that’s fine – just arrange the potato noodles in 9″ diameter circular shape on a baking tray.

The possibilities are endless and now, I hope you try this recipe – I’m so glad it happened by accident!

Have you ever made a spiralized pie before?

Mmm I want to try this and then I want to try the pesto and chicken version!
Sara says:
girl after my own heart without the love of baking! I try... I really do - but I'd prefer to cook how I want... rather than following a strict recipe :)
kos kat says:
One small typo. I don't think this will serve 55 unless you are using a thimble to serve them :-) Serves: 55
Heather says:
Just made this for breakfast and it was amazing!! I can't wait to make it for my boyfriend. Thanks for sharing.
Ali Maffucci says:
Heather - I'm so happy to hear it!! Sounds like your boyfriend is a lucky guy!
Lianna says:
Just saw a similar recipe - for shredding potatoes, packing into muffin cups, bake til almost crispy, then add an egg to each muffin cup and bake again until eggs are set. That would be so much easier with spiralized potatoes :)
Yvonne says:
Hi Ali These potatoes look yummy, going to make for breakfast in the morning. Now, let me just asy thank you for such a wonderful book Inspiralized. I just started to spiralize, and was looking for a "good" book with easy to follow directions, and recipes that didn't feed an army of people. What I found, is an amazing, well written book with all of the information I was looking for including nutritional information. For anyone looking for an excellent book on spiralazing, I highly reccommend Spiralized. Thank you again for a great book.
Ali Maffucci says:
Thank you so much for the kind words, I'd love you to leave this review on Amazon!! :)
Yvonne says:
I posted a review to Amazon today. Really do love this book. Tonight I made zucchini noodles, chicken sausage, some orange and yellow bell peppers with Thai Peanut sauce for dinner. Delicious!
Danielle K. says:
Just made this for lunch and it was super yummy and filling. I added some salsa to it as well. Thinking this may be one of my new lunch favorites!
Angela says:
I love this - I've made it quite a few times already. Works perfectly for a weekend breakfast or an easy weeknight dinner. The potatoes come out crispy on the outside, combined with the egg yolk and creaminess of the avocado, with a kick from the Sriracha, it's a great flavor and texture combination.

super easy lunch idea, made (almost) entirely from the freezer and 100% from @wholefoodsmarket, so next time you go there to shop, grab the following items and make this Teriyaki Tofu and Pepper Riced Cauliflower Stir Fry👇🏼👇🏼

~ frozen riced cauliflower, stir fry style⁣
~ frozen three pepper blend (sliced bell peppers)⁣
~ organic teriyaki sauce⁣
~ @wildwoodfoods teriyaki baked tofu⁣
~ for garnish: white sesame seeds, red pepper flakes⁣

heat a tablespoon of neutral oil in a medium skillet. add the bag of riced cauliflower and sauté until softened to your preference (about 5 minutes for rice-like, IMHO.) set the cauliflower aside in a bowl. add a couple handfuls of bell pepper strips and half the package of tofu, cubed. pour over some teriyaki sauce (I use about 1/3 cup), stir, and let cook until peppers are totally soft, another 3 to 5 minutes. top the riced cauliflower with the teriyaki tofu and peppers. garnish with sesame seeds and red pepper flakes. enjoy!⁣ 🥡

probably my favorite part of parenthood is seeing life through my children’s’ eyes. everything is new and they live a life of exciting discovery. and nothing beats the merriment of Christmastime! 🎄🎅🏻 luca and roma had a blast ice skating today in NYC - luca got the hang of it quickly and he loved pushing roma on the little plastic bear seats they had at @rinkatbrookfieldplacenyc. ⛸❄️ the twins were angels and slept the whole time, so I could be present with my older kids. 👼🏻👼🏻

and we’re building a holiday bucket list calendar, what should we add to it (aside from meeting santa? 😉)

cauliflower and carrot masala, totally normal meal on thanksgiving eve, right? 😅🥄

tomorrow we’re going to my BIL’s to hang out with Lu’s side of the family, and I’m excited to see everyone (it’s been YEARS!) and have the kids spend time with their cousins, aunts and uncles 🙏🏼

for the curry, simmer cauliflower, carrots, a jar of @mayakaimalfoods, and 2 cups of @bonafideprovisions veggie broth in a large pot for 20 minutes or until thickened to your preference. add cooked lentils, stir, and serve with jasmine rice, chutney and toasted naan. easy 30 minute meal 👏🏼 not exactly thanksgiving-friendly, but worth a share!

safe travels today and tomorrow and wishing everyone a safe and happy thanksgiving 🦃 I’m so grateful for you
