Sweet Potato Egg in a Nest

We’ve always heard that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, right? When I was young, my mother always made us an Egg in a Nest. It was a staple in our home. When I was older, I’d make it for myself as comfort food and always when I was feeling lonely or homesick.

IMG_2405The Egg in a Nest is known by several other names: bullseye eggs, eggs in a frame, egg in a hole, gashouse eggs, gasthaus eggs, hole in one, one-eyed Jack, one-eyed Pete, pirate’s eye, popeye, and spit in the ocean. I had no idea there were so many names!

Sweet Potato Egg in a Nest
Serves 2

1 cup sweet potato, spiralized
1/2 cup zucchini, spiralized
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 eggs
1/4 cup water
freshly milled pepper

  1. Spiralize the sweet potato and zucchini.
  2. In a medium sauté pan, heat the olive oil over medium heat. When the oil shimmers, add the sweet potato noodles and sauté just until they start to brown, about 4 minutes.  Add the zucchini, tossing with the sweet potatoes and sauté 1-2 minutes longer or until the zucchini is soft.
  3. With a scraper, arrange the veggie noodles into two nests with a well in the middle. Crack one egg into each well. Pour the water into the pan and immediately cover with a lid or foil to cook the eggs to the desired consistency.
  4. Remove the nests to serving plates and finish with freshly milled pepper.

Enjoy!
