I was just mentioning to some friends last night, I love cooking because I can play around and not follow a recipe exactly. With this meal, I decided to check out a few recipes and then take a look in my fridge and pantry to see what I had on hand to cook with. I had already meal prepped for the week, so I had some roasted spiralized sweet potato ready to go. I also had some roasted/spiralized red onion, lacinato kale that I had already washed and chopped, shiitake mushrooms that had been roasted; I also had garlic, a package of pre-chopped pancetta, sriracha, and some spices...so I decided to toss something together without much of an idea on how it would come out.
In a sauté pan over medium heat, cook and brown the pancetta. Once browned, drain it onto a paper towel. Pour off most of the fat (which you won't use in this recipe) and then toss the kale in to sauté. Once it becomes a vibrant green, add your garlic and gently cook. Then add in your shiitake mushrooms, spiralized onion, and spiralized sweet potato, toss in some cumin powder, powdered ginger, turmeric powder, and a dash of Worcestershire sauce and mix it all up so that it gets evenly distributed. Next you'll want to create little nests or nooks where you'll crack your egg into. Make sure you can see some of the pan through the bottom of the nests. Add a bit of salt and pepper (I prefer Himalayan pink salt myself). Note that I found it helpful to make two separated nests so it would be easier to flip.
Once they appear to be more solidified and opaque, flip your nests. Don't worry if it doesn't all stay together, that's to be expected - the main thing is that you flip your egg so it can cook more evenly and not be so raw on top, so it only needs a minute or so. And don't worry if it's burned a little - this only adds flavor!
Once it's done, flip it so the original side is face-up on the plate and top with some of your pancetta and a squiggle of deliciously sweet spicy Sriracha.
Feel free to add or not include anything from this recipe, make it your own! Don't be afraid to mess around in the kitchen, but remember that less is more, start with smaller amounts of additions versus tossing in massive amounts. The fact that you made it, that you created it, will make it taste that much better!
