Just Crack an Egg on it

Last night I was going to roast a pork tenderloin, but it was still too frozen.  I had to think quick – we didn’t have any frozen or boxed meals and I knew we’d be starving if we had to wait for takeout, so I got creative.

We had some sweet potatoes, onions, a bag of 10 minute farro from Traders Joes, and some asparagus, so I roasted up the veggies and boiled the farro.

I try to keep a balanced plate most of the time, which means about 1/4- 1/3 carbohydrates, 1/4- 1/3 protein, and 1/2 veggies (with some form of fat mixed in as well).

But what does a girl do when she realizes her plate is missing protein and fat?

Just crack an egg on it!  (Well actually, you should probably cook it first).

I am a firm believe that you can enjoy a fried egg on just about anything, from toast in the morning, to salads and even meat.

Give it a try, there is nothing like a big runny yolk to add tons of great flavor and nutrients to just about any meal – except maybe ice cream…but I am open to trying it.

Do you have any creative egg recipes?

Do you like eggs for dinner?


  1. Totally agree- I do this CONSTANTLY (NYC "cooking," ya know...). I call it the "bibimbap technique"- because eating bibimbap for the first time showed me how you can putt a runny fried egg on anything. :)

    1. Bibimpap was my first non-breakfast egg experience too! I have also noticed that there are a lot of upscale restaurants that have them on their menu now also. District Kitchen has this awesome "Shirred Organic Egg" dish with potatoes and onions that is amazing.
