Potato Nest with Avocado and Egg

Today I had the hardest time deciding what to eat for breakfast. Not that I didn’t have plenty of options, I just couldn’t decide? It was a weird feeling. Is this what toddlers feel like? Finally inspiration hit as I was putting away dishes. My trusty spiralizer came into view. I decided to make some potato nests, use my avocado that were on the edge of being bad and fry and egg for the top. Yum!

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Next spiralize red potatoes. Sweet potatoes would have been great, but I didn’t have any of those on hand. I used 2 potatoes and it made 3 nests. I’ll have extras for later this week. To this I added 1 egg white (to hold it all together), 2 teaspoons parmesan and a little salt and pepper. Form into little nests on a parchment lined baking sheet.

Bake until potatoes are soft and begin browning on edges. There that was the hardest part.

Now add half and avocado on top of nest.

I had sauteed some bell pepper and onions, I added those next.

On top of those was a fried egg. I used a green salsa to finish it off. Relatively simple, and helped to satisfy my toddler style angst this morning.
