Eggs in a Spiralized Nest {paleo} {vegetarian}

I’m no chef. I don’t create fancy shmancy recipes and take the most beautiful photos. You’ve seen how awkward I am in the kitchen. But I try hard because I want to eat real and yummy food. And I share my creations because I want you to eat real and yummy food too – and I love when you share what you make with me :)

I have three requirements for the food I make: simple, healthy, delicious. I don’t want to spend a billion hours in the kitchen so I keep it simple. It already takes enough time eating healthy, so I pass on the complicated, a billion and one steps and lengthy ingredients list. To me, healthy means real food that nourishes your body. And delicious, well that is self-explanatory and you’ll have to be the judge of that.

Over the past few weeks, I re-vamped and updated my recipe page. It needed some editing, cleaning up and recipe re-dos – like my spaghetti squash frittata. When I first began blogging, I posted recipes that were not tested more than once or were not something I would necessarily make again because I felt like I needed to post everyday. In going through some of my older recipe posts, I re-evaluated this. I want to have a collection of recipes that I am proud of. My new and improved recipe page reflects just this: simple, healthy, delicious recipes that I make again and again. So I deleted some recipes because they either need re-testing or they kinda suck. I’m kidding. I don’t think I ever posted something terrible but you get the picture.

I want to focus on the quality of a recipe rather than the quantity. I want to provide simple and clear directions that are easy to follow – with pictures when possible (like today, get excited). I want to take my time with sharing recipes so they are as good as they can be. I first made this dish over a week ago. I teased you with photos. I am definitely not the most patient person but I am learning to be and this recipe is now ready to be shared.

So grab your ingredients: 2 eggs; 1 small sweet potato, spiralized (see directions here); 1 small zucchini, spiralized (see directions here); 1 sausage link, pre-cooked and sliced (optional); 1 tbsp. coconut oil; salt and pepper to taste. Note: I use this spiralizerAnd let’s get cooking!

Eggs in a Spiralized Nest2

In a medium non-stick skillet, heat 3/4 tbsp. coconut oil over medium-high heat. When melted, add spiralized sweet potato and sautee for approx. 3 minutes.

Step 1 - Sweet Potato

When sweet potato begins to soften, add zucchini and sautee until soft.

Step 2 - Add Zucc

If you are adding sausage, do so now and sautee with the sweet potato and zucchini.

Step 3 - Add sausage

Create a “hole” in the middle of the skillet by moving the veggies and sausage to the perimeter of the skillet.

Step 4 - Nest

Add the rest of the coconut oil to the “hole” in the center. When melted, add the two eggs to the “hole” (I crack the eggs in a separate bowl and then add them; no-one likes shells in their breakfast).

Step 5 - Eggs

Cover the skillet with a lid to allow the eggs to cook for 2-3 minutes – depending on how runny you like your yolks but until the whites are no longer runny.

Add salt and pepper to taste and carefully transfer to a plate. Dig in, enjoy and eat the yolks.

  1. I did the same thing with my recipe page several months ago – I went through it and deleted any recipes I don’t stand behind 100%. I left some recipes on the page that have crappy pictures, but I’m hoping to reshoot them eventually!

    This recipe looks tasty! Remember how I said I was going to break out my spiralizer again this week? Well I didn’t. #fail Next week I will!

  2. I need a spiralizer. My favorite way to eat eggs is scrambled. I’m very weird about eggs. Even though I love them, I can only eat them really well done. Not burnt, just very thoroughly cooked. Also I love you but I hate yolks, I just think they taste funny. :)

  3. This looks fantastic!! I have toyed with doing the sweet potato or zoodle spirals with eggs, but never both & sausage – brilliant!! I’ll have to try this out sometime. :)

  4. Hi Amy! Happy Friday :)
    Simple, Healthy, and Delicious are three great elements of a meal. This recipe looks wonderful too! I have never heard of the spiralizer, but it looks like it does your meals wonders. I will have to try it out sometime and potentially add it to my cooking.
