Frizzled Egg Spinach Salad

By frizzled, we mean eggs that are crispy on the outside, but oh-so-soft on the inside -- it's the best of both worlds, especially when paired with bacon and spinach.

Ingredients

  • 2 large round red potatoes, scrubbed

  • 6 ounce fresh green beans (2 cups)

  • 8 slices bacon

  • 8 ounce cremini or button mushrooms, halved (3 cups)

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced (1 tsp.)

  • 4 eggs

  • 1 5 ounce bag baby spinach

  • 1 recipe Raspberry Dressing, recipe below

Raspberry Dressing

  • cup canola oil

  • cup raspberry vinegar

  • 2 tablespoon honey

  • 2 teaspoon bottled chipotle pepper sauce

  • 1 teaspoon Dijon-style mustard

  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon

  • ¼ teaspoon cumin

Directions

  1. Cut each potato into 8 wedges. Place in 12-inch skillet. Add water to cover; bring to boiling. Reduce heat and simmer, covered, for 5 minutes. Add green beans; return to boiling. Reduce heat and simmer, covered, for 5 minutes more. Drain; rinse in cold water.

  2. Wipe out skillet to dry. Add bacon to skillet and cook until crisp. Drain on paper towels; reserve 2 Tbsp. drippings in skillet. (Reserve additional drippings to use as needed for cooking potatoes and eggs.)

  3. Add mushrooms and garlic to skillet; cook over medium-high heat for 4 minutes. Remove from skillet. Cover to keep warm.

  4. Add potato wedges to skillet. Cook over medium heat for 8 to 10 minutes, turning to brown on both sides and adding reserved drippings as needed. Remove from skillet.

  5. To frizzle, break eggs into skillet; sprinkle with salt and pepper. Reduce heat to low; cook eggs for 4 to 5 minutes or until whites are completely set and yolks start to thicken. For more doneness on top, cover during the last 2 minutes of cooking.

  6. Line plates with spinach. Top with beans, bacon, mushrooms, potatoes, and one egg. Add Raspberry Dressing to skillet to warm. Drizzle salads with some dressing; pass remaining. Makes 4 servings.

Raspberry Dressing

  1. In a bowl, whisk together canola oil, raspberry vinegar, honey, chipotle pepper sauce, mustard, cinnamon, and cumin.
