the egg is one of the most versatile ingredients out there. it’s also one of the cheapest, making it one of the best on a budget.
for a quick, simple, cheap dinner, i got reacquainted with the egg. to make it more dinner-friendly, i opted for pan-fried polenta instead of bread.
i’ll be the first to admit that this isn’t the most healthy meal, but it’s hearty, interesting, and easy.
fried eggs over pan-seared polenta with zucchini, cauliflower, and feta
- 2 eggs
- 1 small zucchini, 1/2 inch slices
- 1 head of cauliflower
- 3 slices of bacon, diced
- 2 slices of pre-made, ready-to-cook polenta
- 2 Tbsp. feta cheese
- 4 Tbsp. butter
- 2 Tbsp. olive oil
- parmesan, optional
finished plate: place the polenta on a plate and place the eggs on top. spoon the zucchini and bacon over the the eggs. sprinkle with feta cheese. place the cauliflower next to the eggs and polenta. sprinkle with parmesan, if you want.
