Sweet Potato Pancake Stacks

This elegant dish may taste and look gourmet, but it’s far from anything that requires a lofty effort in the kitchen. Garnish options include hot sauce, smoked salt, grated Parmesan, and/or parsley.

6 large free-range eggs
1 medium-sized sweet potato, peeled and grated
1 garlic clove, minced
2 tsp (10 mL) curry powder
1/4 tsp (1 mL) salt
1/4 tsp (1 mL) black pepper
2 Tbsp (30 mL) + 2 tsp (10 mL) grapeseed oil, divided
2 shallots, minced
3 cups (750 mL) sliced white mushrooms
4 cups (1 L) spinach, ends trimmed
1 Tbsp (15 mL) lemon juice

In large bowl, lightly beat 2 eggs. Stir in grated sweet potato, garlic, curry powder, salt, and pepper.

Heat 1 Tbsp (15 mL) oil in large skillet over medium heat. Place 4 equal-sized mounds of sweet potato mixture in pan and flatten with spatula. Cook for 3 minutes per side, or until golden on both sides. Remove from pan and keep warm on baking sheet in oven set to 200 F (100 C).

Place 2 tsp (10 mL) oil in pan and add shallots and mushrooms. Cook until mushrooms have softened, about 3 minutes. Stir in spinach and cook until slightly wilted. Stir in lemon juice. Remove vegetables from pan and cover to keep warm.

Reduce heat to medium-low and heat 1 Tbsp (15 mL) oil. Carefully crack remaining 4 eggs into skillet. For sunny side up, cook until whites are set and outer edges start to curl up. If you prefer over easy, flip eggs and cook for an additional 30 seconds.

To serve, place sweet potato pancakes on 4 serving plates and top each with equal amount of vegetable mixture and 1 egg.

Serves 4.
