  1. If you didn’t already make vinaigrette for Tuesday’s dinner, whisk together paprika, red wine vinegar, honey, and oil. Season to taste with salt and pepper and set aside.
  2. Heat a skillet over medium heat. Add in oil and then chopped bacon. Cook until bacon has crisped up, about 3 to 4 minutes. Remove from pan and drain all but 1 tbsp (15 ml) of fat.
  3. Return pan to medium-high heat. Add in white parts of green onions and saute until softened, ~3 minutes. Next add in portobellos with a dash of salt. Saute until tender and add in leftover sweet potatoes.
  4. Lower heat to medium and pour in eggs. Let eggs sit until the bottom part starts to form. Lightly scramble and cook until eggs are to the consistency you want. Cooking eggs on lower heat yields fluffier eggs. Toss in salsa and scramble everything up. Remove from heat.
  5. Toss spinach and tomatoes with vinaigrette. Top your mushroom and sweet potato egg scramble with bacon bits and green parts of green onions and enjoy with salad.
